BANDINGALO NATIONAL PARK - 4, 5, 8, 12 and 15 DAY SAFARIS

Giraffe in Bandingalo National Park. It is uncertain which sub-species of Giraffe exists in South Sudan. There is debate it could be the Rothchild's, Nubian or Kordofan sub-species. South Sudan is the intersection of these three sub-species. All three sub-species are low in total population numbers: Kordofan- 2500, Rothchild's- 670 and Nubian- 250. More reserach is required.
