The Mundari live to the north of Juba, centered around the small settlement of Terekeka. Deriving a living from herding and agriculture they live in small villages and follow a largely traditional lifestyle.
Custom dictates that young men and women are marked with a series of parallel V-shaped scars on their forehead – this tradition is now officially discouraged by the government and is starting to die out but most over the age of around 25 will sport these markings.
The Mundari are locally famed wrestlers, and on certain days of the week young men from neighboring villages will gather to compete against each other in traditional shows of strength.
These are quite a spectacle as the men daub themselves with mud and etch patterns into their bodies, each trying to throw and hold the other to the ground. Watching the surrounding crowd is just as interesting as they cheer and sing songs for their respective teams. This is a chance to see a side of Africa that may not exist for much longer.
Day 3: Juba City Tour and Departure.
After a final morning with the Mundari, return to Juba –South Sudan Capital for relaxation before embarking on a city tour.
