IntroductionThis small market town on the Nile north of Khartoum is near the ruins (small pyramids and a temple) of Jebel Bakal. Farther south in Kurru are other interesting antiquities (underground tombs with paintings). And just across the Nile by ferry are the ruins of Merowe (not to be confused with Meroe), the site of the ancient capital of Napata. Karima can be reached by railway, but not by road. 210 mi/340 km northeast of Khartoum.
