Zebra Safari lodge Kidepo
Location: Zebra Safari Lodge-Kidepo is located just a stone’s throw from the famous Kalokudo Gate in Kidepo Valley National Park, Karamoja Sub-region, North Eastern part of Uganda. The Lodge shares a border and overlooks the beautiful and breathtaking views of the savannah grasslands of Kidepo Valley National Park.
Rooms: Zebra Safari Lodge-Kidepo features five luxurious King Size Cottages, situated on elevated ground. Each of the spacious cottages has a private veranda with a beautiful view of the mighty endless savannah vegetation along with a cool breeze of unpolluted air.
Room facilities: All cottages are comfortably furnished with 1 king size bed and have an en-suite bathroom with 24 hour hot showers, running water for the wash basins and a flushing toilet.
Restaurant: The spacious thatched roof restaurant/dining and bar area offers one of the best views of the park. The views stretching out to South Sudan are breathtaking, but so are the rolling hills. From the elevated deck and observation tower in front of the restaurant, you can often witness the kind of view only the National Geographic Channel can capture. Built with a grass thatched roof, the bar and restaurant overlook the breathtaking endless savannah. The bar is modern and well stocked with a variety of wines, spirits and beers. The restaurant offers set menus of 2-course meals for lunch and 4-course meals for dinner, categorized by the dietary requirements (please let staff know ahead of time) of guests who have communicated in advance, as everything is solar powered on site, including the fridges, freezers hence the set menu on offer.
Activities: Walks accompanied by an armed guide, along dry riverbeds, over rocky outcrops and through bushland to monitor the wildlife present. Lamoj Mountains: Most hikes are conducted in the Lamoj Mountains, just a few miles from the park headquarters. This area is in the Narus Valley, an excellent area for game viewing. Kidepo River Valley: Visitors might as well go see the beautiful Kidepo River Valley. The river is dry for most of the year. A walk on the wide white sand bed or in the borassus palm forest that feels like an oasis in the Sahara desert is a fascinating attraction.
Bird watching and visits to local communities such as the IK tribe, one of the original tribes and the Karamojong.
