Forest elephant encounters
Another special experience that Nature Nest Safaris offers is forest elephant encounters. Forest elephants are smaller and darker than their savanna cousins, and they are also more elusive. This makes them a special treat to see.
Nature Nest Safaris rangers know the best places to find forest elephants, and they will lead visitors to these areas. Once found, visitors can watch the elephants from a safe distance, and learn about their unique behavior and ecology.
Pygmy hippopotamuses are miniature hippos that are found only in a few lowland forests in Central Africa. They are shy and nocturnal, making them difficult to spot. However, Nature Nest Safaris rangers know the best places to find pygmy hippos, and they will lead visitors to these areas in the hope of spotting these unique creatures.
Semuliki National Park is a birder’s paradise, with over 440 bird species recorded. This includes 23 Albertine Rift endemics, such as the Rwenzori turaco, the Ituri batis, and the Ruwenzori apalis.
