  • Forget traffic rules

    Juba Warnings and Dangers

    Whatch out when walking, driving or cycling. In the last 20 years or so, there has hardly been any maintainance on the roads which are mostly dirt at the moment. But in the last two years the traffic within the town gets heavier everyday, and most of the drivers or riders are either unlicensed or learners which coupled the poor state of the roads...

  • Security

    Juba Warnings and Dangers

    You may see a lot of guns in the street but its either the Police officers or army personel who still walk around town with the AK47s and stuff. Though there is peace currently, it still reminds most people's of the tradgic war. But having roamed the town all night without anyone asking me a question I got the impression its safe, probably safer...

    Juba Favorites

    As of April, 2013My friend and I applied for a SS visa at the embassy in Kampala. The process now takes 3 days, costs $100. But you can pay $25 extra to get it done the same day.

    Yambio Restaurants

    Very few restaurants exist in this region. I found one between Yambio and Maridi, but besides that did not see any others. Mostly had locals that I was staying with prepare the food.

    This is how they bury their dead. This burial site is just a few yards away from the homes - the tukuns (mud huts) on their compound.

  • Out in the Bush

    Maridi Off The Beaten Path

    We visited with a family of which most of the members have been afflicted with river blindness. They live out in "the bush", which is definitely off the beaten path. They depend on others to help take care of them.

  • Peace

    Maridi Warnings and Dangers

    As of March, 2005, we experienced peace in Maridi County.
