IntroductionLocated on the border with Sudan, 355 mi/570 km northeast of Kampala, Kidepo Valley Park is the third-largest national park in the country. In spite of its significant size, it has never attracted many tourists because of its remoteness, but the opening of an upmarket lodge likely will change that. Kidepo supports a rich variety of large mammals, ranging from lion and cheetah to greater kudu and giraffe, but its main attraction is the sense of being miles/kilometers off any beaten tourist track. It is also very alluring to bird-watchers. The Karamoja people who inhabit the area are traditional nomadic pastoralists with strong cultural affinities to the more famous Maasai of Kenya and Tanzania.
