The country bordering South Sudan to the south is Uganda. In Uganda over 1000 different species of birds have been identified. Does this same number exist in South Sudan? We think so. This will be a first of many safaris to identify the birds of South Sudan.
At the same time you will visit the tribes of Mundari,Toposa, Jie, and Dinka, and visit the great Sudd swamp
The town of Jonglei on the west bank of the Nile River (75 km north of Bor) where you will spend two days birding. This is the southern edge of the great Sudd swamp.
