Domestic flights to Kidepo Valley National Park:  The best way to get to Kidepo Valley National Park is to book a domestic flight in advance through a tour operator or straight to Entebbe International Airports from Aero link Uganda offices, Bar Aviation or Eagle Air or Fly Uganda offices in the same place.

Travelling by plane to Kidepo Valley National Park may seem expensive, but it’s actually very cheap and the easiest way to get there. This is because Kidepo is far from Kampala, Uganda’s capital, so driving there may take a full day, which can be tiring for people who aren’t used to long trips. But travelling by road seems to be more fun because you can stop along the way to take pictures, look at beautiful scenery, viewing wonderful landscape, and learn about the countryside, which you can’t do when you fly. Flying is quick, but it’s boring until you get to the park and start doing the safari activities.

In general, Kidepo Valley National Park is a true African wilderness. It is in northeastern Uganda, in the semi-arid karamoja area. The park was made a national park in 1962. It has a size of about 1,442 square kilometres and is made up of rough grassland. The 2,750-meter-high Mount Morungole is the main feature, and the Kidepo and Narus rivers run through it. More so, Kidepo Valley is in the Kaabong district, which is about 220 kilometres by road northwest of Moroto, which is known as Uganda’s biggest city, and about 520 kilometres northeast of Kampala, which is Uganda’s capital city.

Kidepo Valley National Park is a popular place to go on safari on the Pearl of Africa. It is known as the unspoiled African desert, with an average of 86 mammal species and over 500 bird species. So, the park is made up of two beautiful places: Narus Valley and Kidepo Valley. Both are great safari places to see a wide range of animal species in the park, but Narus Valley is the best place to see the most animals because it has water. The northeastern direction is semi-arid and gets a lot of sun, so a lot of animals can be seen there when they are thirsty. Including spotted hyenas, lions, cheetah leopards, wild dogs, elephants, giraffes, zebras, African buffaloes, bar-eared foxes, and Rothschild’s giraffes, among others. Some of the birds you might see are the Northern carmine bee-eater, Jackson’s hornbill, Golden pipit, Fox Kestrel, Black-breasted barbet, Chestnut weaver, Abyssinian scrimtarbill, Abyssinian roller, White-bellied go-way bird, Rufous chatter, Ostriches, Red-ringed parakeet, and Pygmy falcon, among others.

Activities to do on visit to Kidepo Valley National Park includes;

 Game drives along Narus Valley

 The best place to go on a game drive in Kidepo is along Narus valley, where you can see giraffes, zebras, and groups of buffalo, elephants, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs, and many other kinds of animals. We suggest that you use a 4×4 car.

This is an interesting safari activity that tourists often do on their Uganda safaris to Kidepo. It can be done at any time of day around Apoka Lodge, which is the best place to see birds, especially in the morning, like ostriches, Abyssinian scrimtarbills, Fox Kestrels, Chestnut Weavers, and Pygmy Falcons.

Community walks.

This is a great safari experience because you can go on a community walk with local guides and park rangers and meet and talk to local people. You can also visit their craft shops and buy souvenirs to show your support and learn about the Karamojong culture.

 When you go mountain hiking, you can meet the IK people, who were the first people to live there. They now live permanently on Mountain Morungole.

Birding in Kidepo is also beautiful, since the park is home to more than 500 different kinds of birds that makes your safari to Kidepo valley national park massive and impressing.
