The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is located close to the road between Kampala and Murchison Falls, a short 3-hour drive from Kampala. It is the result of efforts to rebuild the Ugandan rhino population. It’s not a zoo, but a sanctuary where the animals can move freely within a safe haven without the danger of poaching.
A visit to this place gives you a rare opportunity to see the Rhinos not only from a vehicle but also on foot. The white rhinos of Ziwa are large but very gentle, so approaching them poses no danger to you, as visitors are guided by a ranger who understands their behaviour
