Seref Tourism & Hospitality has awarded Dubai-based hospitality consultant Thomas Klein International (TKI) the operations management contract for the El Seref complex located in Khartoum, North Sudan. I t is the largest fully-indoor and air-conditioned restaurant operating in Africa .

TKI was originally appointed to manage El Seref's pre-opening, as well as the design of the technical kitchen and back-of-house area.

After successfully managing the various aspects of the preopening period, TKI has now been assigned the management of the complex.

TKI principal and MD Daniel During said: "For years, TKI has operated internationally as a highly successful hospitality consultancy and design firm. The company has also managed many businesses locally under management contracts.


"We have now reached a new milestone by securing the additional scope of services for the El Seref complex, as it is our first overseas management contract."
