Kidepo Valley National park is located in Kaabong District, in the north eastern corner tucked between the borders with Southern Sudan and Kenya. Its location is approximately 700km, by road, northeast of Kampala, Uganda’s capital and largest city.
The Kidepo Valley National Park is one of Uganda’s most spectacular parks that offers breathtaking savannah landscapes outlined by distant mountain ranges. Kidepo ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses with a variety of animal species some of which are found nowhere else in Uganda. Montane forest dominate the mountain ranges, while areas along the Narus River support dense Acacia Geradi forest. The seasonal Kidepo River has a white bed of white sand between the banks covered with Borassus palm forest. The Katurum kopje in the southern end provides stunning views north across the valley towards the Morungole mountain range.
