Apoka Safari Lodge
Located on a granite ridge providing cooling breezes and stunning views over the Kidepo Valley, the lodge is built as a classic Africa bush camp. With a rustic design and blessed with good food and service, the lodge features outdoor bathtubs, a swimming pool carved out of the granite rock and a manmade waterhole which attracts a great deal of plains wildlife. The lodge offers all the extra trappings of a quality safari lodge with bush breakfasts, walking safaris and sundowners aplenty. There is no better place from which to explore the wildlife-filled plains of Kidepo.
Each of the ten large guest rooms comes with a good view, veranda, outdoor tub, double beds, mosquito nets and en suite bathrooms. Included in your stay are all meals, teas&coffees, laundry and drinks (excluding premium brands).
Wildlife here is dominated by traditional plains animals: huge herds of buffalo, giraffe, zebra, elephant and antelope, all stalked by healthy populations of lion, leopard and cheetah. Bird highlights include Kori Bustard, White-bellied Go-Away bird, Abyssinian Roller, Purple Heron, Abyssinian Ground Hornbill, Clapperton’s Francolin, Abyssinian Scimitar bill, Jackson’s Hornbill, African-pied Hornbill and around 460 other species.

Wildlife highlights included seeing a shoebill, we really had to search! Seeing a leopard up close on our night drive, seeing lions out on our own! The abundance and concentration of wildlife in Lake Mburu. And of course the gorillas which was so magical and the chimps.
