Kidepo National Park – Uganda
A week by helicopter in Uganda
First stop: 2 nights in Kidepo National Park, located in the north-eastern most corner of this most wonderful country in eastern Africa.
From the base of Apoka Lodge, a Wildplaces Africa property, we explored the savannah plains – a 1,440km2 wilderness with two river systems (Kidepo and Narus), surrounded on all sides by distant hills and mountains, and with a rich diversity of wildlife and birdlife.
The scenery alone is spectacular, yet its remoteness (Uganda’s least visited park), density of buffalo, herds of giraffe and elephant, the iconic sausage trees and the vast borassus palm forests, all add to the appeal.
