ANOTHER BABY RHINO BORN AT ZIWA RHINO SANCTUARY – UGANDA SAFARI NEWS
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.
The 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).
Ziwa 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.
