4 days Kidepo fly-in ,The 4 days Kidepo fly-in safari leads to the spectacular Kidepo Valley National Park in north-eastern Uganda, bordering Kenya and South Sudan. This remote Wilderness Park is one of the stunning places you should visit for unforgettable African safari experiences. Extending for over 1442 square kilometers, this wilderness Park represents extraordinary beauty with an array of wildlife species including the lions always seen relaxing on rock kopjes, large herds of elephants, buffaloes, leopards, striped hyenas, cheetahs (that are not found in any other Parks of Uganda), spotted hyenas, serval cats, zebras, impalas, Oribis, Uganda Kobs, Topis, warthogs as well as plethora of birds totaling to over 475 species including the rare Somalian Ostriches.

Kidepo Valley National Park is over 10-12 hours’ drive from Kampala, making it unpopular and rarely visited Parks in the country. However, the few tourists who endure the long distance and many hours of travelling to the destination can attest to its beauty. Nonetheless, the 4 days Kidepo fly-in Safari offers a different experience as visitors can opt to fly than driving to the Park. Aerolink is the most popular domestic airline offering both scheduled and chartered flights to the National Parks including Kidepo Valley National Park and as of 2020, flights are operated thrice a week-Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
