Understand[edit]

History[edit]

As water sources dry up after the seasonal rains, and then again when the seasonal rains return, enormous herds of animals migrate in Boma National Park, South Sudan. It is estimated that the migration is far greater than the famous migration of the Serengeti, where nearly 2,000,000 animals search for grazing. Every year the movement takes place at different times depending on the rains. Some of the elephants have been radio collared so that they can be tracked. See the November 2010 issue of National Georgraphic about elephants being radio collared in Boma. Boma National Park is the 5th largest national park (NP) or game reserve (GR) in all of Africa. Boma National Park is 22,800 square kilometers (km2). Boma National Park is 2,280,000 hectareas (5,631,600 acres) in size. This vast park has virtually no roads or park ranger outposts. Mostly flat it is crossed by many small streams and swamps. There are only 4 parks larger than Boma in Africa. They are Mudumu NP 85,000 km2 (Namibia), Selous GR 55,000 km2 (Tanzania), Central Kalahari GR 52,000 km2 (Botswana), and Namib-Nankluft NP 49,768 km2 (Namibia)
