Juba Things to Do

  • The Market

    There are several markets in Juba, but they are not exottic, being a poor country. Makets give you an idea of how the people live in that town.

  • Lazzying Along the Nile.

    Juba can apparently be so humid and hot that you would think khartoum is even warmer thats why I suggest you take a walk to the bank of Nile at Apex or Bros which are some sort of camping grounds but only that you don't need to carry nothing but your wallet and enjoy a cold beer under the shade of the mango trees that stretch from from God knows...

Juba Restaurants

  • Cheap and tasty Chinese

    5 of us shared various dishes and 2 beers each, price was SDG35 each, a pretty decent price in these parts. The restaurant also has two private dining rooms. Try the dumplings, either fried or with Won Ton Soup, they're made from scratch, fresh for your meal. Dumplings

  • Cheap, fresh and tasty local food

    If you're getting tired of paying high prices for substandard food, give Bullando's a try, you can get take away or sit down food here. Judging by the steady stream of locals you can be sure the food is fresh and healthy. During the day you have a choice of either beef or chicken shwarma for SDG5 (throw in a Pepsi or 7up for another SDG2) or you...

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Juba Transportation

  • The airport

    It is located at a walking distance from downtown Juba. I was walking discovering the city and I saw it. In both ways, to and from Nairobi, I caught the bus. In both cases it took me 36 hours each journey. But I was much more than flying. I saw helicopters brought from Russia and the pilots were also Russians.

  • Land Cruiser Prado in Good Nick

    Abebe Bazezew, of Godolias Cars Rent, drove us around with lots of patience for long hours and was always on time. His Land Crusier Prado is in good condition, aircon and electric windows all working properly. Call him on +294 (0) 955 008 100 or +294 (0) 955 008 200 or email: godoliasag@yahoo.com

  • Getting to Juba has never been so easy.

Currently, Marsland Aviation, Sudan Airways, Halla Aviation and Airwest have over 20 regular flights to Juba a week from Khartoum and in addition there are scheduled multiple flights between Juba and Nairobi; Juba and Kampala on weekly bases. From Khartoum to Juba costs some 450 Sudanese Dinnars($200) and...


Juba Warnings and Dangers

  • Forget traffic rules

    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

    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...

    South Sudan visa

    by thelittlevoice Written May 16, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: As of April, 2013

    My 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. I applied at 9am and were told to pick it up at 3pm. I took Baby coach bus leaving Kampala at 8.30pm and arrived in Juba at 4pm. The ticket was 70,000. We arrived at the border around 7am. Getting an exit stamp from Uganda was quick and easy. When we got to South Sudan side, we were told to get into a room to get a visa with people of other nationalities besides SS. I then showed an official there that I already had a visa so he took my passport, stamped it and let me in. It probably took like 2 minutes. But I had to wait til almost noon for others to get their visas. I'm not sure if you can get a visa at the border or not but everyone except us did get it there and it costs only 200 SS Pounds so it's a lot cheaper than getting it done at the embassy.
