Boma National Park is a conservation area of 22,800 sq kilometers (8,800 sq mi) in Boma State, South Sudan, declared in 1986 and includes grasslands and floodplains. Large herds migrate in Boma involving 2,000,000 animals looking for grass formed by seasonal precipitation each year into a spectacular movement at different times.

Boma National Park is a park mostly flat and crossed by many small rivers and swamps. South Sudan is an arena of animal migration taking place throughout the year in slow motion depending on the grass and rain that involves millions of animals.

March to June the animals move from North to South and West to East because the rain will start. In November to January they move from South to North and East to West due to the dry season where the grass has run out.

The most prominent species of white-eared kob (Kobus kob leucotis) is mostly to the east of the Nile River in South Sudan in clay and wetlands. The migration route during the wet and dry seasons is determined by year-over-year variations in rainfall and floods that extend over 1,600 kilometers (990 miles).

The area was once occupied briefly by a group of cultures for at least 300 to 400 years and the estimated population is 1500 and 3000 people.
