"Hijacking" Sudan Warnings Or Dangers Tip by kucha

Sudan Warnings and Dangers: 51 reviews and 35 photos

We had the joy of being hijacked by a band of men armed with machine guns, as we took the local bus on our oddessy through the countryside. After commandeering our bus and walking up and down the isles studying us (it was wonderful being the only non-Sudanese on the bus), they settled in for the long haul in the front. A couple of hours into this unscheduled detour, they forced us all off the bus on a side road and rode on with their prize. Everyone on the bus, ourselves included, began the long trek to the nearest village -- thankful we were safe.
