Kidepo National Park
The Kidepo Valley National Park is Uganda’s most remote conservation area, on the border with Sudan and Kenya. The park’s landscape ranges from rugged and semi-arid to subtropical savannah. In the heart of the park lies Apoka, a region of savannah where there are a series of pools and oases, which are the only permanent source of water in the park during the dry season. This source of water attracts large concentrations of game, affording excellent game viewing and photographic opportunities during a Footprints Safari.
Kidepo is home to a healthy population of lions, leopards, and hyenas. It is also the only park in Uganda which is home to cheetah, painted hunting dogs, bat-eared foxes, and the aardwolf. Kidepo has good populations of herbivores such as buffalo, hartebeest, waterbuck, bushbuck, warthog, giraffe, zebra, and elephant. Kidepo is excellent for birders with over 470 species.
Kidepo is known for its excellent walking safaris led by exceptional local guides through a diverse and interesting landscape. It is the perfect destination for travellers who are looking to explore off the beaten track.
