The remoteness of Semuliki National Park near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo and part of the huge Ituri Forest, makes it a haven for birds. Many of these species you cannot find on the beaten path.

At first glance, the scenery may seem bleak to the eye. The forests are not as lush as others in region but this is where you will find several natural hot springs that bubble away softly. There are also salt deposits much favoured by the surrounding wildlife.

This park also boasts of being centered in one of Africa’s most ancient and bio-diverse forests. You are literally taken back in time. Semuliki is best suited for hikers who can take the trails and delight in seeing such bird species as the Red-billed Helmet Shrike and the Long-tailed Hawk. Semuliki is also a campers’ haven, where the trappings of civilization are almost non-existent.

Birdlife in Semuliki:
Since it borders Lake Albert to the South, Semuliki is one of the richest areas for forest birds in Africa, with over 420 species recorded, including the Freckled & Black-shouldered Nightjars, Buff-spotted Flufftail, African Wood owl, African Goshawk, Red-thighed Sparrow-hawks, intermediate heron (on the right), and Northern red bishop among others.

Wildlife in Semuliki:
The beautiful Semuliki wildlife reserve lies on the southern shores of Lake Albert and offers a mosaic of different habitats with some excellent birding opportunities. It is also a miniature version of the Congo River, and the forest is home to numerous Central African wildlife species, including primates, reptiles and antelopes
