Kidepo Valley National Park

Of great interest, Kidepo Valley National Park (KVNP) is one of Uganda's most spectacular parks with an area of 1,442km² (see Figure 1.13). The KVNP harbors scenic landscape that cannot be found in any other protected areas in East Africa, and the park lies extremely in the corner of Uganda's boarder with Sudan and Kenya respectively. This park is relatively unique as mentioned in the context by virtue of its ecosystems like the open savannah and unique belt of mountain ranges, which end in a rugged horizon in diverse landscape. It is imperative to note that the climatic conditions in KVNP, supports flora which has maintained the presence of unique mammal species and most of these animals are found nowhere else in Ugandan parks except Kidepo ecological environs (IUCN, 1998).
