Exploring Sudan’s forgotten pyramids

Besmirched in modern history by two rounds of civil war, and a battle for independence in what is now South Sudan, the east African country has never had the same tourist footfall as its neighbors Kenya, Egypt or Ethiopia.
But while the south-west of the country is still mired in conflict, the Nile Valley area is largely peaceful.
One British tour operator this year started organizing Sudan trips: Dylan Harris, from Wigan, England, founded Lupine Travel in 2007, with the aim of running safe tours to unusual destinations, including Iraq, Iran and North Korea.
CNN talks to Dubai-based Scot Michael Lawson who recently traveled to Sudan for six days with Harris.
