1 day tour to Ziwa rhino sanctuary- Rhino tracking
1 Day Uganda Rhino Tracking at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary – Ziwa rhino sanctuary’s main activity is tracking for rhinos which are the major attractions there. This and Entebbe zoo are the only places in Uganda where you can see rhinos after they got extinct in some national parks where they naturally lived but were poached for their horns. Besides rhinos, the sanctuary is a home for reptiles, birds, hippos, Uganda kobs, monkeys, warthogs among others. The sanctuary is located in Nakasongola off the highway road, about 170km from Kampala to the eastern direction and it takes about 2.5 hours to reach there. Rhino tracking is done on foot under guidance of a ranger guide.
