Kidepo Valley National Park ranks as one of Africa’s best parks for an authentic African safari experience. It lies in the northeastern corner of Uganda, far off the busy tourist circuit. The remoteness that hinders easy access to it has enabled it to maintain an unadulterated wilderness that protects plenty of wildlife, including many that cannot be found in other national parks in Uganda, most notably the Cheetah and Ostrich. The driving distance from Kampala to Kidepo is 520 km (320 mi), and that is more than 11 hours of driving. That would be so long and tiresome a journey! We, therefore, break it down with sleepover in Kitgum after covering about two-thirds of the journey from Kampala, and also after the safaris in Kidepo. Between Kampala and Kitgum, you will visit the Ziwa Rhino and Wildlife Sanctuary with en-route lunch in Masindi.
