Kidepo Valley National Park

In Uganda’s northeast sits the Kidepo Valley National Park. It’s a relatively untouched savannah landscape with vast herds of zebra, buffalo, giraffe and hartebeest. It’s also home to exciting big cats. In Uganda’s northeast sits the Kidepo Valley National Park.

Why Kidepo?
Cheetah, leopard and lion may not come to mind first when thinking of Uganda, but Kidepo Valley is a different beast – literally – from the rainforest mountains of Mgahinga and Bwindi. Kidepo is off Uganda’s beaten track and if you’re willing to make the journey, you’ll be rewarded with thrilling game drive experiences. Visiting during the dry season is sure to yield remarkable sightings, as both the Kideopo and Narus rivers disappear completely. Animals have no choice but to gather around remaining pools of water, sometimes migrating long distances for a cool drink.

As one of the most remote and least-developed national parks in the country, Kidepo’s lodges are ultra-private and deliver top-notch service. Spend your days in an open-top safari vehicle before sundowners round the campfire, and be sure to make time for a visit to one of the small villages that still fringe the park. You’ll meet members of the agro-pastoral Karamojong community whose culture and traditions are still evident in the region.
  • Beautiful grassland landscape with a mountain backdrop.
  • Remote and minimally developed.
  • Exclusive lodges.
  • Thrilling game drives with opportunities to see big cats.
  • Cultural connections with Karamojong communities.
