THE AFRICAN WILDERNESS
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 also the most magnificent, for Kidepo ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses. From Apoka, in the heart of the park, a savannah landscape extends far beyond the gazetted area, towards horizons outlined by distant mountain ranges. This park has been known for its tremendous attractions like mountains, animals, birds, rivers, hot springs and many more.
Our activities in this park
Travel with us and enjoy the beauty of the park. Here, game drives are always done in the two valleys that is to say’ The Narus valley which receives 890 mm, and 635 mm in the Kidepo Valley during the light rains that the park experiences in its short annual season. Animals therefore congregate more in these two valleys (more wildlife in the Narus Valley) for the bigger part of the year, and the game drives will most definitely reach these two valleys. Game drives are more enjoyable if they start in the morning at around 7:00am or late in the afternoon at 4:00pm. Our clients can anticipate seeing wildlife like the elephants, giraffes, lions, buffalos and the Burchell’s Zebras. (Let Vienna tours and travel provide you guidance, contact us in time).
