Fly To Juba, South Sudan
After being tormented by two decades of civil war, Juba is quickly getting back on its feet. It is developing at a very impressive rate and is currently the largest city and capital of the Republic of South Sudan. And it has quite an interesting history too. Juba actually started out as a trading post where Sir Samuel Baker based himself while exploring South Sudan and Uganda between 1863 and 1865.
Today, Juba is a wonderful place to explore the White Nile River from. Apart from being a river port town, it also boasts numerous restaurants on the riverbanks. These are perfect for lazy afternoons spent whiling away the dry, hot summer months.
