South Sudan is roughly located south of the latitude of 10 degrees north latitude (the capital Juba is located at 10 degrees north latitude), and its terrain is dominated by tropical rain forests, grasslands and swamps. The annual rainfall in South Sudan ranges from 600 to 2,000 millimeters. The rainy season is from May to October each year. As the White Nile River flows through this area, the slope is extremely small, only one-thirteen thousandths, so it comes from Uganda and Ethiopia Two floods reached this area. The flow slowed down and it flooded, forming a large swamp ─ ─ Sude Swamp. The local Nilotic people moved to the highlands before the rainy season. They must wait for the flood to recede before they move from the highlands to the highlands. River banks or depressions with water. The black Nile is half farming and half herding. The agriculture is mainly cassava, peanut, sweet potato, sorghum, sesame, corn, rice, cowpea, beans and vegetables. The most important animal husbandry is cattle, because there are few forests in this area. And there is a half-year drought, which is not conducive to the development of tsetse flies. Therefore, South Sudan is an important cattle producing area. In addition, there are many fish production.
The plateau area where the White Nile River flows through forms the Sude Swamp, which is one of the main wetlands in Africa. During the rainy season, the area of the swamp can reach more than 51,800 square kilometers. , Nearby tribes will use reeds to make floating islands, and temporarily live and fish on the floating islands to form a floating fishing camp.
