Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary re-opened for visitors on the 10th June 2021. This has been much anticipated news in the tourism industry of Uganda. The re-opening of the sanctuary now is a breath of fresh air for the northern Uganda tourism potential. The Rhinos at Ziwa have for some months been the missing piece to complete the big five destinations, especially for visitors to Murchison Falls National Park.
The sanctuary is the only place in Uganda where captive breeding of the white rhinos has been a success and rhino population has gradually increased over time. Ziwa is an important stopover for visitors to Murchison Falls, and we always try to include it in our tours whenever possible, such as with our 14-Day Grand Tour of Uganda. On top of rhino tracking, there are other activities available at the sanctuary which include; boat rides, nature walks and birding. There is also the Amuka Safari Lodge close by which offers the best available accommodation in the area.
