Four Day Safari to Kidepo and Rhino Sanctuary
Join us for this four day safari to Kidepo Valley National Park and the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. Prices are $805 per person.
Day 1: Travel to Kidepo Valley National Park
Today you drive to Kidepo National Park (nominated as one of Africa’s leading parks in 2013 by the World Travel Awards). The Park lies in the rugged, semi-arid valleys between Uganda’s borders with Sudan and Kenya. Established as a national park in 1962, it has an abundance of big game and hosts over 77 mammal species as well as around 475 bird species. The park’s altitude ranges between 914 - 2,750 meters above sea level. The park contains two rivers - Kidepo and Narus - which disappear in the dry season, leaving just pools for the wildlife. We'll do an afternoon game drive.
Day 2: Game Drives Along the Kidepo River
Today is a game drive; for as long as you wish, a park ranger will help you spot the lions that may be sitting on the valley’s various rocks. Other wildlife includes elephants, leopards, bush duiker, jackal, bushbuck, bush pig, ostrich, buffalo and much more in the wild Narus Valley. After lunch, you go for an afternoon game drive through the hot springs via the palm tree lined Kidepo River. Search for ostriches and leopard tortoises along the way.
Day 3: Cultural Tour & Travel to Gulu
After breakfast today you will visit the cultural groups and explore the fascinating, ancient culture of the Karimojong people. Visit traditional homesteads to share experiences with the Karimojong culture, sample local dishes and hear stories of the folklore of this remote tribe. Travel this afternoon to Gulu and relax at the hotel.
Day 4: Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary
Have a relaxed breakfast and prepare for your journey to the rhinoceros sanctuary in Nakasongola. Have lunch on your arrival and start the walk with the local guide to view the animals in the wild. Ziwa Rhino and Wildlife Ranch located in Nakasongola district is the proud home of the only wild rhinos in Uganda.
