The Ugandan Kidepo Valley National Park in the Northernmost part of the country is an unspoiled rugged savannah. The park is dominated by the presence of the 2,750 meters (9,020 ft) tall Mount Morungole. The Brits established Uganda's most remote game reserve in 1958 on 1,442 km2 (557 sq mi) of land.
Apoka Safari Lodge lies here in a remote corner of the national park, surrounded by golden grasses, jagged hills, and vibrant wildlife. Apoka offers an exclusive getaway in boutique-like accommodations with only ten rooms. They are handcrafted by local builders and have extensive interiors with sitting rooms and private verandas. The hand-hewn beds with plush duvets are protected by mosquito nets. Once you step outside to your sheltered terrace, you'll find an outdoor stone bathtub, big enough to fit four people. It's the highlight of Apoka, and if you look at the photos below, you'll understand why. The outstanding panorama from the foamy bath makes you want to stay there forever. But you are here to discover the wilderness, right?
Apoka is the right place if you seek the safari of your lifetime. It is Uganda's only national park where giraffes and zebras are living together. Wildlife in Kidepo is abundant; lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, zebras, buffaloes, hartebeests, waterbucks, bushbucks, warthogs, and countless other species roaming on the surface of the endless savannah.
