Is the Apoka Safari Lodge for Me?
Set deep in the Kidepo Valley National Park, Apoka Lodge blends seamlessly among the endless hills and rocky outcrops.
With only 10 guest rooms, this is intimate and remote at its best.
Kidepo is Uganda’s most isolated National Park, located in the northern reaches of the country where the light is golden, the wildlife abundant and the skies are enormous.
Elephants roam through the camp, lions perch on the nearby boulders as if posing for their close-up, and massive herds of buffalo are a part of the landscape.
Apoka Lodge is built in the traditional manner: canvas-walled rooms with high thatched roofs and big breezy windows open to the views.
All rooms feature private outdoor bathtubs – deep tubs surrounded by big boulders – looking out over the landscape.
The decor is neutral and natural: a palette of cream, stone and oatmeal allows the impressive scenery to take precedence and a massive rock-hewn pool brings respite to the hot sunny afternoons.
Guides, all from the local area, lead activities, including walks, game drives in open vehicles and interpretive visits to the local Karamong villages or the secluded homestead of the fascinating hunter-gatherer Ik people.
