Sudan fixer/visa advice

Hi everyone. I’m always looking for fixers.
Travelling to Sudan in a couple weeks but just for a story in Khartoum. Does anyone know of a fixer in Khartoum??? Any contact is much appreciated.
Also, any points on visas? Can I fly in from Cairo with a US passport and get the visa at the airport?

many thanks

You could get in touch with Evelyn Hockstein. She is on LS too and lives in Nairobi and has made many visits to Karthoum over the last years. She might be able to help you.

I would go to the Acropole Hotel, they are wonderful and will set you up with everyone and everything you need. You can Google them.

I second Gary’s tip on staying at the Acropole. They will take good care of you – and should be able to recommend a good fixer. I’ve used a driver several times through them named Hassan. If you are able to, get him. He’s easy to work with, only potential drawback is he can be a little skittish (though that is not uncommon).

good luck!
