This is a very well maintained and cared for commonwealth soldier memorial and credit should be given for its guardianship. Although the service people are not actually buried in the memorial grounds, the fact there is a point of remembrance for them is worthy.

It was a beautiful environment. Itvhas a clear look and green at the same time. I loved it the first time I saw it. I am willing to arrange another moment to revist it again. It is so lovable.

This attraction appears to be a beautifully kept cemetery. There are headstones and memorials all well kept and tended to. But no one is truly buried here. The soldiers are buried elsewhere or were never found. Go to honor the dead...even though they are not...More

I'm not sure that the graves are actually occupied, but it's a very nice memorial. It's well kept. Easily viewable from outside if the gate is locked

Located in a quiet neighborhood near some embassies, this cemetery is a touching monument to the Commonwealth soldiers fallen in the wars fought in the region, well before the WWII also. It's not a touristic spot, but a place to pay respect to these soldiers....More

Unfortunately not in an accessible place for all to see. Should be marked as a "must see" place for tourists as well as locals. There is no other cemetery like it in Sudan

An easy walk from central Khartoum, contains about 400 Commonwealth War Graves, a nice place to stop by and pay your respects
