Kidepo valley wildlife park

A+ R A-

Kidepo is located in the extreme northeastern corner of Uganda on the border with Kenya and Sudan and is not only one of Uganda’s most impressive parks but is also the most remote park in Africa. It covers an area of 1442km2 and the scenery is more like the arid savannah found elsewhere in East Africa than the lush Greenery of Uganda’s other National Parks.


“the few who make the long journey north through the wild frontier region of Karamoja would agree that it is also the most magnificent, for Kidepo ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses…”


It can be reached by air and by road thus visitors are guaranteed an almost private safari. With 80 species, Kidepo supports a wider diversity of mammals than any other Ugandan park and the animals you should expect to see include zebras, herds of elephants and buffalo, dik-dik, lesser kudu and waterbuck. Sightings of lion and giraffe are common, while more rare is the possibility of seeing leopard and cheetah.

The game viewing is particularly spectacular during the dry season when the animals remain in one valley, overlooked by Apoka safari lodge, ornithologists the official checklist includes 462 species with verraux’s eagle, the lammergeyer and five different species of hornbills amongst them. Kidepo, due to its remote location is unique park that enchants the few who reach there and it would almost definitely be the high point of any African safari.
