Primate Watch Safaris in support of projects aimed at conserving and re-introducing wildlife in Uganda’s National Parks, offers 1 day excursion tour to Ziwa Rhino and Wildlife Ranch.

Located in Nakasongola 176Kms North of Kampala off Kampala – Gulu Highway is Ziwa Rhino and Wildlife Ranch. This Project was founded by the Rhino Fund Uganda and Uganda Wildlife Authority with the aim of re-introducing Black and White Rhinos in Uganda’s National Parks.

The Majestic animals once found in Kidepo and Murchison Falls National Parks had disappeared due to widespread poaching during the Idi Amin era. Following the extinction of Uganda’s rhinos in the early 1980s during the period of civil unrest and heavy poaching, a sanctuary was established to breed black and white rhinos and restore their populations in Uganda’s protected areas at a later stage. The sanctuary is currently a home to 13 Southern white Rhinos. The sanctuary has overtime become a popular touristic site not only to trek the majestic animals but also an excellent paradise for bird watching, nature walks and just relaxation.
