Destination Details

Yei, South Sudan

 

Bahr El Jebel Safaris does not operate in this park yet. Rebel activity in the park hunting for meat for their fighters and poaching for ivory have stopped us. Hopefully this situation will change,  because the park is a one day drive from Juba, which is logisticaly easy for tourists.

The park is 760 square kilometers (290 square miles) and lies up against the border with DR Congo. The nearest large town is Yambio. Lontoto Park and Garamba National park of DR Congo are seperated only by the international border.

The park boundaries have not been de marcated. The plant life is a combination of woodland, forest and open grassland.

No survey of the wildlife has been made of Lontoto Park. Directly across the unmarked border with DR Congo in Garamba National Park there are - elephant (estimated 2000 in number), Nile buffalo, Hippo, Uganda Kob, Roan antelope and Giraffe. The park was also the location of the last population of Northern White Rhino (now exinct). 

Garamba National Park in DR Congo which is an extension of Lontoto National Park in South Sudan. Only an unmarked international border seperates the two parks.
