To the east of the Nile lies the Nubian Desert.

The Western Sudan Front includes the areas known as Darfur and Kordofan.

West Darfur is an undulating plain dominated by a volcanic rocky mass

The high-rise mountain of Al-Marah is 900 meters above the Sudanese plain.

West Darfur stands in contrast to North and East Darfur

Which is almost submerged by little water either from intermittent flows known as wadis or from wells

Which usually dry up during the winter months.

The southern region of western Sudan is known as “Al Quoz”.

It is a land of sand dunes characterized by the availability of grass in the rainy season

One of the unique features of western Sudan is the Nuba mountain range in southeast Kordofan

In the center of the country, it is a dome-shaped group of isolated hills

And sugar guns that climb sharply and instantly from the Great Sudanese Plain.

The third region in Sudan

They are the central clay plains that extend east from the Nuba Mountains to the Ethiopian border

Only the Ingisana Hills break it.

Between the Dinder and Rahad rivers, a series of low hills descend

From the Ethiopian highlands to break the endless plains horizon
