Kidepo Valley National park is managed by Uganda Wildlife Authority, Located in the semi-arid valleys in the Karamoja region in northeast Uganda and gazetted as a game reserve in 1958 and later became a national park in 1962. Kidepo Valley national park is the most wild of all the national parks in Uganda with breath taking savannah landscapes and is one of the less visited national parks in Uganda. The availability of over 75 species of mammals and over 470 species of birds in the park is partly why it is ranked among the best national parks in Africa.
On guided game drives, you will see many elephants, giraffes, buffalos, lions, baboons, and a variety of antelopes, warthogs, jackals and countless savannah birds. It is the only national park in Uganda where you can see cheetahs and with the largest population of buffaloes.
