Kidepo Valley National Park
is an extremely remote conservation area, situated in the far north-east of Uganda, bordering onto South Sudan and north-west Kenya.

At 1,442 square kilometres is a substantial reserve of sweeping grasslands drained by seasonal rivers and backed by high granite mountains. Wildlife is surprisingly diverse, with 77 mammal species including elephants, lions and cheetahs, plus a remarkable 463 bird species.

Park headquarters, the airstrip and the main lodge are to be found on the upper reaches of the Narus River, where water can usually be found year round, making it the best place for wildlife viewing.

It usually takes a full two days to drive here from the capital, much of which is along small dirt roads, so not many people get to sign the register at the Lokumoit Gate. The vast majority of guests fly in on shared charter flights.

Note that this area has the opposite seasons to most safari areas in Eastern and Southern Africa.
