Semliki National Park and the beautiful Semliki wildlife reserve lie on the southern shores of Lake Albert and offers a mosaic of different habitats with some excellent birding opportunities.
The Toro-Semliki Wildlife Reserve (formerly called the Toro Game Reserve) is subtly different and shows affinities with the northern savanna woodland with over 400 bird species and a captivating landscape.
No visitor to the reserve should miss a boat trip on Lake Albert for nowhere else in Uganda do you stand a better chance of seeing the mighty shoebill.
