It's a spectacular location, with gorgeous rooms and wonderful view. I stayed fora weekend and was very well taken care of by Patrick, John, and their very attentive staff. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience for my first wildlife park in Uganda. I'd happily have stayed there for months.

At least that's this American's point of view - and it was an all-male client at the time, so lots of tales being told. Patrick and John are delightful and entertaining hosts, and passionate about the land they live on. Evening rounds of stories around the campfire, a wealth of local knowledge, good hearty food, and a stunning, truly wild location. It is not 'glamping' as one can do (and I've done;) in Kenya on a luxury safari, but for a true feel of the bush, it's outstanding, not least of which is because of Patrick and John. It was a vacation and also an education. Made me want to cancel my return flight. Unforgettable.

Our 3rd visit to Nga'Moro and Kidepo...both were even better than we remembered. Nga'Moro is spectacularly located. Such a great time with Patrick and John both of whom have wealth of "wild" tales and a great love for the bush. We watched shooting stars late into the night and in spite of rain soaked wood, a lovely bonfire. Delicious meals, happily served and an escort to walk us back to our Banda, lions and elephants were close enough to hear. Thank you Patrick for your generous hospitality and we shall return, that I promise.

The staff are all very friendly and accommodating and cook the most delicious food (seeing as you are in the middle of nowhere), you will definitely not go hungry. They also catered beautifully for me as a vegetarian. The accommodation is basic but seeing as you are staying on the border of Kidepo Valley National Park it's like luxury. We stayed in a safari tent which had 2 single beds which were very comfortable and although we were worried about getting cold the blankets kept us toasty warm. The tent also backs onto a stone ensuite with hot running water, which was bliss. John (the owner's father) personally drove us from Fugly's in Kitgum to Nga Moru, showed us around the property and sat with us around the fire after dinner telling stories from being a park ranger. Such

We have recently stayed three nights in this camp , week of 7/2014 . On arrival we were kindly welcomed by manager Greg who has briefed us about the risks and procedures to pay attention on especially at night because the place isn't fenced at all . The location is very good to start the morning and afternoon safari's in the Narus Valley surrounded by a chain of mountains up to the border of South-Soudan and Kenya . Greg and his staff are doing their upmost best to make your stay memorial after returning home . At night after diner the open fire close to the main building gives a special attraction and is lovely to drink a beer or more and chatting with Greg and John about various subjects . We were the only visitors and being treated as VIP's ... on top getting a piece of

We really enjoyed our three nights stay at Kidepo. I read the bad reviews other clients have written, but frankly, I don't understand them. The place was very well maintained when we stayed there. They were still building one banda, but the banda's that we occupied were completely finished with all luxury one would need in the wilderness, even hot showers. You are staying in the wild, so we weren't very surprised when we were visited by a bat and a small rodent at night. We even named the rodent: Fons, a really nice fella... The food was just wonderful. Incredible that they succeed in cooking this good so far away from civilisation. The scenery of Kidepo and the peace and quiet of this place is great. Kidepo isn't trampled by massive hordes of tourists and has beautiful

I was lucky enough to visit this stunning valley twice in a few months. Each time the food was amazing ( I still cannot believe the style of food served in the middle of nowhere). The attention to detail in the huts makes you forget you are in one of the most remote places on earth. The bathrooms are not only amazing but energy efficient with solar panels for heating the water. The driver and the vehicle made the safari unforgettable, especially since I saw a leopard. The peacefulness was unbelievable and the lion roaring in the morning made a great start to the day.The drive there was awe inspiring. My second trip was as a girls weekend, which was so much fun, we all had such a great time and the staff were so attentive and aware of our needs. Both times I was able to sit

We stayed in a lovely cabin at Nga'Moru in late January. We were the only travelers there, in part because Kidepo is in such a remote part of Uganda. The bed and the ensuite bath were perfect -- the solar heating for the water worked great! We loved the sitting area looking over the park, and the staff even brought our lunch down for us! The food was simple but good and the staff attentive and kind. We had some excellent soups, meatballs, and a generous breakfast every day. Nga' Moru is expensive, but much more affordable than the high end stay in the park itself. Still, the drive to the park once or twice a day is quite long (at least 45 m) over very bumpy roads, so be prepared for that inconvenience. Some of it is in the park so it is beautiful -- but it adds significant time.

I stayed here twice within 1 month - the first time I was in one of the tents and found it very comfortable. They all have ensuite bathrooms so you don't have to travel to go to the bathroom at night. Second time I stayed in the villas which were also very nice! I felt a little more comfortable in the villa than the tent though. Prices are very reasonable as they include all your food and beverages. The food is REALLY good and they give you plenty of it. If you know you will be out the whole day on safari they pack you a lunch. I got to hang with the owners - drinking wine, chatting and watching out for the lions. Its a short drive to the Park but be careful of the Tutsi flies as there is a part of the road on the way into the park that is infested with them. Wear

The road to Kidepo is one of the best drives I've ever done. Finding NgaMoru -- or anything in this region -- can be a little challenging. All of the locals knew this hotel as Afrimax for some reason. We could hardly believe how peaceful and organized the place was once we arrived there, and also how attentive the staff were. We stayed three nights and all of us loved the privacy of the separate chalets. The family that owns this place and Fugly's in Kitgum was a load of fun as well. As our group was traveling independently in a rented 4x4 we really appreciated Pat's advice for the park. Thanks!
