The 3 Days Uganda Wildlife tour take you to Kidepo Valley National Park which  is one of the most beauties Uganda has to offer though it’s the least visited park  it is where all 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 many more situated in the northeastern corner of Uganda in Kaabong district, 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 centered in this area. And this makes Apoka the park’s prime game viewing location in Kidepo National Park. Kidepo 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 stop over’s to stretch the travelers muscles but it’s really worth it, while the flight from Entebbe airport to Kidepo only takes Two  hours.
