The park is located in the far north eastern part of Uganda just close to the border with South Sudan. Being so distant from Kampala – Uganda’s capital at about 569km by road, the park has remained less visited as many tourists on Uganda safaris opt for a visit to the nearby parks.

This tour is private and can be booked by an individual or group. This means you have your tour as requested.

Estimated at about USD 835 per person for 2 people sharing on a mid range accommodation, this trip can be undertaken any time of the year. This safari to Kidepo is most recommended to be undertaken during the dry season in the months of September to March.
