ZIWA RHINO SANCTUARY

The only place in Uganda with wild rhino

Ziwa Wildlife Sanctuary

Located north of Kampala in the Nakasongola district of Uganda, The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is the only place in the country with wild rhinos. Currently home to twenty two southern white rhinos, the sanctuary offers rhino trekking, shoebill trekking, canoeing, bird watching, and night walks.

Visitors may also spot a range of other species including Uganda kobs, oribis, bush bucks, and water bucks. The prehistoric-looking shoebill stork is one of the most sought after birds in Uganda, and the sanctuary is one of the only places where they can almost always be seen. Visitors can see over 300 bird species along bird trails through the woodlands, swamp and savannah. Don’t miss the opportunity to take a guided night walk, where you will be introduced to extraordinary night sounds and sensations, including a beautifully clear night sky and several nocturnal animals.

Best time to travel to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary

The best time to visit Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is during the dry seasons from December to late February and from June to September. This is the time the animals congregate around water, making them easier to observe.

Wildlife

Other than rhino you can also spot Ugandan kobs, oribis, bushbuck and waterbuck.
