Accommodation

You will be accommodated in single or double rooms at the Apoka Safari Lodge, one of the finest accommodation facilities in Kidepo National Valley Park. The rooms at Apoka have been built with comfort in mind. Everything is handmade by local craftsmen, and is large and capacious. 10 expansive rooms with natural canvas walls surround a rocky kopje that has endless views across the savanna.

With indoor sitting rooms and private verandas, there are plenty of places to relax, read, and sprawl. Big hand-hewn beds with soft duvets are draped with mosquito nets, and hand-woven, woolen carpets, extra large, plush towels, and over-sized dressing gowns are made available to you. You may be as far away from the city as you’ll ever be, but you won’t miss a thing.

Step outside to a sheltered terrace and slip into your own outdoor stone bathtub that is big enough to fit your whole family. The swimming pool is deep and cool, and has been carved out of a big rock. This is the kind of pool that makes you want to jump in, splashing, yelling, and feeling like a kid again. Apoka Safari Lodge invites you to drink in the view, feel the lion’s roar in your chest, and come and stay a while.
