Best time to Visit South Sudan
The best time to visit South Sudan is December to early February. You’ll barely see a drop of rain at the beginning of the year, when dawn-to-dusk sunshine and hot but not quite sizzling – temperatures rule the roost. The rainy season is the only no-go, when surface runoff can make the dusty tracks between villages impassable.
The rainy season in South Sudan occurs between April and October transforms the landscape, growing the Sudd swamps, filling the White Nile floodplains, and triggering massive animal migrations.
Best time to Visit the Mundari tribes and in their Cattle Camps in South Sudan
The Mundari tribes and in their Cattle Camps can be visited throughout the year. Like the Dinka, the Mundari tribe is one of the most populous and traditional tribes of South Sudan. The Mundari are cattle herders as well as fierce warriors. They live in symbiosis with their cattle and nothing is more important for them than their cows, to an extent they sleep with their cattle all night and there is nothing they can accept as an exchange for their cattle including money.
Visiting the Mundari tribes and in their Cattle Camps in South Sudan will give you an opportunity to experience the daily life of the Mundari tribe including the kids doing most of their daily work. You will see them collect the fresh cow dung and put it into piles which are then set on fire. Those fire are useful as they repel the (extremely) numerous and voracious flies and mosquitoes of the South Sudanese countryside. The Mundari also use the ash created by these fires to rub on themselves and their cattle, creating protection against mosquitoes.
The best way to explore and experience the Mundari tribes and in their Cattle Camps is by camping in the tent within the Mundari cattle camps giving you an opportunity to see and experience both the day and night life of the Mundari tribe as they honor their cattle. Eco Adventure Safaris will help organize and plan for you accordingly.
