Mindful of its pristine forest surroundings and eco-responsible in all its activities, Semliki Safari Lodge stands in an area famed for its hot springs and geysers which can be reached via a short walking trail. Water shoots out at over 100 degrees centigrade from openings in a low salt landscape. Accommodating a maximum of eighteen guests, the lodge comprises tented rooms boasting large four-poster beds, plush en suite bathrooms and design touches such as hand-woven Persian carpets, with a chance to cool off in the swimming pool. In addition to prolific birdlife, expect to see elephant, lion, buffalo and warthog, with sightings of leopard regularly reported. Boat trips provide a different perspective on the local wildlife, while chimp trekking is a lodge speciality due to its involvement in helping to launch the Semliki Chimpanzee Research Project.
