We are conveniently located 176km (100 miles) north of Kampala on the Gulu highway towards Murchison Falls (branch off at Nakitoma Trading centre). Ziwa is the only place where you will be able to see rhinos in the wild.

Presently the sanctuary is home to twenty two (22) southern white rhinos. The sanctuary has become increasingly popular with tourists; for Rhino Trekking, Shoebill Trek and Canoe Ride, Bird Watching, Night Walk, Nature Walk and Relaxation.


Be at one with nature and its sounds and smells! One of the well trained guides will take you on a walk through our lush bush. Who knows what you will see, the sanctuary is home to a wide variety of animals, birds and reptiles.
