Explore Semuliki National Park

We will begin with the most eye-catching item in Semuliki, the Sempaya hot springs. These natural springs have a geyser shooting up from an 8 meters-wide hole at a hot temperature. It’s the largest of its kind in Uganda. Along the same trail, you can recognize quite a number of bird species like blue –breasted kingfisher and Frasier’s ant-thrush and primates like the grey-checked mangabey and red-tailed monkey. Continue to Mungilo waterfall and see more attractive birds specially if you are a birder. Alternatively, you can opt to go down into the stunning gallery rainforest to track wild chimpanzees at an extra minimal fee. Chimps are tracked by researchers in Semliki at dawn and dusk, as they tend to disappear in the middle of the day. Then you will return to the lodge for lunch and have some time to relax by the pool and enjoy the tranquility of the Lodge. Late afternoon you will go for a game drive where you expect to see elephants, buffalo, leopard, lions, antelopes, big cats among other. Hippos and crocodiles can be seen along Semliki River.
