Kidepo valley national park-Wildlife Safaris
Visit Kidepo Valley National Park for a wildlife safari with Self Drive Kenya. We offer sturdy 4×4 rental Toyota land cruisers and Toyota Rav4s. However, our Land cruisers on offer can be rented with or without rooftop tents, while others have pop up roofs. Land cruisers with pop up roofs are widely used for game viewing i.e game drives in National Parks.
Kidepo Valley national Park lies in the rugged and semi-arid valleys between Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
The park has a true wilderness feel and is a great destination for the adventurous travelers. It has excellent wildlife viewing during the dry season. It features several species not encountered anywhere else in the country.
The park has 20 species of predator like cheetah which is only found in this national park, black backed jackal, leopard and lions plus bird species including lilac breasted roller, ostrich, and secretary bird among others.
The two valleys Narus valley and Kidepo valley on either side of predominantly mountainous terrain dominate the park.
The best time to visit are the dry seasons for catching the wildlife. An advantage of exploring the Kidepo in the wet season that the dust and the heat tend to be washed away and birding is better.
The activities include game drives, cultural experience of the Karimojong community which is the closest to the park and Ik community which has a unique cultural set up plus the guided nature walks that give the tourist a chance to get closer to the wild life.
