Semuliki National Park/Uganda

Introducing Semuliki National Park

Semuliki is part of the vast Ituri forest, where the steaming jungle of the DRC collides with the higher plateau that is Uganda. The main attractions of Semuliki are the hot springs near Sempaya and the (commercialised) Pygmy villages near the village of Ntandi, a few kilometres before Bundibugyo. The best part of any trip around the park, however, is the magnificent views over the rainforest and savannah of the Semuliki Valley and DRC beyond.

At the park headquarters at Ntandi, there are camp sites (camp sites USh10, 000). There are also two bandas at Mpora Rural Family (0493-22636; mmorence@yahoo.com; banda per person US$10), a homestay near Kichwamba Technical College. The money funds a local orphanage.

Minibus taxis travel between Fort Portal and Bundibugyo and can drop passengers at Ntandi. Otherwise, charter a vehicle with a driver from Fort Portal, rent a motorcycle or take an excursion offered by Kabarole Tours.
