The state of tourism in Southern Sudan


(eTN) There have been many questions in the past over reports on the state of tourism to the Southern Sudan and how best to visit the parks already restored by the government of Southern Sudan over the past five years, since the Comprehensive Peace Agreement was signed in Kenya in early 2005.

Mexico and Uganda-based Bahr el Jebel Safaris, which operate regular safaris in Northern Uganda towards the border with the Southern Sudan, have just provided the dates for their 2010 Southern Sudan expedition, which will take participants between September 30 until October 10 to the Nimule National Park along the Nile River and the Boma National Park located along the border with Ethiopia. It is there that an annual migration can be seen of as many as 800,000 white-eared kobs, an antelope species resident in this part of Eastern Africa. The expedition will also include a visit to the Kidepo Valley National Park in the Northeastern border triangle between Uganda, Southern Sudan, and Kenya. Visit for more information.
