Overview & Features

Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is home to Uganda’s only rhinos – making this a must for anyone who has come to Uganda to see Africa’s “Big Five”!

Tracking these enormous creatures on foot through the savannah and swamps is a thrilling experience, and your specialist guide will share his expert knowledge on these impressive animals. The guides know each of the nine rhinos by name, from the huge, battle scarred males to the gentle females resting in the shade with their calves.

The non-profit sanctuary is also home to an assortment of rescued animals – from a pair of colorful grey-crowned cranes to a tiny antelope, making it a wonderful and educational place to visit for both adults and children.

Accommodation is available on site, as well as a restaurant.

    We camped at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary for 2 nights in Sep 2012.

    The campsite is fenced in by Rhino proof stockading, and is necessary as the rhinos come to visit.

    The facilities are basic, but very clean. The restaurant serves cheap, basic, tasty food and nice cold beers.

    The staff are wonderful, incredibly friendly and helpful and the dedication of the wardens who follow the various rhino 24/7 to ensure their safety is outstanding.

    We had a very good guide for our trek who managed to let us see 10 out of the 12 rhino in the sanctuary, despite the very wet terrain.
