Classical tented lodge in the grand old safari tradition
The spirit of Semliki Lodge
The only lodge in the Semliki Valley Wildlife Reserve, the traditional and rustic Semliki Lodge offers a truly private game viewing experience. Eight canvas tents under thatched roofs feature gleaming hardwood floors, hand-carved four poster beds and soft Persian carpets. Private verandas open up onto panoramic views, while spacious interiors and sofas piled high with cushions invite guests to while the hours away.
The main lodge is a large, comfortable living space where guests can converge to watch the sunset, swap stories of the day’s adventures and gather around massive, hand-hewn tables to share mouth-watering meals. A sparkling swimming pool offers not only the ideal place to cool down but also spectacular vistas of the Blue Mountains. Apart from morning and evening game drives, guests can choose to take part in chimpanzee tracking or take a guided walk through the jungle. The ample birdlife is ideal for keen birdwatchers, while avid fishermen can try their luck during a boat trip on Lake Albert. Visits to the local community can be arranged for a glimpse of traditional life.
What we love about Semliki Lodge
Waking up to a soft knock on the door, and savouring warm muffins and coffee while sitting on the private veranda, taking in the views of mountain, savannah, forest and river valley.
The delicious food – everything is home-made, from fresh bread baked daily to tasty soups, relishes and chutneys.
The incomparable luxury of knowing that, no matter how you chose to spend your day, you have the entire reserve all to yourself.
