Tucked away in a far corner of northeast Uganda, Kidepo National Park is one of the most remote reserves in Africa. Dominated by a breath taking savannah and mountain landscape, the park supports diverse and abundant wildlife.
Kidepo National Park is easily one of Uganda’s most beautiful parks. Spread across rocky valleys, the park is covered in sweeping savannah and enclosed by a series of mountains that rise in the distance. Accessible only by light aircraft, this is the ideal destination for those looking for an authentic safari experience in a raw African wilderness.
As well as large numbers of elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion and hyena, Kidepo offers encounters with a handful of unique wildlife species exclusive to this part of Uganda. Be on the lookout for bat-eared foxes, caracal, wild dog and aardwolves. The park’s wetlands attract over 440 species of bird, including nearly 60 birds of prey.
Bush walks are available in addition to traditional game drives and are a great way to explore the park. Those more active can even hike up the surrounding mountains and be rewarded with epic views. The remoteness of Kidepo results in few visitors, meaning you are likely to have the park all to yourself!
Whether you’re a seasoned safari-goer and looking for something different or you just want to track wildlife away from the crowds, Kidepo is a well worth a visit. Get in touch with us today to start putting together your tailor-made trip to Uganda.
