Safety

Toro-Semliki Wildlife Reserve is a safe place to visit in our opinion, especially if you are traveling on an organized tour. Self-drive is also a good option, but independent travelers should always get local advice before heading out. To get current information about safety in Uganda, we advise checking the government travel advisories (see the ‘Safety & Security – Uganda’ link below).

Malaria & Vaccinations

It is important to protect yourself against malaria. Taking antimalarial medication and wearing a mosquito repellent (those containing DEET are most effective) are essential. Also recommended is covering up exposed skin in the evening. Ensure that you have the recommended vaccinations before your departure.

Wildlife Viewing & Primate Tracking

Wildlife viewing can be considered very safe as long as you follow the park’s regulations, and you listen to your guide’s instructions. Also take note of the ‘Wildlife Viewing Safety Precautions' below. If you go chimp trekking while visiting Toro-Semliki WR, you should also read the ‘Chimp Trekking Safety Precautions’.
