Kidepo

 

Kidepo Valley National Park is located in northeast Uganda, near the border with Kenya and South Sudan.

The park is mostly rugged savannah, dominated by 9,020 ft (2,750 m) Mount Morungole. It is also the home to the valley systems of the Kidepo and Narus Rivers.

The park includes extensive herds of savanna animals (lions, leopards, giraffes, etc), as well as unusual predator species such as the aardwolf, bat-eared fox, caracal, cheetah, hunting dog, and striped hyena.

Game viewing is possible by vehicle on dirt roads that crisscross the southern and western parts of the park. A few trunk roads are improved with murram and are passable in all weather.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
