THE BEAUTY OF KIDEPO VALLEY NATIONAL PARK

 

4 Days Trip to Kidepo Valley

Kidepo Valley National park that is located north east of Uganda, we managed to have a great time in the wilderness where we saw herds of elephants, buffalos, antelopes, zebras, elands, birds and the illusive cheetahs in the Narus valley which is the most popular part of viewing wildlife while in this great wilderness.

our trip was 4 days and it is one of the short trips a tourist can do if they are interested in close up wildlife viewing and photography.

The park is located 570 km north or Kampala, the capital of Uganda and travelers have a chance to either fly or drive by road to this iconic beautiful wildlife reserve.

On our trip, we decided to go by road so that we can experience the beauty of the landscapes en-route, appreciate the people and have a wide range of photography stops.

Day 1:

The trip took us 8 hours driving time with 2 hours of breaks en-route for lunch and landscape photography

We arrived at our hotel in the evening ad relaxed.

Day 2:

In the morning we packed our breakfast and went out for a full day safari experience in search of the amazing wildlife. Our eyes and lens were welcomed by herds of elephants, zebras, buffalos, warthogs, antelopes and much more wildlife.

our amazing bush breakfast was delicious and we continued with our game drive where we managed to spot the illusive cheetah lying lazy on a dead tree branch.

this gave us a great photo moment with the cheetah and decided to go have lunch and relax on the balcony of our beautiful safari tents at the Kidepo Savannah Lodge as we enjoyed the wide open scenery.

We enjoyed an evening sunset safari where we managed to spot a pride of 5 lions just beneath the rock kopjes of Kidepo and took some drinks on sunset.

Our nights were beautiful because the temperatures were normal enough and we also listened to great sounds from hyenas, roars from lions, crickets singing through the night and a bright sky filled with bright stars and half moon.

Day 3:

We had a half day morning safari on Day 3 and visited the Karamajong villages where we learnt about the culture of the people and drove back spending our night in Gulu city.

This helped us reduce on the driving time and enjoy a more relaxed drive back home on day 4.

Day 4:

En-route on the last day, we did a walking safari at the Ziwa Rhino sanctuary which is the only place in Uganda where you can see the white rhinos at close range.

With great memories and satisfied souls from our trip, we drove back home and we can not wait to go back and spend more days in the Kidepo Valley National Park.

Best times to travel: November to May, the other months are wet and your exploration may be hindered by the rains because of the rivers that cut off park accessibility temporarily for a few hours. http://www.kidepovalleynationalpark.com
