While the pyramids of Egypt may be the most famous in the world, they’re not the only pyramids in Northern Africa. Sudan happens to be home to its own set of incredibly impressive, ancient structures: the Meroe pyramids. More than 250 pyramids were built in Sudan, to the south of Egypt, during ancient reign. That’s more than double the 120 larger pyramids constructed in Ancient Egypt.

“There are more pyramids in one small section of the northern Sudanese desert than there are in the whole of Egypt.”
