The idyllic Apoka Lodge sits in perfect harmony with its surrounding Kidepo National Park, a place to lose yourself in golden plains, infinite skies, and iconic wildlife. Escape reality and reconnect with nature on this unrivalled safari experience in Uganda’s most remote and picturesque Lodge.

Canvas walls house dark wooden furnishings and large, curtain-draped beds. All furniture is delicately hand-crafted in authentic local style. Soft duvets, thick towels and large bathrobes lie in every room – as far from city life as it is possible to get, yet never compromising on luxury and comfort.
Highly experienced guides will take you on exclusive expeditions into the heart of the prairie, imparting their infinite knowledge of this untouched wilderness. Watch as majestic elephants follow ancient paths across the golden savannah, while lions sprawl lazily on branches, dozing in the heat of the afternoon sun. Back at the lodge, the pool’s natural aesthetic blends beautifully with its luscious surroundings, the ideal place to relax with a cool drink and soak up the liberating expanse of the African plain. The surrounding stone patio plays host to both tranquil, early-morning breakfasts and romantic candlelit dinners, under a vast expanse of impossibly bright stars. As the soft light of sunset shoots golden rays across the rolling plains, illuminating the distant mountains in deep shades of pink and red, relax with a sundowner under a fig tree’s twisting branches, and reflect on another day in this peaceful paradise.

Why we love it
If the stunning pool doesn’t take your fancy, then step onto your shady terrace and slip into the deep warmth of your private, outdoor bath. Soak in a pool of fragrant bubbles while herds of zebra graze the lush grass before you and giraffes amble lazily by in the lull of the afternoon. This is safari luxury at its most indulgent.
