Views Over the Forest Canopy

Staying at Semliki is like stepping back in time. It evokes the spirit of the old explorers, it piques curiosity and inspires discovery.

Semliki is secluded and intimate. With a maximum of 18 guests we promise excellent service and attention to detail…and an unforgettable experience.

Our guests stay in golden-hued tents with gleaming hardwood floors. Staying under canvas is one of the most romantic and exciting things to do in on safari in Africa. You hear the sounds, you feel the wind, you smell the rain before it comes. But this isn’t roughing it either: the tents are protected by a thick thatch roof and feature en-suite bathrooms with running water, hot showers and flush toilets. Tea or coffee is brought to you in the morning so you can lie in bed or sit on your veranda and drink in the view before the day begins.

Blending Into the Environment

The main lodge – with its soaring thatched roof – is where our guests gather round the chunky dining tables or sprawl in the comfy armchairs and sofas telling stories and sharing experiences. Lit by lanterns and open to the elements on one side, at Semliki you really feel like you are touching the wild. Get out and walk – there are miles of trails cut through the riverine forests that crisscross the savanna.

Go chimpanzee tracking – we helped launch the Semliki Chimpanzee Research Project. Have a chat with the resident chimp researcher and learn about evolution and bipedalism. Come and explore. Come and allow your senses leeway. Come and stay awhile.
