This chapter discusses Marcus Simaika's travels in Sudan. Simaika visited Sudan for the first time in 1908, as a member of a Legislative Council delegation that also included Shawarbi Pasha, Mahmud Pasha Fahmi, and Abd al-Latif Bey al-Soufani. The purpose of the visit was to accompany Khedive Abbas Hilmi II, who was to inaugurate the harbor of Port Sudan. In 1909, Simaika again went to Sudan to accompany Pope Cyril V for the consecration of the Coptic Cathedral of Khartoum. On the return journey, Simaika urged Cyril to collect contributions from Coptic notables to fund the relocation of the patriarchal church from its a crowded section of Azbakiya to a spacious suburb of Cairo. In 1910, Simaika visited Sudan for the third and last time at the personal invitation of Sir Reginald Wingate to attend the consecration of the Anglican Cathedral.
