5-Day Rhinos and Kidepo Safari
Day 1: Drive to Gulu with Rhino tracking stopover
Today our safari guide will pick you very early from your accommodation for the drive to northern Uganda. On your way, you will stop at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. This is the only place in Uganda where you get to walk with these horned friends. After rhino tracking, continue to Gulu City. You will cross the Nile River at Karuma with the spectacular Karuma Falls.
Day 2: Drive to Kidepo Valley National Park
After an early breakfast, start your journey to Kidepo Valley National Park. The park lies in the rugged, semi-arid valleys and wilderness of northeastern Uganda. Gazetted as a national park in 1962, it has a profusion of big game and hosts over 77 mammal species as well as around 475 bird species. Kidepo is Uganda’s most isolated national park – a true wilderness.
Day 3: A Walk and Drive into the Wilderness
Set out on a game drive to meet park residents like the lions, huge buffalo herds, elephants, zebras, giraffes, and if it is your day the shy leopards and cheetahs. The park also boasts of birds like ostrich, and kori bustard. If lucky, you may even find the resident lion kings and queens on the Lion Rock looking out over the savannah. You will be probably the only humans for miles around as far as the eyes can see.
In the afternoon, dance to the beat of Karimojong drums. The Karamojong are much like the Masaai in lifestyle, dress, culture and stature.
Day 4: Transfer to Kampala
Today is the last day of our adventure. Set off early after breakfast hit the road to Kampala. Enjoy your morning travel and the mini game drive as you drive out of one of Africa’s wildest national park. Leave only footprints from your safari walk, but take all those precious forever memories.
