Highlights and main attractions of Kidepo National Park
One of the continent’s great wildernesses, Kidepo National Park is set deep in the north of the country in a delightfully remote area of savannah landscape which stretches as far as the eye can see, with a distant outline of mountain ranges. Contrasting heavily with the luscious bamboo and swamp forests of Bwindi, this mainly semi-arid park is a great place to enjoy typical African game viewing in Uganda and may be combined with other destinations and parks for a truly varied itinerary.
Ornithologists will find in Kidepo an area of real interest, as there are over 475 recorded species, a total second only to Queen Elizabeth National Park. Rare birds to be seen here include the black-breasted barbet and Karamoja apallis.
