The Kidepo Valley National Park park is located in Kaabong District, in the northeastern corner of Uganda.
The northwestern boundary of the park runs along the international frontier with South Sudan and abuts against its Kidepo Game Reserve. The park’s altitude ranges between 914m and 2,750m above sea level.
Gazetted as a national park in 1962, it has a profusion of big game and hosts over 77 mammal species as well as around 475 bird species.
The park contains two rivers – Kidepo and Narus – which disappear in the dry season, leaving just pools for the wildlife.
