On the edge of one of the most beautiful national parks in Uganda… Our latest and most remote property of Nature Lodges, Kidepo Savannah Lodge does justice to this wildlife gem which has received several international awards as one of the greatest Parks of Africa. Being just 500 Mt away from Kalokudo gate, the lodge is literally on a stone’s throw from the park. It offers unparalled vistas of the expansive Narus Valley, Mount Morungole and the distant mountain ranges which form the border with Southern Sudan. The lodge is inspired by the savannah surroundings, the grasslands, rocky outcrops, and by the karamajongo, the tribe with their typical manyattas and colorful blankets. The lodge had to blend in rather than stick out, so we opted for a choice between the more luxurious self-contained safari tents and comfortable lazy camping tents. Kidepo Savannah Lodge organizes morning and afternoon game drives of 2 to 3 hours in an open roofed extended land cruiser. A classic African safari experience along Narus valley tracking down a pride of lions, or… maybe even the odd leopard. Click here for more information.
