Destination Information for South Sudan
South Sudan gained its independence from Sudan in 2011. This landlocked African country boasts four national parks, and is known for its natural wonders. Officially the world’s newest nation, it hasn’t yet had the opportunity to establish much of an infrastructure or tourist industry, but for the intrepid few who do make the effort to visit, it is well worth a trip.
The capital of South Sudan, Juba, is situated on the banks of the White Nile, where you can see examples of the country’s British colonial architecture. Most visitors will prefer to experience the more natural side to South Sudan, including one of the world’s largest inland swamps or wetlands at Bahr el Jebel or “Mountain Sea”. Visit the Boma National Park to see the greatest migration of large mammals on earth. This region is also known for its tribal camps.
South Sudan is the great unknown. There is so much unexplored and undiscovered beauty here that some tourists may be apprehensive, although this same ‘unknown’ factor is also for many the attraction of this mysterious land.
