A unique luxury property, Apoka Safari Lodge spoils you with 10 lovely rooms, fine dining and a swimming pool chiselled into rock. Large, thatched cottages with canvas walls and solar power look out on wildlife attracted to the on-site watering hole. Each cottage features an outdoor tub, stone showers and a writing desk that would suit Hemingway to a tee.
The swimming pool (US$25) is available to day visitors when no guests are booked. Meals are another possibility for nonguests (lunch/dinner US$30/45), depending on other bookings. Reception displays the skull of Kidepo’s last rhino – shot by poachers in the early 1980s.
