4 DAYS FLY KIDEPO

Day One: Arrival at Entebbe Airport

We pick you up at your accommodation in Kampala and take you to Entebbe airport where you will board a light aircraft that will take you on a short flight to one of the most remotest regions of Uganda. Have lunch at the Apoka lodge after you check in and find yourself up close with animals even before you go on a game drive in the late afternoon. Don’t forget a dip in the fabulous pool. Full board for your stay here

Late Afternoon Game Drive through the Narus Valley where you will sight herds of buffaloes, elephants, giraffes, zebras and hopefully some lions, leopard and the elusive cheetah. Besides that there are the many birds you might find along the way. This is a slow drive so that you do not miss anything, stopping wherever you desire to take pictures of the fabulous wildlife and birds, fauna and flora along the way.
Return to the lodge for dinner to the sights and sounds of the Kidepo Valley around you.

Day Two: Karankorog Hot Springs

Arise to a fabulous breakfast and a cup of coffee or tea while you peruse the landscape and wildlife around you in the remotest corner of Uganda and yet it is in class and style. The perfect African dream vacation.
After breakfast it is off to another exciting game drive across savanna, hills, small forests, dry river beds and always the rings of mountains around you. Animals and birds to observe, plants and trees that will amaze you as they exist in this semi-arid region of Uganda.

We are off to Karankorog Hot Springs with lots of wildlife along the way. No game drive is the same even if you took the same route twice, there is always something new to seen and found. The scenery, animals, birds will amaze you and it is best to keep the camera close at hand to get the best shots along the way.
Lunch at Apoka Lodge and then it off for an afternoon with Karamajong people for a cultural tour as to how this proud tribe that has refused most influences for change. Their love for cattle is comparable to the better known Maasai of Kenya and Tanzania. Their ways are unique to them and they are a proud warrior like people who believe that is their God given right to cattle, even cattle belonging to others. You will see how they live, how they prepare food, dance, enjoy life and what their cattle means to them.
Return to Apoka Lodge for dinner and a quiet night in the wilderness, or should one say, a night where the only music are the sounds of the African night in Kidepo Park.

Day Three: Guided nature walk

Another fabulous breakfast as you wake up to the sounds of birds you might have never heard before. Enjoy the wonderful breakfast prepared for you, a true culinary delight and of course there is the presentation.
Morning game drive-exploring this fabulous, remote park for its wildlife, its many birds and simply enjoying the experience of viewing animals so close to the vehicle. It is surely a most breath taking experience.
Lunch back at Apoka Lodge, enjoying an afternoon of relaxation along the pool or taking a guided nature walk looking for animals on foot. Dinner and a quiet night at Apoka Lodge.

Day Four: Guided birding , Return to Entebbe

The last breakfast at Apoka Lodge, something to be missed. Then a guided birding nature walk , lunch at the lodge and all good things somehow end…your return to Entebbe, but keep your camera ready for some great aerial shots along the way.

 

We return you to your lodging in Kampala.
