Semliki Wildlife Reserve - Uganda

Semliki wildlife reserve is 545 sq. km large and it is larger than the Semuliki National park. It was created in 1932 as Toro reserve and it was the first Uganda reserve to be gazetted.

During the dark years of Amin's dictatorship, the reserve was poached heavily and the number of wildlife decreased drastically. These days Semliki wildlife reserve has once again become an interesting place , especially for its primate presence, like colobus, olive baboons and vervet monkeys its wide wild sceneries, and for its great birdlife.

Semliki wildlife reserve is an ideal place to watch the hard to see Leaf-love (Phyllastrephus scandens), Shoebill (Balaeniceps rex), Pennant-winged Nightjar (Macrodipteryx vexillarius) and the Standard-winged Nightjar (Macrodipteryx longipennis).

Within the reserve there is Nkusi waterfall, a beautiful waterfall similar to Murchison Falls.
