Kidepo Valley National Park


We'll fly you into Kampala, where you will take a two-hour flight to the mountainous Kipedo Valley National Park in the remote north-east of Uganda. In Kipedo the game viewing is superb, with herds of elephants, zebras and waterbucks, and predators like lions, cheetahs and leopards, as well as some fantastic panoramic views to boot. During your time in Kipedo, you'll stay in the heart of the park at the tented Apoka Lodge.
