Apoka Lodge features 10 rooms built of wood, thatch and canvas with décor that stems from rock, savannah and the natural landscape. Rooms have a private veranda with an outdoor tub. Kidepo has been classified as semi-desert – but this classification can be very misleading. Expansive grassy plains are dotted with big rocky outcrops and flanked by steep jagged mount ...ains. In the distance to the north, perfect triangular conical mountains rise out of Sudanese soil, to the east is the sudden drop of the Great Rift – we are at the western edge of this rift, looking down into Kenya’s Turkana country. Dry river beds zig zag across the park,fringed with borassus and sausage trees. Tracts of forest also feature in this park, many have yet to be explored.
