2 Days tour to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary

700$ per person

This 2 days will take you to Ziwa Rhino sanctuary for an exclusive white rhino trekking experience and night nature walk to search for the nocturnal wildlife. Ziwa rhino sanctuary was founded with the long term goal of re-introducing white Rhinos back into the Uganda’s national parks as it was in the early 20th century when the population of Rhinos in both Murchison falls and Kidepo valley national parks was big before they faced a massive killing because of their horns in the late 70’s and early 80’s that cause their extinction in the wild. So, Ziwa Rhino sanctuary was set up as safe breeding ground for rhinos and then then reintroduce them back to the wild. The Ziwa Rhino sanctuary started with 6 Rhinos (4 from Kenya the Uganda’s neighboring country and 2 from Disneyland America) established on 70 sq Km land that is well protected from human activities with 2m high electric fences which has given them a favorable environment for reproduction and they are currently about 32 white Rhinos at Ziwa rhino sanctuary with 2 at Entebbe wildlife education center (Former Entebbe Zoo). This makes Ziwa Rhino sanctuary the only place in Uganda where you can meet white rhinos in Uganda and they are members of the big five mammals of the African jungle these includes the huge Elephants, Rhinos, Leopards, Lions and caped Buffaloes. Presently the sanctuary is home to twenty two (22) southern white rhinos.
