Dilling is a small town at the foot of the Nuba Mountains, 160 km to the south of El Obeid.
The bus station for Dilling (Mawgaf el Dillinj) is situated on the outskirts of El Obeid. The taxi drivers know it.
From there, you can travel in small buses. The trip costs SDG 12 and the bus only leaves when it is full. These buses are quite scrammed and not very comfortable. But you’ll probably make interesting encounters.
If you want to travel more comfortable, you can go by car. They take 4 passengers and charge SDG 15 p. person. They also leave only when they are full. If you are one or two, you have therefore to find other passengers or to pay for four.
We visited Dilling only for 1 day and we paid SDG 120 for the go and return trips, the driver waiting for us in Dilling, and for a few SDG extra, even drove us around town.
These cars are private cars (public buses and taxis have green number plates) and are not allowed to perform taxi duties. Don’t be surprised is our car suddenly turns in the desert and drives for a few kilometres over uneven tracks before returning to the road. They make this to avoid traffic checkpoints.
The road (it is a toll road) is very good and the trip is done in about 2 ½ hours.
