The Semliki River flows from Lake Edward, through the western edge of the great Ituri Rain Forest in Zaire (now DR Congo), augmented by streams from the Northern slopes of the Ruwenzori Mountains--the 'Mountains of the Moon'.
According to Moghazi, main objective of the project is to develop Congo's water resources through preparing a feasibility study over the establishment of a hydroelectric infrastructure on the Semliki River in Congo.
Its main characteristic features are the Congo River and lowland tropical rainforest; (III) The Upper Nile ecoregion, encompassing the tributaries of the White Nile such as the Semliki River and having a subequatorial climate in its southern part (Thieme et al.

Additionally, we sampled the Semliki River approximately 6 km downstream but were discouraged by rangers from continuing due to poaching activity in the area (Figs 4C, 4D).
