    Kidepo is not easy to get to. Any overland drive from greater Kampala will realistically take two days with an overnight stop somewhere, and the second day from any direction will involve hours bouncing on unpaved laterite ‘murram’ roads. Kidepo is located in what could be called Uganda’s ‘empty quarter’, where Uganda, Kenya, and South Sudan come together. Other Uganda parks offer great wildlife viewing with more tourist-friendly logistics. But only a few places we have seen in our travels – Alaska, where we were privileged to live for over a dozen years, southern Utah, Chile’s Torres de Paine – offer the ‘dawn of creation’ landscape that Kidepo offers. At Kidepo you find top class wildlife (that includes Uganda’s only resident zebra and eland) in breathtaking and silent vistas. Sunset and sunrise scenes are uniquely haunting. The game drive tracks through the park are much less traveled than those at Murchison or at Queen Elizabeth. The accommodation options rival those anywhere in East Africa. Most any African park destination will meet the expectation framed in the words “once in a lifetime”. A visit to Kidepo just may redefine your whole bucket list.

    Signposted, Between Gulu & Kitgum, Still undisturbed, and a tricky path, this attraction should be better developed as seems to be mostly unknown.

    With a bit of work this place could become a major attraction, esp. for those travelling between Kidepo Valley and Murchison Falls

    Good place in Kitgum to hang out and drink a cold beer. Friendly staff and vibrant music. Many people on Wednesday. The manager could also help you to organise some tours in the area.
