TOURIST AND HISTORICAL PLACES IN SOUTH SUDAN

imeechan

Kidepo Game Reserve – Elephants and defassa waterbuck frequently wander directly into the wildlife lodges that dot the reserve’s perimeter, so expect to see them up close and personal.

bahr-el-jebel

Bor – One of the best sites to watch a traditional Sudanese wrestling match is still in Bor, which was formerly the location of some of the first Christian missions ever established in this region of Africa.

The South National Park – The region hasn’t been well explored over the past 70 years, which is oddly off-the-beaten-path for travelers to this part of Africa. The Congo lion, the colobus monkey, bushbabies, marabou storks, and numerous kobs can all be seen by visitors.

Radom National Park – Visitors can view endangered doka woodlands, elephant herds that roam free, tree-peppered savannah, bouncing gazelles, and an abundance of other uncommon East African animals in that short portion of the reserve, so it is unquestionably worth seeing.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION HABITAT PROTECTION IN SOUTH SUDAN

South Sudan lies between latitudes 3° and 13°N, and longitudes 24° and 36°E. Tropical forest, wetlands, and grassland are all present there. Juba is near where the White Nile travels through the nation.

The second-largest wildlife migration in the world takes place in the protected region of Bandingilo National Park in South Sudan. Large populations of hartebeest, kob, topi, buffalo, elephants, giraffes, and lions were found to live in Boma National Park, west of the Ethiopian border, as well as the Sudd wetland and Southern National Park, close to the border with Congo.

Bongo, big forest hogs, red river hogs, forest elephants, chimpanzees, and forest monkeys may all be found in South Sudan’s forest reserves. Astonishingly, the massive movement of 1.3 million antelopes in the southeast is still mostly intact, according to surveys conducted by WCS in 2005 in collaboration with the semi-autonomous government of Southern Sudan.

Habitats in the country include grasslands, high-altitude plateaus and escarpments, wooded and grassy savannas, floodplains, and wetlands.

EFFECT OF CLIMATE CHANGE IN SOUTH SUDAN

The climate in South Sudan is tropical, with two distinct seasons: a wet season with high humidity and lots of rain, followed by a dry season. The average temperature is always high, with the coldest month being July with average temperatures between 20 and 30 °C and the warmest being March with average temperatures between 23 and 37 °C.

The rainy season can start in April and go until November, although May through October is when it rains the most frequently. May is typically the wettest month. The change to southerly and southwesterly winds, which results in somewhat lower temperatures, increased humidity, and more cloud cover, is “affected by the annual movement of the Inter-Tropical Zone”.

South Sudan has experienced severe flooding in recent years as a result of climate change’s increasing effects on the country. Every year, between 750,000 and over one million people are affected by floods, and half of them are compelled to abandon their homes for higher ground.
