Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary will be re-opening for visitors on the 10th June 2021. This has been one of the 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 destination 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 also offers an important stop over for visitors to Murchison Falls. 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.

Details on the rates and visiting hours will follow shortly in a detailed briefing from UWA.
