1 Day Rhino Trekking Tour at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary Uganda

Safari Overview: 1 Day Rhino Trekking Tour

The 1 day Rhino Trekking Tour to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is a short excursion designed to allow you to track endangered White Rhinos that have been reintroduced to the sanctuary for protection.

Shoebill Trek, Bird Watching, and a Nature Walk are all included in this Rhino Trekking Tour.

Rhino trekking provides a wonderful encounter with rhinos, who are part of Africa’s big five species. In Kampala/Entebbe, your rhino tracking trip begins and ends. It allows you to see not just white rhinos but also a variety of other mammal and bird species.

The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is located 7 kilometers from Nakitooma, in the Nakasongola area, on the Kampala-Gulu route.

For a one-day Rhino Trekking Tour, you’ll spend roughly 3 or 4 hours drive from Kampala to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. This stunning sanctuary spans 70 square kilometers.

Because of its convenient location, it is a perfect stopover for most Uganda safaris to Murchison Falls National Park in Northwestern Uganda.
