Apoka Rest Camp

Tucked away in the remote wilderness of Kidepo Valley National Park in Uganda. Apoka Rest Camp beckons travelers seeking an authentic African safari experience. Surrounded by sweeping savannahs, towering mountains, and an abundance of wildlife. This camp offers a sanctuary for nature enthusiasts and adventurers alike.

Apoka Rest Camp serves as the perfect basecamp for exploring all that the park has to offer. Whether you’re a seasoned safari enthusiast or a first-time visitor. The camp provides a comfortable and immersive experience, allowing you to reconnect with nature while enjoying modern amenities.

Whether you’re seeking tranquility amidst the wilderness or camaraderie around the campfire, you’ll find it here at Apoka Rest Camp.


Apoka Rest Camp includes sixteen self-contained cottages, each with attractive mattresses and mosquito nets. The rooms, on the other hand, are created and fashioned in an African style of architecture and have good fresh air despite the lack of an air conditioner. The Apoka Rest Camp features fourteen bandas, each with two beds, however the rooms are not self-contained.

Apoka Rest Camp features a vast and open property that is popular for camping. If you want to go camping, you can do so, but you must provide your own camping equipment because the lodge merely provides a camping site.


The lodge does not have an operating restaurant; you will need to bring your own food to feed on. Meanwhile, we recommend that you pack your food from Kampala or Mbale, Gulu, and other dependable metropolitan towns, which may offer cuisine of your interest. The camp has some refrigeration, and you may bring in frozen meat. Markets sell eggs, bread, and prepared soups, and you can make a stew with anything from vegetables to meat or chicken.

Cultural Visits

The Camp offers cultural visits to nearby villages, providing guests with the opportunity to learn about traditional customs, crafts, and way of life.

From traditional dances and ceremonies to handicraft demonstrations and storytelling sessions, these interactions offer a fascinating glimpse into the rich cultural heritage of Uganda’s northeastern region. It’s a chance to forge connections, foster understanding, and gain a deeper appreciation for the cultural tapestry that shapes this corner of Africa.

Wildlife Viewing

Apoka Rest Camp is the opportunity to embark on guided Game Drives and Nature Walks within Kidepo Valley National Park. Led by experienced guides, these excursions offer the chance to encounter a diverse array of wildlife for instance elephants, lions, giraffes, buffalo, cheetah and more.

As you traverse the park’s rugged terrain, you’ll witness firsthand the intricate balance of life on the savannah, from the majestic predators stalking their prey to the graceful antelope grazing peacefully in the distance. Each sighting is a reminder of the awe-inspiring beauty and resilience of Africa’s natural world.

Karamojong Visits

A unique insight into the warrior tribe’s way of life. The name Karamojong is derived from a phrase meaning ‘the old men can walk no further’. Originally from Ethiopia, this tribe settled in the North East of Uganda. Related to the Maasai, this is a warrior nomad tribe for who, for generations, pride and status were cattle and for who cattle raids were the rule of the day. Since the disarmament however, things have calmed down. Cattle is still king, but subsistence farming has become a lot more common.
