Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary
Min Age : 10+

2 Day Ziwa Rhino & Shoebill Safari

Enjoy one night away from Kampala at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, where you can experience White Rhino trekking on foot and an early morning canoe safari

Tour Details

Departure & Return Location

Red Chilli Hideaway, Butabika Kampala

Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is a collaborative effort between Rhino Fund Uganda (a Ugandan NGO committed to the restoration of Uganda’s rhino population) and the Uganda Wildlife Authority.

The sanctuary offers a secure place where rhino populations can be expanded by breeding, protected from human and non-human predators and gradually be re-introduced into Uganda’s national parks, while at the same time allowing the public to enjoy these majestic animals.  The sanctuary also provides a safe haven for a healthy population of smaller game species, notably the beautiful bush buck and an abundance of wetland birdlife, including the rare and elusive shoebill stork.

This 2 day trip will allow you an afternoon walk in the bush, tracking and observing Uganda’s only White Rhino population as well as the opportunity to experience the wetland wildlife on an early morning canoe safari experience.
