Yei

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Yei, after the capital Juba, is the second most important city in Central Equatoria, South Sudan. Due to its vicinity to the Ugandan border, Yei is an important and thriving business center for the south of the country. Most of the goods that are imported from the neighbouring country, come through Yei.

Understand[edit]

Strategicly located near the borders with Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda, Yei is a business hub, attracting many traders. Roads are being re-built and the newly re-opened airport ensures the steady flow of goods. However, activites are hamperd by the ongoing conflict with the Lord's Resistance Army. A curfew is in place during nights and the neighboring countryside is still prone to violence.

Get in[edit]

The small Yei Airport is regularly served by Eagle Air [1] from Entebbe, Uganda; however, Southern Sudan Airlines [2] has departures from Juba from time to time. Charter services is also available from Uganda.

The road from Kaya at the Ugandan border has been repaired, reducing travel time to just two hours. However, many other roads are in bad shape. Private taxis serve the route between Kaya and Yei.
