Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is the very proud home of the only rhinos presently found in Uganda. At the moment there are about 15 white rhinos on the sanctuary, including the new addition born last April, a calf called Luna to rhino mum Bella.

This successful venture has seen many calves being born there and offers hope of eventually reintroducing rhinos back into the wild in Ugandan National Parks.

The sanctuary is under constant 24 hour surveillance and the rangers do a magnificent job of protecting these pre-historic creatures.

With Safari Joe you can visit Ziwa and go on a 'Rhino Encounter' where you will walk as a small group with a trained ranger to look for rhinos. Once you have found the rhinos you will have a chance to observe them at a very close yet safe distance. Due to quite poor eyesight, a rhino will allow you to get reasonably close without being too worried.
