3 Days Kidepo National Park Safari

 

Safari Itinerary 

 

Kidepo Valley National park is located in Kaabong District, in the northeastern corner of Uganda. The park is located approximately 220 kilometres (140 mi), by road northwest of Moroto, the largest town in the sub-region. Its location is approximately 520km, by road, northeast of Kampala, Uganda’s capital and largest city.

The Kidepo Valley National Park is one of Uganda’s most spectacular parks. Tucked into the corner of Uganda’s border with Sudan and Kenya, the park offers breathtaking Savannah landscapes, which creates a rugged horizon. As a result, the variety of animal species in the park is equally abundant including many which are found nowhere else in Uganda. Mountain forest dominates some of the high places, while areas along the Lorupei River support dense Acacia Geradi forest. The flora and fauna of the park are more typical of Kenya than the rest of Uganda. The landscape throughout the park is studded with small hills, rocky outcrops and Inselbergs from which one can obtain stunning views in all directions.
