Semuliki National Park

Semuliki is the only true lowland tropical forest in East Africa spreading across the floor of the Semliki Valley on the rare, western side of the Rwenzori. The park covers 220km², offering a taste of Central Africa without having to leave Uganda. Although the different species in Semuliki have been gathering for over 25,000 years, the park contains evidence of even older progressions. This park is famously known for its Hot springs bubble up from the depths to demonstrate the powerful underground forces that have been part of the rift valley for the last 14 million years. Numerous mammals and different bird species have been recorded in the park and some have gone as far as banding it a birders paradise due to the colorful display of the pink flamingos.
