Day 1 - Arrival in Entebbe

On day one of your exciting all exclusive safari, you will be collected at the airport and taken to your accommodation. The next day, a further airport transfer will be arranged to take you on a domestic scheduled charter flight to Kidepo Valley National Park far in the north-east of Uganda. The aircraft in use for such flights, such as the Cessna Caravan or Dehavilland Twin Otter, have been specifically built for STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) conditions often found in up-country national parks and rural Africa in general. Your adventure safari to the far corners of magical Uganda is an exciting experience and memorable event to cherish forever.

Day 2 - Entebbe to Kidepo Valley National Park

Today, you will take a domestic flight to the famous Kidepo Valley National Park in the northeastern border region between Uganda, Kenya and South Sudan. The Kidepo Valley National Park has consistently been rated as one of the best national parks in Africa due to its remote wild charm and open lightly wooded savannahs, teeming with game. One of the highlights this park has to offer is the largest group of buffalos in Africa counting more than 2.000 animals.

Day 3 - Kidepo Valley National Park

Further game drives and bush walks in one of the most spectacular national parks, famous for its wide open landscapes, dotted with rocky ridges and rolling grasslands. The park shares its name with the famous Kidepo and Narus valleys that stretch into South Sudan and contain one of the most exciting diversity of wildlife of any national park in Uganda, including the greater and lesser Kudu and Eland. Carnivores include the lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena and black-backed and side-striped jackals. Other large species regularly seen wandering into the park sometimes from as far as South Sudan are elephant, Burchell’s zebra, Rothschild’s giraffe, Cape buffalo and Jackson’s hartebeest. KVNP is second only to Queen Elizabeth National Park when it comes to its amazing variety of bird life, with a total of 475 species identified to date, including 56 species of birds of prey. Driving north to the hot springs also gives you the opportunity to see ostriches.

Day 4 - Kidepo Valley National Park

The easy option today is a visit to the largest Manyatta in East Africa near Kotido. A Manyatta is a Karamajong village that has grown into a ‘city’; built entirely from local materials and in the traditional style. A walk through the labyrinths of this very large village gives you the chance to experience Karamajong and their way of life up close.

Optional for extra cost - After breakfast, you depart on a once in a lifetime visit to the remote region of the IK People. The Ik People live in the Morungole Mountains on the border with Kenya and number only around 10,000. A day with the Ik People on Morungole Mountain offers you rare cultural insights, complemented by some of the most stunning scenery Uganda has to offer. Getting to the Ik villages is however no easy feat and requires an all-day venture up and down the steep mountains with guides who speaks the language. You have to be physically fit to climb the mountains.

Day 5 - Kidepo Valley National Park to Entebbe

Time to say goodbye to the Kidepo Valley National Park. A scheduled charter flight will take you back from the KVNP to Entebbe. The flight leaves at around 2 pm in the afternoon and takes 2 hours to reach Entebbe International Airport. From there you will be collected by the Protea Hotel airport shuttle.

Day 6 - Departure from Entebbe

Transfer to the airport and departure from Entebbe International Airport.
