Kidepo Valley NP- Overview Kidepo Valley Safaris
About Kidepo Valley National Park
The Kidepo Valley is in a remote corner of the country which is rarely visited by tourists, due to the expense and difficulty in getting there. The park is a true wilderness destination for the adventurous and has excellent wildlife-viewing during the Dry season, featuring several species not encountered anywhere else in the country.
- Top wildlife-viewing in the Dry season
- Several antelope and predator species (including cheetah) that don't occur elsewhere in Uganda
- Excellent birding with many birds of prey
- Very exclusive with lots of wilderness appeal
- Very remote and expensive destination
The park has a very impressive mammals list. Twenty species of predator are resident and several don't exist in any other Ugandan park (including cheetah, and black-backed jackal). Lion and leopard also occur. Elephant, Burchell's zebra, buffalo and Rothschild's giraffe are all regularly seen, but black rhino has recently become extinct. Twelve antelope species are present – some of which don't occur anywhere else in the country.
