Kidepo Valley National Park
Known for its true remoteness, Kidepo Valley National Park is a pristine wilderness of savanna grasslands, stunning mountains and riverine landscapes. Perennial running water in the Narus River makes Kidepo an oasis in the semi-desert. Kidepo is definitely off of the classic Uganda safari-circuit, due to its location in the far northern reaches of the country, but the sense of isolation once you arrive is quite a reward.
There are no crowds here, and we love the sense of isolation and the excellent game viewing including lion, cheetah, elephant, giraffe and large buffalo herds. During your stay, enjoy traditional game drives, walking safaris and a visit to the Karamojong Village where you can learn about the history of this interesting community and its culture and traditions.
The only property we recommend to our travelers is Apoka Safari Lodge.
