The park consists of the two major valley systems of the Kidepo and Narus Rivers. Most of the park is open tree savannah.

Because of differences in rainfall in the Kidepo basin, vegetation and animal populations vary between the two valleys. 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. It is said to be Uganda’s most isolated national park, but the few who make the long journey north through Karamoja would agree that it is also the most magnificent, for Kidepo ranks among Africa’s finest wildernesses. Arrive later at your lodge for an overnight.
