Renowned as ‘The True Birder’s Haven’ Semuliki National Park is one of, if not the best birding location in the world!

Proudly proclaimed as ‘The True Birders’ Haven’, Semuliki National Park is a must for any one considering a birding tour in Uganda!

Occupying an isolated slice of Ugandan territory beyond the Rwenzori, it represents the easternmost tract of the Congo’s Great Ituri Forest. This is an exceptionally exciting destination for both birders and primate watchers. The 441 recorded bird species including 216 forest birds and 80 Central African species are found in few, if any, other forests in East Africa. The Black Dwarf Hornbill, Shining Blue Kingfisher, Nkulengu Rail and Yellow-throated Nicator are just a few of the parks highlights. And to top it all off an astonishing 5 species of primate, more than even Kibale can be found within the 6 km of the primeval hot springs that bubble out of the Rift Valley floor at Sempaya!

Join us on an unforgettable Sustainable Birding Tour at Semuliki National Park!
