In the northernmost corner of Uganda, bordering South Sudan and Kenya, lies the pristine wilderness of Kidepo Valley National Park. The land of the Karamajong is woven from vast plains split open by handsome rock formations. This distinctive safari delivers another side of Uganda, a reminder that if you haven’t ventured into this secluded park, you haven’t truly seen Uganda.


Safari Highlights

  • Hike to Sipi Falls
  • Game drives in Kidepo
  • Hike Lomeji Mountain
  • Learn about the culture of the Karamajong pastoralists


Day 1: Travel to Kapchorwa – Hike to Sipi Falls

A guide ushers us into our first leg of the Kidepo Safari, a drive to Kapchorwa. We check into our booked lodge in time for lunch and set out on a hike to Sipi falls for some picturesque moments. As we descend, the mountain-side is bathed in an ethereal sunset over the distant plains.

Accommodation: Lacam Lodge

Meal Plan: Half-Board

Day 2: Into the Untouched Wilderness

In the morning, we resume our journey to Kidepo Valley National park, which is perhaps the last untouched wilderness in Africa. We arrive in time for an evening game drive hoping to spot, among other wildlife, the ever-elusive, nocturnal leopard.

Accommodation: Nga’ moru Wilderness Camp

Meal Plan: Full-Board

Day 3: Among the Nomads

Our morning game drive gives us a chance to see more wildlife, foraging for food in the cool hours. With luck, we might see ostriches sauntering across the plains. After a delectable lunch at the lodge, we continue our search for the wildlife of the north, and later, seek a cultural experience in a Karamajong village. We learn how, like the untouched wilderness, the nomadic Karamajong remain mostly unsullied by the forces of modernity.

Accommodation: Nga’ moru Wilderness Camp

Meal Plan: Full-Board

Day 4: Hike to Lomeji Mountain

With plenty of refreshments and lunch in tow, we set out for a hike to Lamoji Mountain, an opportunity to peer into neighbouring South Sudan and get a magnificent aerial view of Kidepo Valley.

Accommodation: Nga’ moru Wilderness Camp

Meal Plan: Full-Board

Day 5: Return to Kampala

Today we journey back to Kampala, stopping for lunch in Gulu; Uganda’s second biggest town and a quickly growing hub of activity in Northern Uganda. This peaceful town is an enclave of history and each visit reveals another layer of the years that passed.
