It’s located in Apoka and it’s in a form of a lodge. Each person is supposed to pay 90$ and above. When you close your eyes and think of Africa, the landscape you imagine – the jagged hills, the golden grasses, the plains dotted with wildlife, the soft glowing light – is likely to be Kidepo. This is Uganda’s most remote park, far away from city life.
Kidepo has been classified as semi-desert – but this classification can be very misleading. Expansive grassy plains are dotted with big rocky outcrops and flanked by steep jagged mountains. In the distance to the north, perfect triangular conical mountains rise out of Sudanese soil, to the east is the sudden drop of the Great Rift – we are at the western edge of this rift, looking down into Kenya’s Turkana country. Dry river beds zig zag across the park, fringed with Borassus and sausage trees. Tracts of forest also feature in this park; many have yet to be explored.
