Get to Know Kidepo Valley National Park
Off the beaten track in the far north of Uganda, Kidepo is a wilderness that’s rich in big game and bird species
Kidepo Valley National Park is Uganda’s most isolated national park, but the few who make the long journey north through the wild frontier region of Karamoja agree that it’s also the most magnificent, for Kidepo ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses.
It lies in the rough, semi arid valleys between Uganda’s borders with Sudan and Kenya, some 700 kilometres from Kampala. Proclaimed as a national park in 1962, it has an abundance of big game, including 77 mammal species, and some 475 bird species.
