The Best Routes to Kidepo Valley Park in the Karamoja Region of Uganda
Getting to Kidepo Valley National Park by Air or By Vehicle
Getting to Kidepo Valley National Park takes a bit more effort but is well worth it. The Park’s remote location in the Karamoja region of northeastern Uganda is why few tourists come here.
The interest in the Park has increased in recent years due to various awards, articles in multiple publications, and CNN-Travel calling it the third-best Park in all of Africa. Though in the news, the Park remains one of the few parks without crowds and off-the-beaten tourist paths.
Those that come here find this one of the most amazing Savannah Parks they have ever visited. It is an Africa that used to, but it still exists in KIdepo Valley Park. An Africa that reminds you of the writings of Karen Blixen or Ernest Hemingway. A rugged scenic wonder filled with an abundance of Game and the largest Buffalo Herds in all of Africa.
Additionally, the Karamojong People pastoralists and warriors see cattle as their God-given right. A visit to one of their Mayattas is an insight into their culture and ways.
