South Sudan gained its independence in 2011 earning the title of the world’s newest country and capturing attention from all travellers around the world. We’ve designed our South Sudan Budget tour aligned with our ethos of making off the beaten path’ destinations affordable and accessible to you.
Your journey starts in Juba, the capital of the young nation, where you’ll visit the Presidential Palace, explore the Jubek Tomb, meet the students of Juba University, wander the largest market in the country where you’ll encounter many different traditional dresses, tattoos and body scarifications and overnight to experience what the nightlife has to offer.
South Sudan may have one of Africa’s most horrible road conditions we’ve ever experienced but nothing that’ll stop our 4WDs. We’ll begin our road trip to a rural settlement of the Mundari people – a fascinating tribe that have safeguarded their unique way of life. The locals here are incredibly welcoming and aren’t shy to invite you to join them. If you’ve seen photos of the Mundaris, you’ll probably know how photogenic, dreamy and intense the atmosphere of their cattle camp can be. One of YPT’s favourite highlights in all of Africa.
Due to logistical restraints we can only hold spots up to 12 group members. Be sure not to miss out and join our unbeatable budget tour to South Sudan.
