Accommodation & Facilities:
Guests at Semliki Safari Lodge have the whole valley to
themselves: this award winning lodge is the only lodge in
the entire Semliki Valley.
Semliki was built in the grand old safari tradition with
canvas tents under thatched roofs…but this is far from
camping. Gleaming hardwood floors, four poster beds, persian
carpets…each room has electric lights and ensuite bathrooms
with running water. Each has a veranda overlooking
wonderful views. When your tea or coffee is brought to you
in the morning – you can sit in your bathrobe taking in the
views of mountains and savanna, forest and river valley. The main lodge is a large, comfortable living space where
our guests converge to watch the sun set, listen to stories
and gather around the massive hand-hewn tables to share
their experiences of the day. Lots of comfortable
armchairs and sofas.

buffalo and numerous antelope species and lion can be found

occasional in this area.
The bird life is also unique in that the reserve is
graced with both southern and northern migrants, the
wetlands teem with birds, including the rare and hard to
find shoebill which nests in the shallows of Lake Albert.
