Remote but lovely

I visited Kidepo in November 2015. It was about an hour flight from Entebbe and is probably the most expensive park to visit due to its remote location.
I enjoyed the Apoka Lodge. The pool and the vistas are stunning and you really do feel like you've got the park to yourself.
In terms of quantity of wildlife, I much preferred QENP. We hardly saw any giraffe and... read more

Beautiful Park!

Visited: Aug 2015 Reviewed: Jan 19, 2016

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.

Private Paradise

Visited: Jan 2008 Reviewed: Sep 25, 2015

Perhaps the most difficult to reach of Uganda's parks, but absolutely worth the trouble. We ran the lodge here 2008, and while we (sadly) haven't been back since, the private outdoor double-wide bathtubs overlooking the savanna still fill me with happiness and relaxation just by remembering.
Slightly more crowded than it was during less secure times, you still ma... read more
