Kidepo Valley National Park
Kidepo Valley National Park is one of the most spectacular parks in Uganda (1,344sq.km). The Park possesses scenery unsurpassed by any other park in East Africa. In the vast panorama you can watch a constant parade of wildlife: Elephant, Zebra,Buffalo, countless Antelope and over 200 species of Birds.
As Kidepo Valley is quite remote, it is easily the most tranquil park. Tucked into the corner of Uganda’s border with Sudan and Kenya, the park contains sensational mountain and savannah landscapes.
The game-viewing loops connect the rest-camp with prime wildlife areas near the Winy River and the rock escarpment to the south-west. On the northern border of the Park are the Kananorok Hot Springs.
The thrilling wildlife seen in this area(which is part of the Karamoja region) includes Lion, Ostrich, Cheetah, Zebra, Leopard, Lions, Elephant, Kudu and Dik-dik.
By Road: Some hardy tourists drive the 840km from Kampala, but this is not generally recommended.
By Air: The airstrip at Apoka gives access for light aircraft.
The Apoka Safari Lodge is available, and camp staff will cook for visitors, who must bring their own food. There are four camping sites close to Apoka.
