4 days Kidepo valley Road Safari Uganda

4 days Kidepo valley Road Safari, the National Park ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses. It is a semi arid area, situated in the northeastern corner of Uganda in Kaabong district, and totals up to 1442 km 2 of gazetted grassland. The park receives only one rainy season per year (April-September) and the rain in this season is usually light. There are two rivers in the park and both rivers are seasonal, and usually disappear in the dry season. During the dry season, water can only be found in rare wetlands and muddy pools along the Narus valley near Apoka and that’s the reason why, wildlife is centered in this area.

And this makes Apoka the park’s prime game viewing location in Kidepo. Kidepo can be accessed by road or flying using the local airlines operating within the country. Travelling by road to Kidepo usually takes up to 13 hours of driving and requires constant stop over’s to stretch the travelers muscles, while the flight from Entebbe airport to Kidepo only takes one and half hours.
