With its formal recognition as a country coming in 2011, South Sudan stands as the youngest country in the entire world. In terms of tourism, you could say South Sudan is young and attractive.
South Sudan hosts the world’s second largest animal migration after the Great Migration of wildebeests between Tanzania and Kenya.
Between January and June, at least half a million antelopes converge on a vast savannah east of the White Nile, moving from the floodplains of the Sudd and Bandingilo National Park across to Boma National Park and into Gambella National Park in Ethiopia.
This mass movement of tiang and white-eared kob is a spectacle to watch. But that is not all South Sudan has to offer. The country also has lions, leopards, and cheetahs as well as elephants, giraffes, zebras, buffalo, hippopotamuses, warthogs, and numerous varieties of antelope, such as gazelles, elands, and hartebeests. Chimpanzees, baboons, and monkeys are found in the forests. Birdlife includes ostriches, several kinds of partridge, cranes, storks, pelicans, plovers, weavers, and shrikes. Reptiles include crocodiles and various lizards.
South Sudan is a great place for cultural tourism too.
