Semliki National Park

Discover and enjoy the pearl of Africa

Located in western Uganda, Semliki National Park (220 km2) gazetted in October 1993, is one of Uganda’s newest National Parks. It lies on Uganda-Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) border within the western arm of the East African Rift Valley.

Hot water springs: Africa’s Rift Valley has bestowed Uganda with some of its most memorable geographical features – conical volcanoes, deep chasms and bubbling thermal springs. Spewing an enormous steam cloud across Semliki National Park’s emerald landscapes, the Sempaya Hot Springs are certainly one of the country’s most unusual scenic offerings.

In addition to the hot springs, the unique bird life is a special attraction to bird watchers. Primates and some buffaloes, elephants, pygmy, hippos etc.
