Where to stay in Semuliki National Park Uganda

Semuliki Safari Lodge

Semuliki Safari Lodge is located in formerly called Toro Game Reserve and currently called Semuliki valley, in the Western Rift Valley. It is the only accommodation place in over 500 square kilometers of wilderness, offering a truly private experience.

Its structure is built out of local materials and has a feeling of traditional rustic without losing that all-important comfort.

The lodge has large canvas tents with permanent thatched roofs and each tent includes en-suite bathrooms with running water and private verandas with a stunning panoramic view.

Imagine lying on a hand carved four poster bed draped in muslin. Persian carpets and other soft touches ensure that this is far from roughing it in the bush.

The lodge Sofas is covered with cushions, there is also plenty of lounging space, and loads of books to read, warm muffins brought to you in bed with your morning tea or coffee, and soft fleecy blankets on the beds.

The food prepared at the lodge has been often regarded as the 'Best food in Uganda' because everything is home-made, right from the bread baked daily, to the soups, the relishes and chutneys.

While at the lodge you may choose to do nothing more that relax by the pool which overlooks the Blue Mountains of the Congo, or partake in a number of activities that we run from the lodge.
