Swamp
Situated in the southern part of Sudan, the Sudd is a gigantic swamp  formed by the White Nile.  The size varies greatly depending on the season, but can spread to over 130,000 square kilometres in size.

The Nile flows through the Sudd in multiple channels that flow in in ever-changing patterns.  Along the way, it feeds large bodies of water, including Lake Fajarial, Lake No, and Lake Shambe.  The Sudd region is thick with papyrus reeds and wildlife such as crocodiles and hippos.  Less attractive inhabitants include swarms of mosquitos and parasites that also hang out in the area.  The resulting muck was considered nearly impassible by land or watercraft.  It was finally first navigated in 1840.
