I did a guided walk and two early morning drives in Kidepo Valley National Park and was blown away! The scenery is absolutely stunning, game everywhere and (armed!) guide Simon lets you get up really close. The park lies in the remote northeastern part of Uganda and sees only 3000 visitors a year. And it’s huge: 1400 km2! I saw an abondance of animals: Elephants, Rothschild’s giraffes, lions, zebras, kampalas, bushbucks, waterbucks and waterbuffalos. There are leopards, cheetahs and hyenas in the park, but unfortunately I did not get to see them.
The 'pearl of Africa' is a dream destination for nature lovers. Beautiful volcanoes, vast savannas, great national parks, stunning waterfalls and tropical rainforests. And the most friendly people!
