Tour Overview

Uganda’s Kidepo Valley National Park is among the finest parks in Africa; you will find rocky outcrops in the grassy plains surpassed by steep rough mountains extending from Southern Sudan and to the west as you will have a view downwards into the Turkana plains of Kenya. Very few people visit this park, but the few that visit are certainly rewarded by the splendor of this place. As many perceive the park to be ‘wild Africa’, unspoiled Kidepo Valley has an abundance of wildlife including several uncommon bird species.
