Kidepo Valley National park is located in the north- Eastern part of Uganda, 700km from Kampala and it is tucked between the borders of Uganda, Kenya and Sudan. It covers an area of 1,442 sq km. It lies in the rugged, semi-arid valleys of Karamoja province, and those that make the long journey north would agree that it is the most magnificent park . The park harbours scenery unsurpassed in any other park of East Africa as well as great numbers of fauna and floral species. The vegetation can best be described as open tree Savannah which varies much in structure and composition. Mountain forest dominates some of the high places, while areas along the Lorupei River support dense Acacia geradi forests.
