The local communities around the park include pastoral Karamojong people, similar to the Maasai of Kenya, and the IK, a hunter-gatherer tribe whose survival is threatened. Kidepo National Park is home to one the smallest ethnic groups in Africa, a people called the Ik. According to folklore, the Ik have wandered through much of East Africa, and came from Ethiopia hundreds of years ago.

Terrill Schrock is a linguist working with three generations of Ik to uncover the secrets of the Ik language. He’s found evidence linking them to cultures as far away as southern Egypt. “It’s like a museum,” he says. “It’s a storehouse of historical information, cultural information, and ecological information. When a language like that dies, you could liken it to a library burning down“. You will also observe the way of life of the Karamojong and the Ik.
