Kidepo Valley National Park in the far north of Uganda is one of Africa’s hidden gems and is constantly named one of its most beautiful parks. Remote and wild, nothing prepares you for the beauty of this western edge of the Great Rift Valley with sweeping African plains lined by mountains and volcano peaks.
Kidepo’s mammal list of over 80 species includes 28 that are found in no other Ugandan National park such as Bat-eared Fox, Carcal, Cheetah and Klipspringer. Unfortunately, Kidepo suffered the same fate as many other Ugandan parks during the Amin era and is still recovering from years of poaching that left game herds depleted. Many large mammals however have shown a remarkable recovery and there are now healthy population of elephant, zebra, buffalo, Bohor reedbuck, waterbuck and kongoni. Predators are plentiful and spotted hyena, leopard and lion are frequently seen.
