Semuliki National Park is an area of 194 square kilometres to the south-west of the valley which protects a large expanse of high altitude tropical forest.
The park is home to over 60 mammal species including elephants and eight species of primates, as well as over 400 species of birds, with a high degree of endemism.
These forests are widely harvested by the local people to supplement their diet and are also home to around 100 Batwa people who continue to live as traditional hunter-gatherers.
The Toro Game Reserve is an area of around 425 square kilometres which lies across the centre of the Semliki Valley, containing a range of lower altitude forest and savannah landscapes, as well as extensive marshes along the southern shores of Lake Albert.
The reserve is home to a range of plains wildlife include kobs, zebras and lions, with elusive elephants, leopards and chimpanzees tucked away in the forests. The marshes are home to elusive shoebill storks.SeasonsAccommodationTrips
