Abacus African Team took time off and visited Kidepo Valley National Park and it was one of our favorite activities we did in 2015. It is a bit of a drive to get there, but so worth it.

The scenery is absolutely mind blowing but even more amazing is the fact that it is still relatively unvisited so you literally feel like you have the park to yourself. We were there in high season (July/August) and across two game drives we only saw one other vehicle. The quantity of animal sightings was not even in the same ballpark as Murchison Falls, but when we did see them, the combination of the animals, scenery and perfect lighting made the quality of the experiences unreal every time, almost magical. I highly recommend doing a game drive later in the day as the lighting of the sun setting was phenomenal and really brought out the true beauty of Kidepo. We enjoyed this game drive far more than our morning one. The entire experience at Kidepo is the whole package and you really can't beat it!

Also, Kidepo valley National Park is the only park in Uganda that you find the big five on your game drive. Its the most beautiful park I have been to.
