Nilotic Sanga
Special Characteristics: 
Retained the original large body, long horns and small cervico-thoracic hump; coat colour is generally white, grey or light fawn; the large body size may be attributed to the suitable grazing area of the Aliab.
Main Location: 
Up Nile, Equatoria and Bahr el Gazal, southern Sudan provinces. Maintained by the south-eastern Dinka (the Aliab Dinka) in southern Sudan.
The original sanga stock evolved in Ethiopia, and the Nilotic Sanga appear to have developed from early migrations and spread across south-western Ethiopia into southern Sudan. This breed in the Sudan has retained the large body size, long horns and small humps of the true sanga.
