What to Wear in Sudan

Last updated on March 16th, 2021

Sudanese society is a very conservative one but at the same time a very hospitable one. Revealing clothes in public places would invite severe criticism. Dress very conservatively whilst in public – longer skirts to at least mid-shin or loose trousers and tops with sleeves at the very minimum up to the elbows. Should you have the pleasure of being invited to a family home, do check whether is it a more ‘traditional’ or more ‘modern’ family you will be visiting. In either case, I would suggest dressing on the conservative side for your first visit. Sudan is very hot and dusty in the northern provinces, and light-weight, light coloured clothing would be more comfortable. A hat is not a bad idea too. Hope you have an enjoyable visit.
