Kapoeta is a town in south-eastern Sudan.

Transport

The town is served by Kapoeta Airport, though the term airport is a bit of a misnomer; it is merely a dirt strip. The main Lokichoggio-Juba (dirt) road runs through Kapoeta.

Culture

Kapoeta town sits in a land dominated by the Toposa ethnic group. The Didinga also live in the area, but they are farmers and tend to inhabit the fertile, wetter hills, whereas the cattle-centric Toposa dominate the plains.
