Like most African presidential palaces, not the best place to visit, can not even walk past, and would not want to photograph. My highlight was being driven past, where on hooting you receive a tapping salute back from the presidential guards

The inside could be laid out better, but there were a lot of interesting historical photos, etc. I really liked looking at the old cars they have on display...

Back in the 80's you used to be able to get near to the Palace to appreciate the building and the views, now though the closest you can get is a view from the outside of the Presidential Museum - you can't even walk along...More

While most of Khartoum is relatively stuck in the past, the Presidential Palace is the exact opposite. With a view overlooking the Nile, the Palace is definitely opulence personified (compared to the surrounding buildings).

As so often a problematic listing on Tripadvisor, as there are two Presidential Palaces both the historical one and the new building are off limits to visitors. Don't try to make photo's as soldiers standing guard can become rather aggressive. The Nile side is forbidden...More

Better to have a look into Sudan presidential palace, there is two palaces, old historical one and the new one gifted by chinese. you will not be able to take photos, but I advise to visit Palace museum just next to it.

Firstly saw ex-state cars going back to the 1930's with a Humber, then Three Royces, and a fantastic Cadillac from the 80's which looked like a hearse. Then the actual museum in a converted church - a very beautiful building with interesting exhibits of items...More
