It’s one of Uganda’s most spectacular parks with 1,442 sq.km and harbours scenery unsurpassed in any other park in East Africa! It lies in the rugged, semi-arid valleys of Karamoja province in Kaabong district on the far northern border with Sudan. As a result, the variety of animal species in the park is equally abundant including many which are found nowhere else in Uganda like Ostriches and Cheetah. Carnivore species unique to Kidepo and Karamoja region include the bat-eared fox, striped hyena, aardwolf, caracal, cheetah and hunting dog. Less common ungulates include the greater and lesser kudu, chandlers mountain reedbuck, klipspringer, dik dik and bright gazelle, beisa oryx and roan antelope have been severely depleted by poachers in the recent years. Among other large ungulates are elephant, burchell’s zebra, bush pig, warthog, rothschild giraffe, cape buffalo, eland, bush buck, bush duskier, defassa water buck, bohor reed buck, jackson’s hartebeest and oribi. Other wildlife includes tree climbing lions, several small cats, black-backed jackal and side-striped jackal, elephants, leopard, buffalo. Kidepo Valley is also a palace to over 475 bird species, some of East Africa’s rarest and most sought after birds such as black-breasted barbet and Karamoja apallis. Others also worth noting are verreaux’s eagle, Egyptian vulture, pygmy falcon, four species of hornbills; the red-billed, yellow-billed, jackson’s hornbill and the giant Abyssinaia ground hornbill.
