Johnny Haglund / Professional Photographer2010-May-09
I am a Norwegian freelance photographer, shooting stories for various magazines in several countries. In April and May 2010, I had the pleasure of traveling in Sudan. Despite all the negative publicity this country has received during the last decade, I found Sudan to be one of the most exiting countries I have ever visited.
During my journey in Sudan, I used Lendi Tourism. I traveled with a 4x4, a driver and one fixer/interpreter. We started out from Khartoum and headed north, on the west side of the Nile, visiting small villages in the desert.
Then we headed back south on the east side of this famous river. After a visit on the Red Sea coast, we traveled back to Khartoum, to see the Nuba wrestlers, before we went further south to Demazzine and into the plains south of the Blue Nile.
Most of what I have read about traveling in Sudan highlights the country’s archeological sites. Although Sudan has some great ruins, the real attractions in Sudan are its people. The diversity is magnificent – especially for a photographer.
My fixer, Mr. Moez, helped me a great deal to achieve my job. He has a friendly approach, which opened up many doors, and he knew very well how to handle the police… which at times can be a little bit of a hassle.
All in all, I am very satisfied with Lendi Tourism, and on my next trip to Sudan – which I look very much forward to – I will defiantly use Lendi Tourism again!
