    "Bradt reaches the parts other travel publishers don't reach" The Independent
    Back cover copy
    Two years after achieving independence, South Sudan is in the midst of tremendous change: as the country seeks to define itself, now is the perfect time to witness this exciting transition. Immerse yourself in the hectic energy of Juba, the world's youngest capital, or tackle Grade 5 rapids on a white-water rafting trip from Nimule. Explore the remarkable biodiversity of five national parks and capture a glimpse of the elusive 'Big Five'. With comprehensive, up-to-date information on everything from safety and health to cultural etiquette and transportation, Bradt's South Sudan appeals to a broad audience of expats and first-time visitors. The first standalone printed guidebook by a leading publisher, this guide is an indispensable companion to a beguiling nation in its infancy; let Sophie and Max inspire you to explore the secrets of the world's newest country.
