Stay in an African Style Banda inside of Kidepo Valley Park


Kidepo Valley Park , remote and unvisited and there are not many lodging choices in the park.  Apoka Rest Camp inside of Kidepo Valley Park is a budget facility of with 16 African Style Bandas (round African style Huts with thatched roofs) that are self-contained with shower. The water is normally warm enough since you are in one of Uganda’s more arid regions.


Apoka Rest Camp inside of Kidepo Valley Park gives you good value for your money, more than most other places of its kind.  It is run and managed by the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA). To stay here takes a bit more planning but the park and its rugged beauty and wildlife that you find here outweighs the extra Effort needed to pack in your food the and supplies that you might need.

If you are on a Kidepo Valley Park Safari with Kabiza Wilderness Safaris, we suggest that you buy food supplies in Kampala. Gulu or Kitgum, if we are taking you on a safari that takes the Eastern Route than the best place to stock up on things would be Mbale.  We will guide you through the process and your tour- guide will help you in buying the right things including vegetables and fruit.

There is some refrigeration at the camp and you can bring in frozen meat. Eggs, bread, packaged soups are available in markets and you can create a stew from vegetable to beef or chicken.  If you are climbing Mount Morungole to visit the Ik People we suggest that you bring a hardy lunch of one kind or another. A cook is there to prepare what you want and a propane gas cooker is used for a minimal charge figured into your safari price

The round bandas are basic, but clean and you sleep well at night in what is the remote wilderness in one of the most scenic parks in East Africa.  You will use a kerosene oil lamp at night, if you are a reader- have a reading light with you.

Apoka Rest Camp inside of Kidepo Valley Park – basic, budget lodging, more value for your money than you would get at comparable budget lodges in Uganda.
