    Help to preserve the survival of rhinos in Uganda

This is an incredible opportunity to witness some of Africa's most alluring and spectacular species in a beautiful setting. Wild rhinos were hunted to extinction in Uganda in the 1980s. The sanctuary was established in 2005 in an attempt to reintroduce rhinos to the country. In these few years amazing progress has been made, with over 20 rhinos now living in the sanctuary.

Project tasks

  • monitoring rhinos and other wildlife
  • game spotting and identification
  • construction and maintenance patrols
  • removal of invasive species and reforestation procedures
  • community education and outreach activities
  • data collection

Accommodation and food

Live on-site at the rhino sanctuary - you may even open your door in the mornings to see the herd waiting for you! You will enjoy three meals per day at the on-site lodge. Food has a western and African influence.

Free time
You can enjoy one day off whilst at the rhino sanctuary. Many volunteers prefer to continue with the work, but if not, there are some lovely things to do at the sanctuary including canoeing, rhino trekking, chilling out in the plunge pool or simply reading a book overlooking the sanctuary.

Murchison Falls Safari
To finish a fantastic 10 days of volunteering, you will be treated to a safari. For three days you will enjoy the Murchison Falls National Park where you will spot other amazing African creatures and the beautiful waterfall. You will be driven to the park in search of elephants, baboons, leopards, hippos, giraffes, lions and buffalo in a classic safari setting.
