One of the richest areas of floral and faunal diversity in all of Africa, tiny Semuliki National Park packs a lot into a small package.

While it is best known as a fantastic bird-watching destination (more than 400 species call the park home), it is also possible to see wildlife such as elephants, buffalo, chimpanzees, baboons, hippos, and crocodiles. The famous ‘fanged deer’ can also be found within the park.

The park’s hot springs are a popular attraction as well, with hikers able to cook their own meals in the piping hot water after a long trek.
