The Uganda Safari tour destination of Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary is celebrating the arrival of a beautiful baby Rhino which has become the fourth of its kind at the sanctuary since this year began.
On Dec 26th just a day
after Christmas, the mother Malaika gave birth to a male Rhino bringing
the number of Southern White Rhinos at the sanctuary to Nineteen (19).
This affirms the positive trend of the Rhino breeding programme and
enhances the vibrancy of the sanctuary amongst travelers on Safaris in Uganda.
Sanctuary which was formerly stocked with four (4) mature Rhinos that
included two (2) males and two (2) females that were brought in from
Solio Rhino Sanctuary in Kenya later received a boost of another
breeding pair from Disney’s Animal Kingdom and now eleven (11) years
down the road, it is very inspiring to hear that the number of these Uganda tour species has increased to Nineteen (19).
Rhino Sanctuary is positioned at 176km to the north of Kampala along
the main route to Murchison Falls National Park. The Sanctuary stands
as the only point in Uganda where these species can be encountered in
the wilderness. The travelers interested in Big five have to incorporate
the visit to this sanctuary while planning safaris to Uganda as it is the only point to spot Rhinos which is a member of the Big five along with Lions, Leopards, Buffaloes and Elephants.
