Kidepo Valley National Park lies in semi arid valleys between Uganda’s borders with Sudan and Kenya, some 700km from Kampala. It has a lot of big game safari and hosts over 77 mammal species as well as around 475 bird species.
Kidepo Valley National Park is Uganda’s most isolated national park, but the few who make the long safari north through the region of Karamoja would agree that it is also the most magnificent, Kidepo Valley National Park ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses. From Apoka, in the heart of the park, a savannah landscape extends far beyond the gazette area, towards horizons outlined by distant mountain ranges.
During the dry season, the only permanent water in the park is found in wetlands and remnant pools in the broad Narus Valley near Apoka. These seasonal oases, combined with the open, savannah terrain, make the Narus Valley the park’s prime game viewing location and photographing easier.
