Semuliki National park is located in the heart of Uganda’s Western rift valley, is a prime conservation area and lies at the base of the Albertine Rift to the west of Fort Portal and the magnificent Rwenzori foothills standing to the south.
Boosting both a National Park and a Game Reserve, Semuliki valley National park is untouched treasure in the valley of the great rift valley wilderness. Featuring as Uganda’s oldest wildlife reserve stretching over 540km², the park was gazetted in 1993 and is approximately 220km². The park protects a practically unspoilt tropical lowland forest and forms the easternmost tip of the Central Africa rainforest.
The most popular attraction to Semliki National Park is the collection of hot springs at Sempaya, which can be reached from a short walking trail. The hot springs are situated in the midst of rainforest and palm trees. The largest spring is a geyser shooting up from an 8m-wide opening in a low salt sculpture. The emerging water has a temperature of above 100°C. Contact our Safari Drive Uganda Expertriates to tailor make and include Semulik national park
