Today we will start our Big 5 Safari with our depart from Kampala to the northern part of Uganda with a stop at the Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. This 70sqkm sanctuary is a home to over 20 white rhinos and its main purpose is to reintroduce rhinos to Uganda. This is a very nice opportunity to observe the rhinos in their habitat at close range while on foot. And after this we shall have a lunch stop and thereafter proceed to Murchison Falls National Park.
