Kidepo is remote Africa the way you imagine it: the jagged hills, the golden grasses, and the best game viewing in Uganda. Apoka has 10 expansive rooms with endless views.
Located in Uganda’s far northeast, the park boundaries are close to the borders with both Kenya and South Sudan.
Kidepo’s 1442km2 park offers sweeping savannahs unlike anywhere else in the country, with a rugged mountainous backdrop. Much of the game-rich plains become parched during dry season and are home to a healthy lion population along with elephant , buffalo, Rothchild giraffe, Kob and both species of kudu. There are also over 470 bird species (60 found nowhere else in Uganda).
We’d recommend three nights in this remote park.
The logistics of reaching Kidepo (2 hours flight from Entebbe) and its turbulent past have put many tourists off the area. But speak to anyone who has actually visited Kidepo and you will hear consistently high praise for its beauty and great game viewing.
