Rhino Fund Uganda opened Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary in a private 70-sq-km reserve, 170km northwest of Kampala, about 30 years after poachers shot the nation’s last wild rhino in Murchison in 1983. There are now 22 southern white rhinos roaming the savannah and wetland.

In 2005, Rhino Fund Uganda opened this private 70-sq-km reserve, 170km northwest of Kampala, about 30 years after poachers shot the nation’s last wild rhino in Murchison in 1983.

There are now 22 southern white rhinos roaming the savannah and wetland in Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, many of which were born in the wild in Uganda. A guide will lead you on an up-close encounter.

The long-term goal for these magnificent beasts is to reintroduce them in Murchison Falls and Kidepo Valley National Parks. While tracking rhinos on foot sounds a bit foolhardy, the fact that they’re in the company of armed antipoacher rangers 24 hours, means they’re well and truly used to human presence.
