"It didn't matter how often Salva swattered at the mosquitoes... No one in the group got any sleep. The mosquitoes made sure of that."

so many mosquoites!
"They are driving us back to Sudan. Salva thought. They will force us to cross the river. The Gilo was well known for something else too, crocodiles."

"He clung to uncle like a baby or a little boy, hanging on to his hand or shirttail when he could, never letting uncle get farther than an arm's length away. Marial was gone_vanished into the night.His disappearance could only meant one thing, a lion"
Uncle, i am scared
Salva, don't worry. i have a gun.
Salva have to cross the Gilo river when the people are forced to leave the refugee camp. Having no place to escape, Salva have to cross the river where it is known for crocodiles, which can do harm to Salva's life. This is the conflict of man vs nature, external conflict because it is between Salva and the crocodiles and the river Salva have to cross.
There are a lot of mosquitoes around the tent where Salva and his uncle is having a night over. This causes Salva and his uncle not to have a good night sleep because there are a lot of mosquitoes distracting them. This is a man vs nature, external conflict because the mosquitoes are around them and make them feel uncomfortable.
Clunging to his uncle's arm is the only way to keep himself think that he is safe and uncle will give him support, after Marial got killed by the lion, a lion came at night and brought Marial away. This is man vs self, an internal conflict because the incident turns Salva to be really scared and could not leave uncle.
