South Sudan Travel guide

South Sudan is located in north-eastern Africa. Ethiopia borders south Sudan to the east, Sudan to the north, Uganda to the south and the Central African Republic to the west. Its rich biodiversity includes swamplands, lush savannas, and rainforests that are home to many different species of wildlife. The Nile River and its tributaries drain the country region Read more

  • The climate of South Sudan is tropical with wet and dry seasons. From May to October, it is considered as rainy seasons and remaining months are regarded as dry seasons and sandstorms are quite common in dry season's time. Plan your trip between March- April or between November and early January to see the wildlife migrations. Most of the people are Africans who follow the traditional African Christian religion. There is a small population of Arab people as well who speaks Arabic and English since Sudan is an Islamic country, so it's better to be mindful and respect the culture.
  • South Sudan is an independent and safe country. Though it comes under the less developed countries, the primary income comes from farming and Animal husbandry. You can't use your credit cards in Sudan because of embargoes so better carry sufficient cash for your expense. You can buy a sim card, and phone coverage in Sudan is good. Getting around from one place to another by car is the best option.
