Visit one of the world’s newest and least well-known countries on a South Sudan Tour, where modern tourism meets the ancient traditions of a people in a way that is both surprising and moving.

South Sudan is more than just its long history of civil wars and instability. Because of this instability, South Sudan has historically made it extremely difficult for outsiders to conduct explorations of the nation. On the other hand, after achieving independence in 2011, the nation has miraculously overcome all of these tragedies. Nearly four percent of South Africa’s gross domestic product comes from the tourist sector. It is still difficult to explore all of South Sudan because some parts are still dangerous.

This country has taken a lot of heat, but it also offers a lot of appealing aspects. Little is said about the rivers, lakes, 14 national parks, national reserves, the Sudd, the biggest swamp in the world, and likely the finest place on Earth to see birds. South Sudan is home to national parks that dwarf some East African nations.

A lot of people also make the error of thinking that Juba is the only thing the county has to offer. Traveling to rural South Sudan is where you will have the most memorable experiences. With the assistance of a knowledgeable local guide, South Sudan’s unique fauna and cultures can be uncovered in the country’s expansive and remote wilderness.

SOUTH SUDAN: Why You Should Visit | Top 5 Unmissable Attractions

South Sudan Safari Packages

Without a shadow of a doubt, South Sudan ranks high among the most treacherous travel destinations. The world’s youngest nation, established in 2011, is likely the least visited country in Africa. You won’t discover any typical “sights” in South Sudan. More than half of the country is devoid of “traditional roads” as well. Ancient cultural practices, a plethora of vibrant local tribes, and breathtaking natural scenery are what you may expect to find.

Our South Sudan vacation packages take you to remote tribal communities whose traditions have survived virtually unchanged for generations, far from the tourist traps. If you think you’ve seen it all, you probably haven’t been to South Sudan. People here give you blank looks when you mention tourism, even though the world’s newest nation has only been formally recognized since 2011.

When it comes to its neighbors, South Sudan has a lot in common with Kenya and Ethiopia. Similarities exist between the many indigenous communities of this area and the Omo Valley and the deserts of northern Kenya. However, the modern world has scarcely made an entrance here due to the protracted struggle with the north. Naked warriors prowl the countryside, cattle are the measure of wealth, and tribal units hold more importance than modern nation-states. This is a very wild Africa.

We did not choose this as an easy location. Travelers planning a vacation to South Sudan should brace themselves for some of the continent’s worst roads, as well as inadequate or nonexistent infrastructure and bureaucracy that is sure to slow them down. There is still an air of mystery and adventure here that the more well-trodden paths just can’t compete with. Traveling through Africa seems like it happened thirty or forty years ago.

The Toposa are one of the most ancient and remote African ethnic groups, and reaching their homeland in South Sudan’s “wild east” is like reaching the edge of the planet. Men don’t wear much, while many older ladies still wear skirts fashioned from animal skins. Despite the lack of conventional “sights,” the country’s many inhabitants are its greatest asset. The Mundari wrestlers and the Boya in their lovely villages are two examples of communities who have probably never experienced outsiders.

We coordinate with our local guides to stay away from areas of South Sudan where there have been reports of armed conflicts, interethnic violence, or high crime rates. Keep in mind that South Sudan is still somewhat insecure, even though we are collaborating with highly skilled and informed local partners. At the time of our visits, our partners will constantly check to see if the locations are secure. The itinerary may need to be adjusted on occasion, though this happens extremely seldom. It is always done with the utmost care for your safety and the safety of the group, so please know that. Before you decide to go to South Sudan, you should look at government advisories like the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s.

  • Is there corruption in South Sudan

Many of the individuals we meet will be living in abject poverty; therefore, even small donations can have a profound impact on their lives. For instance, you are allowed to bring ordinary household medicines and common school supplies for the kids. Those contributions will have the greatest possible impact thanks to our advisors. For those unfamiliar with the culture, the prevalence of gifts—or bribes, as some would call them—in South Sudan might be perplexing. For that reason, it will be our local guide’s responsibility to present the various community leaders with their gifts and contributions. We kindly request that you not directly contribute to these causes, as they are already factored into the tour price. Before making a donation, please review your instructions.

  • When is the best time to visit South Sudan

In a way, any time of year is fine to visit South Sudan because the weather is rather consistent throughout the year. Be advised to consult with us (Kabira Safaris & Tours Africa and The Bespoke African Safari Co. before planning a solo tour to South Sudan, as the seasonal movements of the tribes are influenced by their nomadic lifestyle.

  • How do you travel to South Sudan

The capital of South Sudan, Juba, is an excellent airport to travel into because it has connections from several African nations, including Sudan and Ethiopia, as well as Dubai. For the time being, we advise against traveling across any land border into South Sudan.

  • What currency should I bring to South Sudan

The best approach to stay out of trouble is to bring solely US dollars in cash. No stains, ink, tears, or stamps allowed; currency must be from 2009 or later. Any notes that don’t adhere to all of these requirements will be rejected by commercial banks and the Central Bank, therefore it’s best to use brand new ones. Bear in mind that South Sudan is home to almost no ATMs and an even smaller number of businesses that accept credit cards.

  • What should I wear in South Sudan

Daytime temperatures in South Sudan are consistently high throughout the year. Loose, light-colored clothing that allows air to circulate and doubles as a sunblock is what you need to bring. But, a sweater and other warm clothing should be brought because the nights can get rather chilly. Bring adequate clothing to be comfortable sleeping outdoors because we will be camping for a few nights.

  • Are there ATMs in South Sudan

One financial institution has an automated teller machine that prints out USD. South Sudan solely deals in US dollars. It is advisable to stay away from these transactions if you can, as they may not go through due to limitations imposed by your home bank. You should check with your home bank to see if they have abolished such limitations before each trip.

  • Can you drink in South Sudan

It is perfectly legal to drink alcohol in South Sudan. Juba, the capital city, has a vibrant nightlife that you may enjoy in the clubs and pubs on your final night of the tour. Beers usually cost between $2 and $3 at restaurants.

  • Is it ethical to travel to South Sudan

War, widespread corruption, and civil unrest have plagued South Sudan since its independence. penalties have been imposed on South Sudan as a result of this, and it is the poor who are bearing the brunt of these penalties, not the ruling class. This leads us to believe that it is not only morally sound, but also greatly beneficial to the general public. It all comes down to your personal view when it comes to ethical questions.
