Kidepo Valley National Park

5 Day Itinerary

Day 1: If Driving Only

Leaving Kampala early, drive eight hours to Gulu or Kitgum and overnight here.

Day 2: Arrival and Game Drive

Take a charter flight (one hour) from Kampala to Kidepo, or complete your drive from Kitgum or Gulu, and check into your accommodation.

After lunch (bring food for self-catering unless staying at Apoka Lodge), take a game drive along the Narus Valley. Keep your eyes peeled for buffalo, giraffes, zebras, elands, oribis and elephants – and even the odd jackal. Your guide may even be able to locate lions, sunbathing atop rocks.

Day 3: Game Drive to hot springs and nature walk/ Narus valley tour

Depart on a morning game drive to the hot springs via the palm tree lined Kidepo River. Search for ostriches and leopard tortoises along the way. After a packed lunch, stretch your legs during a guided walk through the park.

Day 4: Cultural Tour

Visit the Lorokul Cultural Group and explore the fascinating, ancient culture of the Karamojong. Visit traditional homesteads, sample local dishes and hear stories of the folklore of this remote tribe.

Day 5 Departure

Fly or drive back to Kampala, or drive onwards to Mount Elgon National Park to continue your Ugandan adventure.
