Ziwa Rhino and Wildlife Ranch
The only place to see white rhinos in Uganda
Our White Rhinos
Ziwa Rhino and Wildlife Ranch is the proud home of the only white rhinos in Uganda. Located in Nakasongola district, not only can you find rhinos, but a wide variety of bird species and other wildlife. The wildlife ranch has become a popular destination for tourists looking for adventure. We offer Rhino trekking, birding tours, nature hikes, night-time nature walks and a shoebill trek & canoe ride.
The ranch offers a bar and restaurant where we serve cold drinks and delicious home cooked meals. And if you’re looking to stay overnight, you can choose between our campsite or one of our guest houses.
Aside from white rhinos, we are lucky enough to have a plethora of wildlife at Ziwa, including over 300 species of birds.

Our Growing Rhino Population
The Rhino Re-introduction Project was a joint project between Rhino Fund Uganda and the Roy family. Six southern white rhinos were introduced to Ziwa back in 2006. But, since then we have had 26 successful births, bringing our number to 32. Presently, Ziwa is the only place in Uganda where you can see rhinos in the wild.
Ziwa is conveniently located 176km (109 miles) from Kampala on the Gulu Highway heading north towards Murchison Falls National Park. If you’re driving north, you should turn left at the Nakitoma Trading centre. We are a few kilometres away.
At One With Nature
Ziwa Rhino & Wildlife Ranch offers peace and tranquillity in beautiful surroundings where you can be at one with nature. Whether you’re photographing rhinos or any of the exotic wild birds that can be found here, we’re sure you’ll find your connection to nature.
And if you’re staying in our campsite or one of our guest houses, there’s plenty of nocturnal wildlife activity too. Our infra-red night cameras frequently pick up porcupines, aardvarks and other animals going about their business.
