You will wake up to nature’s sounds and given the remoteness of Kidepo, count on hearing the sounds of an authentic African morning. You will take a sunrise game-drive in and around Apoka valley. You will then return to the lodge for breakfast after which you will embark on a mid-morning game-adventure that will take you to the Kanangarok hot spring. Here, the so-called Big Five can be seen wandering around including Ostrich. This section also commands amazing scenery with savannah grassland and mountains in the distance. After lunch, you can relax. In the evening, head out for a game drive along the Narus River Valley. The valley is a rolling grassland enclosed by distant mountains. The valley has permanent water, and for much of the year the park’s wildlife drinks here. On this drive, look out for elephants, herds of buffaloes, lions plus many other mammals. Dinner and overnight at Apoka UWA Bandas.
