I am sure sure you will enjoy your stay in this warm and peaceful new country with friendly people and a wide variety of facilities and entertainment.
Juba is the fastest growing city in the world. The country is developing very rapidly with unlimited opportunities for investment and cooperation. There is an abundance of natural resources, jungles, both white and blue river Nile, minerals and oil, an un-spoilt paradise. South Sudan boasts the second largest wildlife migration in the world. The country held a referendum in January 2011, and almost 100 percent of the population voted for independence, thus the country became independent on July 9th, 2011. There was a lot of excitement and celebrations. This is a great time to visit and see the newest Nation in the world.
This is the only travel guide for the city.
Travel is my hobby, I made this free site for you to enjoy Juba as much as I do. I have visited all the Hotels, Restaurants, Clubs and other places included in this site, as well as many others. I have worked for four of the organizations listed here over the last ten or so years. There are lots more fun places in Juba but I only included those premium places I enjoyed. I welcome any constructive comments and I will add or amend any text (after confirming the accuracy) for free as long as I feel it will improve the site.Feel free to pay for a banner ad at the top of a page or sponsor the website.
As the city is growing rapidly the information on this web site is also dynamic. I am constantly amending the Guide during my spare time. I encourage comments, observations and suggestions for improvement. I have received sponsorship from a local foundation, thanks to the Deng Foundation for their support. Alvin, my nephew, came to visit, he wrote a journal of his arduous bus ride here, it is in the ‘Jokes’ Page
