Without doubt, Uganda is the Pearl of Africa! We do not only use artificial medicine but also the healing nature of Uganda’s several hot springs which you need to experience and learn about in Uganda. While on your Africa safari in Uganda, please ask our safari guide to take you to one of the host springs that may be along your route.
Uganda features many hot springs that visitors may encounter during their safari in Uganda. Some of the notable hot springs are located in Uganda`s National parks such as Kidepo valley National park, Semuliki National park, Mount Elgon National Park, Rwenzori Mountains National park and a few kilometres just outside Queen Elizabeth National park where the famous Kitagata hot springs are located.
Many people from around the world come to visit the Kitagata hot springs for healing and if you are interested in the experience, you’re free to join when you come on your holiday in Uganda.
Some of the hot springs have traditional attachments and meaning from the local people for example the Sempaya hot springs located in Semuliki National park which are defined as Male and female because of the local Bakonzo tribe traditional attachments who even offered sacrifices to their gods over the years.
The ‘female’ hot springs as the local people call it, boils at 1000 C and here you will have an experience of tasting on boiled eggs and bananas from these hot springs. The male hot springs are not as hot as the female ones but still too hot for anyone to step in.
Sempaya hot springs are located within Semuliki National park and they are usually accessed by the people on a forest walk through the Uganda Wildlife Authority Offices where you are given a safari guide to escort you and give you security. Expect to encounter various species of birds, monkeys, butterflies and reptiles.
