Day 1: Fly from Entebbe to Kidepo Valley NP

We begin our 4 Day Luxury Fly Kidepo Safari with a pick-up from your hotel in Kampala or Entebbe to Entebbe International Airport for your 2-hours flight to Kidepo – a pleasant flight over the varied Ugandan landscape – seeing the Pearl of Africa from above – simply a delightful treat and some great photo opportunities for you.

Land at Kidepo Valley Airstrip and transfer to the nearby Apoka Safari Lodge that is a real oasis in the midst of this rugged and untamed landscape of Kidepo Park where you receive a warm welcome and are led to your luxurious room where no effort has been spared and thought off to make you most comfortable.  There is a swimming pool for you take a dip, a veranda to sit and enjoy the vast wilderness of the unique Kidepo Valley – a destination that many would like to visit but don’t due to the time or cost it takes to get here.

Lunchtime at Apoka Lodge and you are served a culinary treat in the Ugandan Wild of Kidepo Valley National Park that will delight your senses and palate.  Even while you have lunch or sit on your veranda you will be able to enjoy some the abundant wildlife found at this most unusual, one of a kind Park in East Africa bordered by South-Sudan and Kenya – a park that abounds with scenic wonders and prolific wildlife, some of which is not found elsewhere in Uganda.

Relax after lunch, drinking in all the splendor of nature, the stillness of the wild only broken by the sound of an animal near or far – welcome to Kidepo Valley National Park.

Late Afternoon Game Drive through the Narus Valley where you will see herds of buffaloes, elephants, giraffes, zebras and hopefully some lions, leopard and the elusive cheetah.  Besides there are the many birds you might find along the way.  This is a slow drive so that you do not miss anything, stopping wherever you wish to take pictures of the fabulous wildlife and birds, fauna and flora along the way.

One of the things that you will readily see that one thing that makes this park so very different is that there are no other vehicles, it is African wildlife without the crowds.  Simply amazing – in this remote and unvisited part of Uganda’s Wild.

Enjoy the sunset and a delightful dinner at Apoka Safari Lodge in the heart of Kidepo Valley National Park surrounded only by the sounds of the African Wild in the Bush.  There is nothing like going to sleep with the sounds of a roaring lion in the distance and awakening to the trumpeting of an elephant.
