Overview

We regard Kidepo and Bwindi as the two stand out national parks in Uganda, and two of the best in the whole of Africa. But the problem is that they are at complete opposite ends of the country, and driving between them would take over 24 hours. By flying you eliminate this problem and get to experience the best Uganda has to offer in the utmost luxury.

Your flight to Kidepo leaves around midday and takes a little over two hours, though this sometimes varies. You should arrive at your lodge just in time to go out on a nature walk to see animal tracks and take in your magnificent surroundings. The lodge that you are staying at is one of the finest in Uganda and maybe even the whole of Africa. It offers excellent, uninterrupted views of the park and game is often seen wandering around the lodge. Sometimes you can see just as much game sat in the restaurant as you can out on a game drive.

Day 3: Game Drives

Kidepo is known as one of Africa’s last remaining wildernesses and was recently voted in the top three national parks in the whole of Africa, and it’s easy to see why. It combines unbelievable landscapes with a wide variety of big game, including three big cat species; lions, leopards and cheetahs. Also because of its remoteness, you often almost have the park to yourself. In the morning you will go out on a game drive at sunrise which is the best time to see the animals. In the afternoon you will take the drive to the valley itself, which offers excellent views and is the only place you can see an ostrich in the whole of Uganda.
