Dodoth Tribe Cultural Experience

The Dodoth live in Kaabong District in the Karamoja sub-region, located in the northeast of Uganda. Oral history tells that they separated from the Karamojong  mid-eighteenth century and moved northward into more mountainous territory.

The heartland of their country is a bowl surrounded by mountains and hills on all sides. The tallest peak Mount Morungole near the point where Kenya, Sudan and Uganda converge and the scenic East African Rift escarpment of Timu Forest. The land was once rich in wildlife including lions, elephants, buffalo, giraffes and rhino. Today, the remnant of this wildlife is preserved in Kidepo National Park
