Bahr El Jebel Safaris, South Sudan Safaris
The Safari Company of the River Nile - South Sudan 
Bahr El Jebel Safaris

 The Only Licensed Safari Company in South Sudan                             

Bahr el Jebel is the Arabic name for the White Nile that flows through Northern Uganda, into South Sudan and onward to the Mediterranean Sea. Long before Europeans arrived and changed the river's name it was known as the Bahr el Jebel. This is where our safaris take place.

Our safari company is a pioneer to offer safaris in South Sudan. Come join us venture into areas no tourist has seen for 25 years. Where the africa of 150 years ago still exist.

The people still adhere to their traditional culture and way of dress, still believe in spirits and ancestor worship and all wealth is measured in cattle. The people do not understand what a tourist is and do not dress up for the tourists.

The 5th largest park in all Africa exists in South Sudan to protect the greatest migration of mammals on the earth. This vast park named Boma, has few roads and navigation is often by GPS.

South Sudan has the largest intact savannah in East Africa. You can fly for over 2 hours in a light plane and not see a single human

Bahr el Jebel or Bahr al Jabal is classic Arabic for literally "The Sea of the Mountains". This refers to the giant swamp (the size of England) known as the Sudd, that the Bahr el Jebel flows into. In Juba Arabic (the Arabic of South Sudan) Bahr el Jebel means "The River of the Mountains". You can take a safari by boat into the Sudd with us.

Eco-tourism we practice. We use bottled gas for the majority of the cooking, we always clean our campsites leaving them as we found them and we take our trash out in bags and take it to designated sites. We do not buy bottled water in plastic bottles due to the trash it can create, . We boil water and ask you to bring a canteen.

We have our own Safari Employee School to train drivers, guides, cooks. See the LINK about the school.

 

WATCH THE ANIMATED MAP BELOW SHOWING THE GREATEST MIGRATION OF MAMMALS ON THE EARTH.

Wildlife Biologist have estimated by aerial counts, that more mammals migrate in South Sudan than in the famous Serengeti migration. Close on two million white-eared kob antelope, tiang antelope, mongalla gazelle, elephant, buffalo and many other species, follow the above general migration path. Basically the animals are following the grass and water from wet season to dry season as the grass recedes and then comes back. The wet season is early April to late December and the dry season is late December to late March. Join a 7 or 10 day safari to track the migration.
