Kidepo valley National Park

A park that lies in the valleys of north east of Uganda, Kidepo Valley National Park is a vast wilderness of parks in Uganda. The park is an enormous tract of rugged savanna with adversity of wildlife, dominated by the 2.750-meter-high Mount Morungole, and transected by the Kidepo and Narus Rivers. Protected as a national park in 1962, with a profusion of big game and hosts over 77 mammal species as well as around 475 bird species. Kidepo is Uganda’s most isolated national park, but the few who make the long journey north through the wild frontier region of Karamoja would agree that it is the most magnificent, for Kidepo ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses.

Of the mammal Lions, Cheetahs, leopards, greater kudu, beisa oryx,can all be found among the various antelopes wandering the plains. The Karamajong tribe that is similar to the masai mara and Ik, who live, in the most part, traditionally, add even more wonder to a Safari in Kidepo.

Kidepos Game Drives are the most attractive activity, but the Karamajong guided Nature and Community Walks are a close second. In addition, many visitors benefit themselves of the hiking trails up to the mountain to discover some of the diverse vegetation and wildlife that is available. Still others venture along River Kidepo 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 often sighted.
