The place to come if you want to see Shoebills

Where tropical rainforest meets acacia woodland and grassy savannah, and the Rift Valley Escarpment dramatically rises at the foothills of the Rwenzori Mountains

Semliki Game Reserve, Uganda's oldest protected area, is at the southern shore of Lake Albert. Habitats range from tropical rainforest to open acacia woodland and savannah, and on clear days, visitors can marvel at vistas of the Rwenzori Mountains. Notable mammal species include buffalo, elephants, and Uganda kob, and both day and nocturnal game drives are permitted in the reserve. The Mugiri River Forest is also known for its habituated chimpanzee population, and the nearby Sempaya Hot Springs are worth a visit too on a tailor made Semliki safari holiday.

Bird watching tours in Semliki National Park are popular with visitors, and there are over 400 species found here, including the pre-historic looking Shoebill.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
