End of the 4 Days Kidepo Valley Wildlife Safari in Uganda
Kidepo Valley National park Is an isolated park found in the rocky semi-arid of Karamoja bordering Uganda, South Sudan, and Kenya, located on 1442 square meters dominated by rugged savannah and beautiful blue mountains such as Napore-Nyagia mountain, Morungole mountain, Lotukei mountain, and many more others. The fact that it is in a semi-arid area, water supply is scarce and can be found along with a few places such as the Narus River and Kidepo River
Initially, Kidepo national park was not a national park as it was just another area inhabited by the Dodoth pastoralists who are famously known as the Karamajong and the IK farmers. There were many Borassus palm trees that attracted so many people that came to pick the fruits and make things out of them such as beer, therefore the Dodoth pastoralist named it Kidepo from their verb a Kidepo meaning ‘to pick up’.
In 1958 the area was gazetted because people were burning down the bushes as it was infested with tsetse flies and the fact that animals were attacking people and their livestock/homesteads, it was therefore gazetted to protect both the animals from being poached and attacking people with their livestock. This was formally finalized in 1962 when it was converted into a national park, this left most inhabitants homeless as they were shifted from the park.
These people almost became extinct and can only be found up the scenic Morungole Mountains that are near to Kidepo Valley National Park, if you opt to visit these areas, you will hear all these amazing stories. To have a clear image of what Kidepo was after the transition is by watching a documentary film that was made, called ‘The wild and the brave’
