2-Day Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary and Shoebill Safari

The Only place in Uganda that is home to one of the big five, the rhino. Not just any other giant but the second largest of the land animals, the Southern White Rhino. Additionally, Ziwa sanctuary is home to at least 40 mammal and reptilian species. They include monkey, antelope, hippopotamus and crocodile. At the sanctuary you can enjoy birding, canoe rides and nature walks. Other than the rhino track, look forward to ‘a faceoff’ with the beautiful archaic looking shoebill.

Itinerary

Day 1 – Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary

You will be met by our wonderful Tour Guide from the airport or your Booked hotel. Depart in a customised pop-top safari minibus/ 4×4 Land-cruiser. Arrive at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary around midday. Check in to your accommodation and enjoy a leisurely lunch.

At around 2pm you will set off for your Rhino tracking with an experienced Rhino Fund Uganda ranger. The total tracking time will vary according to where the rhinos are currently situated within the sanctuary but you will be able to enjoy an hour in the close vicinity of the rhinos once found. After you have finished tracking you will return to your accommodation, where dinner will be served.

Day 2 –  Bird watching ShoeBill stork

Early Morning at 6:00 One of the most sought after birds in Uganda is the Shoebill Stork. Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary affords a rare opportunity to observe these prehistoric looking birds which nest within their wetland. Water birds are plentiful and this early morning canoe safari is a must for anyone who loves nature or is interested in birding. Your canoe trip should take between 3 to 4 hours.

12.00 Enjoy an early lunch before returning to Kampala. You should be back in Kampala by 16:00, depending on traffic conditions on the day.

Sedrick was unique and stood out from the rest in the high quality communication he provided since the first inquiry. He called me to provide information about the itinerary and see if I had any questions even before booking the tour. We communicated through WhatsApp for any other questions that came to mind after that call. After picking me up from the airport, he and Pilot (additional tour guide) provided plenty of information about the country to give me some context and we started our long drive to the impenetrable forest. The food was delicious with many options; the accommodation was very clean with exceptional service; and the transportation from Entebbe to Bwindi park was very comfortable (although long). As a solo female traveler, both tour guides (Sedrick and Pilot) did an exceptional job at enduring I accomplished everything intended to in Uganda, and always made me feel safe. I highly recommend to book your safari with this company because the quality and professionalism will not let you down.

I was going on a gorilla safari with my friend and this was going to be the first ever safari for the both of us. Luckily, the communication with the office was super easy and we got answers to all of the questions we needed. The driver / guide (Sedrick) was very professional and funny and made our time very pleasant. Also, he had a proper knowledge of the local area close to the Mgahinga national park and he promptly spoke some 7 languages which we thought was super positive. The safari was surely the highlight of out East African trip!

My Team and I did a five day trip, including Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, Murchison Falls and Kidepo. It was truly an incredible experience. Our guide, Sedrick, was knowledgeable, skilled in driving in some challenging settings and just plain fun to hang out with for five days. The lodging was perfect, especially Savannah Lodge. The tents and beds were high quality. The views were spectacular. Meals were delicious and varied. I recommend Ngoni safaris Uganda with all my heart and soul!

Our six days trip was amazing. The driver/guide had an incredible knowledge of animal and bird-life and are so interesting to talk to. His driving skills through lashing rain and massive puddles was admirable! The cooks managed to produce varied and delicious meals from the kitchen, which we ate both at accommodation or roadside when we were travelling from one place to another . At all times we felt safe and well-looked after. All in all, an incredible experience, due not only to the abundance of wildlife we were lucky enough to see, but also to the great efforts put to have our Safari a better one . The safari was full of fun. Traveling with ngoni safaris is my life time memorable experience and I highly recommend it to travellers who would love to visit uganda or EastAfrica for holidays, vacations or Adventure.. Even five stars are too small .
