Kidepo Valley National Park

With great savanna landscapes and mountains rising up in the background, the remote Kidepo Valley NP is a true gem of Uganda's nature.

The park spans 1,442 km2 and ranges from 900 to 2.750 m in altitude. Because of its remote location on the border with South Sudan, Kidepo Valley is possibly the only national park left on the whole continent where you can almost have the park to yourself (average of six visitors per day).

 

Game viewing is possible by vehicle on dirt roads that crisscross the southern and western parts of the park. A few trunk roads are improved with murram and are passable in all weather.

Kidepo is also home to almost all of the animal species present in the Uganda National Parks system, including lion, giraffe, elephant, buffalo, leopard, ostrich and cheetah.

Kidepo Valley N.P. was recently rated 3rd-best National Park in Africa by CNN.
