At Sunut Forest, Khartoum, Sudan

The Sunut forest lies at the confluence of the White Nile and Blue Nile at about 164 hectares. It is one of the few remaining urban forests in the Sudan. It falls within the flyway of the migratory birds from Eurasia to Africa and is an important educational site for students, recreational area for Greater Khartoum City dwellers and important site for researchers and bird watchers.
The bird sanctuary extends over 15 kilometers along the White Nile River bank and includes cultivated areas and islands. Despite its official declaration as a forest reserve since 1932, and a bird sanctuary in 1945, this forest has been subject to several attempts that aimed at clearing it’s trees and avail its prime land for investment.
