Vintage Advertisements

I just came across these old adverts promoting tourism in Sudan and I really love them! (Tourism is no longer so encouraged under the current government)

    particularly like the illustrated one xxx

  2. Excellent and thanks for sharing!
    May I ask where did you spot them?

    But I am afraid that I will have to correct you:
    Of course the government wishes to have tourists!!
    But from where and doing what are things that have very much changed since the era of the posters you posted…

    • But they’ve made it pretty difficult for any foreigners to enter the country. I have heard from many Sudanese that tourism is no longer encouraged as it was before, which is missing a great opportunity for a flourishing tourism industry here.

      • Possibly. Let’s hope that the situation will change, in that as well as other matters…
