A visit to the sanctuary can be the only opportunity for you to track these fierce animals on foot guided by the ranger who feeds you with all the information about their natural history. It is a perfect day trip from Kampala to any short stay visitor.
Located half way between Kampala and Murchison falls National Park, the drive to the sanctuary usually takes about 2.5 or 3hrs. We depart for the trip at 7.00am to have a drive through the famous Luweero triangle remembered for the brutal massacres during the Bush war that brought the ruling government into power in 1986. Luweero is our usual stopover point for the purchase of fresh fruits for the day before reaching Nakasongola. Nakasongola is part of the country's cattle corridor and during the drive through, you are able to view cattle grazing the short grasses in open deciduous savannah woodlands.
On arrival at the sanctuary, you are briefed about the sanctuary and the Rhino tracking activity with the dos and don'ts. Tracking usually takes 2 hours and on return, we drive to Kabalega Diners for lunch, rest for a few minutes after lunch and there after drive back to Kampala/Entebbe.
