Tour Detail

Local People

There are four ethnic groups living around the park.  The Bamba and Bakonjo are found in the valley and mountain slopes respectively and both are agriculturalists depending on cash crops like coffee, cocoa and food crops mainly bananas, rice and potatoes.

The Batuku who occupy the rift valley floor, north of the park are pastrolists who depend entirely on cattle products which they trade in with their neighbours (in both Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo).

The Batwa (pigmies) are hunters and gatherers, and are an Ituri ethnic group who historically depended and still depend on Semuliki Forest.  Their life style is now changing due to interaction with other local communities and the impact of tourism.  In 1993, the Adventist Development Relief Agency (ADRA) convinced the Batwa and resettled them near Ntandi in a bid to integrate them into local cultural and agricultural life, but the project failed.  The Batwa now spend part of their time in their new homes and the other in their traditional homes (the forest).  All in all, they now live by hunting, fruit gathering, assistance from local communities and contributions from tourists who go to interact with them.
