Housing in Sudan

Popular areas for the expatriate communities in Sudan are Khartoum and Omdurman. Most of the expatriate communities reside in the residential areas of Amarat, New Extension, Riyadh, Khartoum 2, Garden City, Manshia and Kafouri. All of these areas are south of the river in Khartoum.

The availability of apartments and houses in the country and particularly in these popular areas varies. It is difficult to find a good apartment for rent; most of the time it will be a house. Both options are available but mainly depend on your company policy, income, and the length of your stay.

Most houses in the capital city of Khartoum are of bungalow type with three bedrooms, dining room, kitchen and two bathrooms. Some have servant quarters and garage facilities. Apartments are popular with expatriates, as many are newly built, and have either two or three bedrooms. Accommodation can be rented unfurnished or fully furnished. Some renovation is often required due to many of the houses/apartments remaining vacant for long periods of time. Reasonable quality furniture is available on the local market; however it is advised to bring linen.

Air coolers and air conditioners are requisite particularly during the summer months. They, as with all electrical equipment, will require regular servicing due to the dust-laden environment and occasional dust storms (during which the sealing of windows with tape is recommended). Also essential is a power generator due to the regular power cuts, which occur almost daily during the summer months. Voltage stabilisers are also recommended to reduce wide voltage fluctuations and avoid damage to electronic equipment and household appliances. It is strongly recommended that tenants ensure that all of these appliances are installed and working prior to the signing of the lease.

The monthly rent of a two or three bedroom furnished apartment ranges between $1,500 and $2,500. The rent for a house with a garden ranges between $3,000 and $4,000 and for a house with swimming pool at least $5,000; these prices are not fixed and vary according to the location, the house condition and the furniture. An advance of six months to one-year rent is often demanded, however, this can be often negotiated.
