Kidepo Savannah Lodge Game Viewing and Activities
The Narus Valley region in Kidepo Valley National Park has an excellent network of roads that explore the magnificent savannah and its abundance of wild inhabitants. Among the diverse population of wildlife, there are some 30 species that are not known to occur in any other Ugandan park, signifying the unique value of this secluded wilderness in the north of the country. Game drives bring up-close sightings with lion, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, leopard, and many others, while guided bush walks and hikes in the Lamoj Mountains or along the sandy Kidepo River valley bring guests in touch with nature. Take a full-day venture to visit the Ik tribe and get a glimpse into their traditional life, which comes packed with insightful cultural experiences and some of the most stunning scenery. There is even more value in visiting the Karamojong community and learning about their warrior, pastoralist way of life.
