The journey can be very exhausting to drive direct to the Park thus making it necessary to break the journey in Kitgum and proceed the next day!

The Karamajong culture is still pure and totally unique from most other tribes in Uganda; they have rejected civilization and still live like in the ancient times. The Karamajong are predominantly pastoralists and live purposely to fight for their cattle as it is in their belief that every cattle in the world belongs to them. As such, fierce cattle raids still occur in the region and at times stretch to neighboring Kenya! They are a very interesting group of people with a very unique culture visible in their way of dressing, cooking, dancing and other daily life activities. A visit to the Karamajong is a truly rewarding experience you should look forward to. Later you will be transferred back to Kitgum.
