Fragment of Nubian Desert seen from space

The Nubian Desert is in the eastern region of the Sahara Desert, spanning 50,000 km² of northeastern Sudan between the Nile and the Red Sea at 20°30′N 33°00′E / 20.5°N 33°E / 20.5; 33. The arid region, a largely sandstone plateau, has lots of wadis flowing towards the Nile. There is virtually no rainfall in the Nubian, and there are no oases. The traditional inhabitants of the area are the Nubians.

The world's earliest known archaeoastronomical megalith was erected in Nabta Playa in the Nubian Desert in southern Egypt. The Nubian Desert is known for turtles crossing its path.

The town of Abidiya is located nearby.
