KIDEPO VALLEY NATIONAL PARK
Kidepo Valley National Park is remote Park in Uganda. Although it is less travelled than other Ugandan National Parks, it offers truly unique experiences. At Kidepo, it is a lot easier to spot rare predators like the striped hyena, the hunting dog, the bat-eared fox, the cheetah, the caracal, and the aardwolf.
Unlike other parks like Bwindi, Kidepo’s landscape is open tree savanna. It is not as heavily forested as the other parks. Lions and jackals live there too.
There are plenty of primates at Kidepo, but the Kavirondo bush baby stands out among them all for it is only found here. 465 different types of birds live here, making it yet another excellent site for bird watchers.
Kidepo is in a remote area which means that the roads are not as good as the other roads in Uganda. It is close to the border of Uganda and South Sudan. Visitors are not allowed to cross into South Sudan. Use a 4 wheel drive car and travel beware of mud. Never travel during the rainy season without an experienced local driver.
Elephants, antelopes and dozens of other grazers live in Kidepo Valley National Park.
