Separated from the north in 2011, South Sudan is the world's newest country and has emerged from decades of inaccessibility as a vibrant and diverse destination. Nature lovers are drawn to the region to experience one of the world's largest wetlands, the many tropical forests and the second-largest wildlife migration on earth. The tribal peoples such as the Dinka, Bari and Zande preserve unique cultures thousands of years in the making. Authors Sophie Ibbotson and Max Lovell-Hoare provide practical information on getting around this new country where the travelling is rugged but the rewards are immense. This stand-alone guide outlines tour operators, hotels, restaurants, suggested itineraries, and how you can give back to the community. The chapter on Sudanese culture provides in-depth coverage of its languages, people and culture. Divided into geographical regions with photographs and maps, South Sudan enables the intrepid traveller to explore the length and breadth of the country.

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.
