Apoka Safari Lodge
Situated within in the secluded Kidepo Valley National Park, the serene Apoka Safari Lodge blends seamlessly into the park’s natural surroundingss. Here, sheltered by a rocky hill, just 10 exquisitely furnished rooms extend limitless vistas across the grassy savannah, and interiors that take their cue from the environment. Rock, wood and natural hues work alongside hand-crafted wooden beds, which are romantically draped with soft, mosquito nets. Hand-woven woollen carpets offer an element of added warmth and secluded sitting rooms and private verandas cater for quiet moments. A lovely ensuite bathroom features a large tropical shower and deep outdoor bathtub – the perfect refuge after a successful day of game viewing.
Massive boulders envelope a dazzling swimming pool hewn out of the rock, while the main sitting room bestows the ideal setting to while away the hours with a great book or a fun-filled board game. Game drives set out in search of the local wildlife and include thrilling spotlit night drives. Guests can also venture out on guided walks, tracking game in the deep sand of dry riverbeds. Kidepo is renowned for its vast number of bird species and the area around the lodge offers rewarding birdwatching. Excursions to the local Karamajong community can also be arranged
