This 1 Day Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary trip is for those who love the Rhinoceros. The sanctuary is Situated in the central part of Uganda, it is a home to the species of White Rhinoceros. It is located a few kilometers from Kampala. Therefore it is no surprise when it’s listed amongst top day tours in Uganda.
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.
