Kidepo Valley National park

Kidepo Valley National Park: lies in the rugged, semi-arid valleys between Uganda’s borders with Sudan and Kenya, some 700km from Kampala. Gazetted as a national park in 1962, it has a profusion of big game and hosts over 77 mammal species as well as around 475 bird species making it second to Queen Elizabeth National Park as the best place to have a Bird Watching Tour. Kidepo is Uganda’s most isolated national park, but the few who make the long journey north region of Karamoja would agree that it is also the most magnificent park. Kidepo also 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. During the dry season, the only permanent water in the park is found in wetlands and remnant pools in the broad Narus Valley near Apoka. These seasonal oases, combined with the open, savannah terrain, make the Narus Valley the park’s prime game viewing location.
