Semliki Safari Lodge
Semliki Safari Lodge is a luxury safari camp located in the Toro-Semliki Valley Wildlife Reserve in Uganda. It is the only lodge in this region so guarantees guests ultimate privacy and seclusion to explore the variety of ecosystems within the reserve from tropical rainforest to open grassy plains to wetlands and Lake Albert. The park’s location, well off the beaten track makes it an ideal place to spend a few days relaxing and game viewing and away from the rest of the world.
Accommodation & Facilities
This beautiful lodge accommodates a maximum of only 16 guests in eight spacious en-suite safari tents. Each is well appointed ensuring both privacy and fantastic rift valley views. There is also a main lounge area, which has been built only from natural materials such as wood, stone and thatch as well as a relaxing swimming pool.
Wildlife & Activities
Activities on offer include day and night game drives, guided bush walks, boat trips on Lake Albert, jungle walks, bird watching, hiking, fishing and visits to the local community. Guests can also join resident chimpanzee researchers on guided chimp walks to assist them with their research. The unique geography of the reserve is reflected in the diversity of wildlife species found here. Both the forest species of Central Africa (ie: forest buffalo, a darker leopard sub-species and the smaller forest elephant) as well as the key savannah species of East Africa such warthog, buffalo and numerous antelope species and lion can be found here, although big cat and elephant sightings are only occasional in this area. The bird life is also unique in that the reserve is graced with both southern and northern migrants, the wetlands teem with birds, including the rare and hard to find shoebill which nests in the shallows of Lake Albert.
