All Year Round



This 3 Days Kidepo Valley National Park Wildlife Safari Tour takes you to the Least Visited but most spectacular and Beautiful National Park in Uganda. It is located in Kaabong District, in the North Eastern Corner of Uganda between Borders with South Sudan and Kenya. It is approximately 700Km by Road Northeast of Kampala.

Kidepo Valley National Park is one of Uganda’s most spectacular, beautiful, remotest and least visited National park but it is where all the big five can be viewed apart from the Rhinos that were Extinct, expect to view many bird species including Ostriches, Karamoja Apalis, Jackson’s hornbill, Purple grenadier, Pygmy falcon, Red-throated bee-eater, Rufous chatterer, White-bellied go-away bird, White-eyed kestrel, Golden pipit,  Fox kestrel, D’Arnaud’s barbet,  Chestnut weaver, Carmine bee-eater, Black-breasted Barbet, Abyssinian scimitar bill, Abyssinian roller and totals up to 1442km2 of gazetted grassland

The park receives only one rainy season per year (April-September) and the rain in this season is usually light. There are two rivers in the park and both rivers are seasonal, and usually disappear in the dry season. During the dry season, water can only be found in rare wetlands and muddy pools along the Narus valley near Apoka and that’s the reason why wildlife is centred in this area. And this makes Apoka the park’s prime game viewing location in Kidepo National Park.

Kidepo Valley National Park can be accessed by road or flying using the local airlines operating within the country. Travelling by road to Kidepo usually takes up to 13 hours of driving and requires constant stopovers to stretch your muscles but it’s really worth it, while the flight from Entebbe airport to Kidepo only takes Two hours.
