Lower Juba (Somali: Jubbada Hoose, Arabic: جوبا السفلى) is an administrative region (gobol) in southern Somalia. With its capital at Kismayo, it lies in the autonomous Jubaland region. It has green forests and wild life animals such as lions, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles, and hyenas.
Lower Juba is bordered by Kenya, the Somali regions of Gedo, Middle Juba (Jubbada Dhexe), and the Indian Ocean. The province is named after the Jubba River that passes through it and empties into the Indian Ocean at Goobweyn. The Lag Badana National Park is situated in Lower Juba.
The Bajuni Islands are also within the region.
