Apoka Safari Lodge is located on a picturesque kopje overlooking the Narus valley in the south-western sector of Kidepo Valley National Park–Uganda’s most remote park. Apoka Safari Lodge is relaxed,and quietly located in the park providing a peaceful and private experience.Wildlife is viewed from the privacy of your veranda or your private outdoor stone bathtub, but the best way to see the wildlife is up close: on foot,or in one of the open-top Landcruisers. Apoka Lodge features 10 rooms built of wood, thatch and canvas with décor that stems from rock, savannah and the natural landscape.
Expansive rooms with natural canvas walls surround a rocky kopje with endless views across the savannah. With inside sitting rooms and private verandas there are plenty of places to relax, read and write letters. Big hand-hewn beds with soft duvets are draped with mosquito nets, hand-woven woolen carpets, extra large plush towels, oversized dressing gowns. Each room has its own ensuite bathroom with double sink and large tropical shower. Water is heated by solar power and there is plenty of it. Step outside to a sheltered terrace and slip into your own outdoor stone bathtub, big enough to fit the whole family. All rooms have electric lights, power points.
Main lodge with dining room and plenty of lounge space. All meals, teas & coffees and bar(except premium brands) are included.
Wildlife in Kidepo is abundant. Lions, leopard, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, zebra (this is Uganda’s only park where giraffe and zebra are found together), possibly Africa’s largest herds of buffalo, hartebeest, waterbuck, bushbuck, warthog…the list is endless. Better still, much of it can be seen from the privacy of your veranda or your outdoor bathtub, but the best way to see the wildlife is up close: on foot, or in one of our open-top Landcruisers.
Step outside to a sheltered terrace and slip into your own outdoor stone bathtub, big enough to fit the whole family. The swimming pool at Apoka Lodge – deep and cool – has been carved out of the big rock. This is the kind of pool that makes you want to jump in, splashing and yelling, feeling like a kid again.
