Nga’ Moru, “a place of rocks” in the indigenous language is a mid range facility on the edge of Kidepo valley national park offering comfortable accommodation and hospitality services. Nga ‘moru Wilderness camp is privately owned located 3km close to the main entrance to the park. The safari camp is set on a hill with magical views of the Narus valley, Morungole mountain range and the grasslands extending into the South Sudan. Nga ‘moru has a limited number of cottages; half a dozen to accommodate an affordable clientele they pamper with customer service. All cottages are spacious, en-suite with warm and cold showers, have amazing décor with an African touch and a balcony with commanding views of the Narus valley and the watering holes. Each cottage has solar power for lighting and sockets for charging electronic gadgets.
There is no defined demarcation between the park and the safari camp. Zebras, waterbucks, warthogs, and other smaller wildlife species graze close to the camp during the day. Loud roars of lions and bellows of buffalos from nearby grasslands go on through the night and often footmarks of lions, buffalos, elephants and other large mammals are visible in the lawns of the camp. It is highly risky to venture out the cottage in the night, if you must, then a very bright flashlight is a condition sine qua non.
Nga’ moru wilderness camp has a well equipped kitchen and competent chefs that prepare aromatic organic continental dishes. The kitchen staff serves meals in the restaurant on time, though visitors can have the meals in the cottage on request. Visitors with dietary requirements need to notify the chef on checking in to regulate preparation of certain food items. The bar has stock of spirits, wines, beer, soft drinks of international and Ugandan brands. The safari camp is eco-friendly running on solar power that depends on the intensity of heat from the sun and drinks may not always be cold. In the quietness and stillness of the night in the wilderness where television is an inconvenience, the campfire is a very popular hangout place. Visitors get an opportunity to gel with each other, share wildlife and life experiences, share a drink and often make long lasting bonds in such informal interactions.
Nga ‘moru is located close to entrance to Kidepo valley national park and resident visitors have same privileges as visitors residing inside the park but at a more affordable rate. It is simple to arrange and be in time to take part in all tourism activities in Kidepo valley national park. Nga’ moru wilderness camp is a perfect rendez vous to launch visit to the indigenous community; the Karimojong manyata and the Ik tribe in Morungole mountain range.
