Kidepo is a huge park. Although it said to be only the second in terms of size, the animals are more scattered than in Murchison. As a result, it is a little bit more difficult to see animals. Go and check the big rocks early in the morning or late in the evening to see if you can see any lions sitting on them. We were unlucky but I suggest that you stay more than one day to increase your chances. The best/fastest way to get there is through the Gulu/Kitgum road, but it is still a very long way from Kampala. For us it was more a break before discovering Karamoja.

Remote, less frequented - but what a pleasure this park was! The spectacular landscapes was the first thing to amaze me! Absolutely stunning - especially on sunset and sunrise! Wildlife: 20 mammals and 54 species of birds in 1.5 days - I suppose I had a ball of a time! The remote location also results in your viewing of certain species which are not found elsewhere in Uganda e.g. Cheetahs and Ostriches (both of which are difficult to spot in any case). The only constraint of visiting this park is its remote and difficult location. Would take a full day (or two with a break) to reach this location. With the major attractions of Uganda (i.e. Gorilla and Chimpanzee tracking) - more to the south, including Kidepo in your itinerary with a limited time would be a challenge! Special points: See if you can stay in the middle of the park in Apoka.- right in the middle of the productive Narus Valley. But then lodges on the periphery are equally good. Idi Amin had a guest house here in the middle of the park. Now privatised - maybe worth a casual visit - just to understand how paranoid this man was! Note: While the productivity of wildlife sightings cannot be compared to the mara / serengeti, note that this place is only recovering from years of strife and poaching. The absence of crowds more than makes up for it!

Despite the high grass due to the rainy season we were enjoying some wildlife. The high gras has its special charme, looked like wheatfields. Staying at the campsite was good, the ranger kept the lions away at night by snoring really hard:-)) when the watertank was empty it got refilled within a day. We loved it to not meeting a lot of folks. We also treated us by staying in nga moru lodge. The place itself is situated wonderfully right beside the park. Food was of high quality and served exactly on time. Yet, the service and the place itself do not really reflect what you see on the pics (anymore?). The USD 165 (full board)appeared to us a bit overprized at this point in time. Kidepo is great for all who love to go a little bit off the main roads and away from crowds. Getting there already is an adventure in itself and might become really hard when the rain is pouring down. The same applies to most of the tracks within the park.

Gorgeous landscape, an abundance of buffalo, bushbacks, elephants and some giraffes. Very helpful guide. Good overall experience (even though my group, unfortunately, did not manage to see any lions)
