It was nice and unbelievable how close we could get to rhinos. We saw 5 of them but it was just looking at them and taking photos. They were resting so it was like watching huge rocks. It was fine but it's not like I'm...More

I stayed as part of a four day volunteer programme and can't speak highly enough of this place. We stayed in the campsite which was spacious and had acceptable facilities, it was also regularly visited by Warthogs and Waterbucks! We took the Rhino walks and...More

Visited the snactuary in early April while returning to Kampala from Murchison Falls Park. Guide was excellent and informative but we had a long trek to see the Rhinos. I am not sure if this was because we had to stop out minibus and circumvent...More
Great trek to see rare rhinos in the wild with Budget Safaris Uganda. You will get up to 30 metres close to the magnificent white rhinos that are sadly close to extinction
