Cultural Encounters in Semuliki

The Batwa’s hunter-gatherer lifestyle means they have always been dependent on Semuliki forest for food, shelter, medicine and tools, though this is beginning to change as a result of interaction with other local communities.Tourism offers an alternative source of income for the Batwa, and gives them the opportunity to maintain and display their rich cultural history through music and dance performances at Ntandi. They also produce intricate handcrafts for sale.A boma, or cultural village, is currently being built so that the Batwa can demonstrate how they used to live in the forest – check back for more details.Contact UWA: •    Mobile: +256 772 686010, +256 772 607784
