You and a guest will enjoy a 7 night stay with Wildplaces Africa: 3 nights at Apoka Safari Lodge, 2 nights at Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge and 2 nights at Semliki Safari Lodge in Uganda. 

Your trip includes all meals, house beverages and airstrip road transfers.

When you close your eyes and think of Africa, the landscape you imagine – the jagged hills, the golden grasses, the plains dotted with wildlife, the soft glowing light – is likely to be Kidepo. This is Uganda’s most remote park, far away from city life. Apoka Safari Lodge in Kidepo Valley National Park is abundant with lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, giraffe and zebra. 

Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is Uganda’s highest lodge at 6,500 feet above sea level. In a beautiful, remote cottage above the clouds, the accommodations have breathtaking views of the Virunga National Park vol-canos and the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. 

Semliki is secluded and intimate. With a maximum of 18 guests, we promise excellent service and attention to detail as well as an unforgettable experience. 

Funds raised from the trip will be granted to the Nkuringo Integrated Model School—a place of formal education and vocational training —in support of rural education and environmental development.
