Safari Overview

This 7-Day Classic Kidepo safari will indeed take you “off-the-beaten-tracks” of Northern and North-Eastern Uganda. Along the eastern route, you will have the chance to enjoy the diverse flora and fauna traveling through forests, savannah, and bushland. You will visit the least visited wildlife reserves and cultural communities.

Besides exploring nature’s wonders and the Big Five, you will deep dive into various cultural and community encounters – from spending a night with shepherds of the Karamojong tribe around the fire, to visiting the biggest Manyatta Village in Africa, and dancing with the Ik in Kidepo Valley National Park.

On our way back, we will have a stopover at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary to trek the rare white rhinos.
