Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary

 +254 708 717259
  Unnamed Road, Uganda
The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary has an interesting history. Because of the great variety of wildlife in Uganda in the early 20th century, the tourism industry thrived. One major reason for the tourism boom was the sizeable population of Rhinos roaming freely in Kidepo and Murchison Falls National Parks.

The Colonial government and Uganda’s first government after independence maintained tough policies against the poaching of white Rhinos. Everything turned upside down because of insecurity in the late 70s and early 80s creating room for unprecedented poaching that eventually wiped out wild White Rhinos in Uganda’s National Parks. However, everything was not lost. The Rhino Fund Uganda was formed in 2005 and worked in coordination with the Uganda Wildlife Authority with the goal of reintroducing White Rhinos to the national parks in the future.

In order to realize their long-term goal of introducing Rhinos back into the Uganda wild, it was thought that a sanctuary needed to be set up that would be used as a safe breeding ground away from poachers. The Ziwa Rhino sanctuary was launched starting with 6 Rhinos (2 from Disneyland America and 4 from neighboring Kenya) enclosed in land measuring 70 sq Km and protected by 2m high electric fences.

The sanctuary is located in Nakasongola District along the Kampala – Gulu Highway just before reaching Murchison Falls National Park. It currently has a total of 22 white Rhinos thanks to the efforts of highly trained and committed researchers, rangers, and donors.
