3. Exploring the traditional villages of Karamajongs

Meet the Nomad Warriors, the Karamojong (Karamojong) are a proud people living in their traditional ways as semi-nomadic herders in the remote Karamoja region of Uganda which borders South Sudan and Kenya. If you are on Safari with us to Kidepo Valley Park, a visit to a Karamojong Manyatta (Village) can be included in your itinerary from Kidepo Valley Park or if journeying up from Mount Elgon – Sipi Falls area one can visit the largest Manyatta in East Africa near the small town of Kotido. A Manyatta visit will be culturally enlightening and refreshing since it this is not a Tourist staged event but you will see how the Karamojong live, the houses where you have to bend down to enter through a small entrance, observe community life, and one of the highlights is of course the traditional dancing which is accompanied by high jumping, all performed in honor of your visit. Visiting the Karamojong people will be one of the highlights of your time in Uganda.
