Apoka Lodge

Apoka is in the heart of Kidepo Valley National Park, tucked into the North-Eastern corner of Uganda where it meets Sudan and Kenya. By road it is at least 9 hours drive from Kampala. Most guests fly to Apoka, either using the lodge’s private plane, or by chartering a private plane..or through the thrice-weekly scheduled service of the local scheduled airline Eagle Air. There is an airstrip very near the lodge and we run complimentary transfers to and from this strip.


The rooms at Apoka have been built with comfort in mind. Everything is handmade by local craftsmen, everything is large and capacious. 10 expansive rooms with natural canvas walls surround a rocky kopje with endless views across the savannah. With inside sitting rooms and private verandas there are plenty of places to relax, read and write letters. Big hand-hewn beds with soft duvets are draped with mosquito nets, hand-woven woolen carpets and extra large plush towels. Each room has its own ensuite bathroom with double sink and large tropical shower. Water is heated by solar power. Step outside to a sheltered terrace and slip into your own outdoor stone bathtub. All rooms have electric lights, power points.
