We found the rhinos in less than five minutes and were able to spend an hour watching then graze in their natural habitat as we took lots of pictures and observed and absorbed everything.
Sarah really enjoyed watching the rhinos and also took pictures with her phone as her camera didn't have any more films because I forgot to put it in her Polaroid.
Ziwa rhino sanctuary is the only place where one can find southern white rhinos in Uganda in the wild. the place is really lovely and well looked after. there are 23 rhinos in total in Uganda and we pray that they continue to reproduce and multiply.
