South Sudan is the newest country in the world after Africa’s largest country, Sudan, split into two in 2011. It hasn’t been an easy road at all. Civil war broke out as soon as independence was celebrated and at present this is one of the poorest and least developed countries. Over half of the population are under 18 years old. The major drawcard for curious travellers is to see the tribal groups and national parks. For now though, most governments advise against any travel to this nation until stability is established.
