Kidepo Valley National park is Uganda most isolated national park but the few who make the long journey north thus the wild frontier region of Karamoja would agree that it is also the magnificent for Kidepo ranks among Africa's finest wilderness. From Apoka in the heart of the park, a Savannah land Scape extends far beyond the gazetted area,
forwards horizon outlined by distant mountain ranges.
During the dry season, the only permanent water in the park is found in wetlands and remnant pods in the broad Narus valley near Apoka . These seasonal, oases , combined with the open Savannah terrain , make the Narus valley the park's prime game viewing location . The park's altitude range between 914m and 2750 m above sea level. The park contains two Rivers Kidepo and Narus which disappear in the dry season, leaving just pods for wildlife. The local communities around the park include pastoral Karamajong people, similar to the Masai of Kenya and I know a hunter -gatherer tribe whose survival is threatened.
