Location

Kidepo Valley National Park is a vast wilderness park in the northeast of Uganda located some 700 kilometers from Kampala. Gazetted as a national park in 1962, it has a profusion of big game. The park is a huge tract of rugged savannah with the adversity of wildlife, dominated by the 2,750-meter-high Mount Morungole, and transected by the Kidepo and Narus Rivers.

#Of the 77 mammal species in the park, 28 cannot be found elsewhere in Uganda. Lions, cheetahs, leopards, greater kudu, beisa oryx can all be found among the various antelopes wandering the plains. There are over 500 bird species in the park. All this make it a very special place in East Africa. Because of its isolated location, there are few visitors. The Karamajong tribe, who live, for the most part, traditionally, add even more wonder to a safari in Kidepo.

The rewarding game drives are the most attractive activity in Kidepo Valley National Park, but the Karamajong guided nature and community walks are a close second. In addition, many visitors avail themselves of the hiking trails up the mountain to explore some of the diverse vegetation and wildlife that is available. Still, others venture along Kidepo River to experience a natural sand river with all its trimmings. It goes without saying that Kidepo is a bird watcher’s paradise where ostrich, the largest bird on earth, is an often sighting.
