South Sudan: one of Africa's least visited nations and the world's newest country. South Sudan gained independence from Sudan in 2011. Most of its history has been steeped in civil conflict, but now the situation is finally easing in most areas of the country. Travellers now have an opportunity to explore the depths of this vibrant, diverse, and young nation.
Our South Sudan tour will start in the capital, Juba. This small but bustling city has many sights for you to see. There is the restless Konyo Konyo Market, where locals purchase all their supplies, and Dr John Garang's Mausoleum, the final resting place of the man who led South Sudan's liberation. A journey north will take you into the heartland of the Mundari tribe. The Mundari are an agro-pastoralist people, with most of their economy centred around their famous, massive-horned Ankole-Watusi cattle. The time you spend with the Mundari will show you a culture and way of life lost in the modern world. You will also visit the Dinka tribe. They are known for being incredibly tall, with an average height of 82.6 cm (5 ft 11.9 in). Lush scenery around every corner, tribes as diverse as they are fascinating, and a population ready to move on from the conflicts of the past, South Sudan has everything to make any traveller feel right at home.
