Safari to Nimule National Park

South Sudan is mostly famous for the melting-pot of ethnicity it is made of. It is, however, also a great location for those in search of a safari on the wilder side of the spectrum. Nimule National Park, founded during the British rule,  is a very interesting location at the south of South Sudan, right by the border to Uganda. It is mostly famous for its rivers and herds of elephants. We offer an extension on all our tours of South Sudan to visit Nimule National Park before leaving the country.
