About

Become part of an amazing initiative to reintroduce rhinos to Uganda, previously hunted to extinction in the 1980s. This rhino sanctuary has been going from strength to strength since 2005, and is now home to over 20 wild rhinos. As a volunteer, you will help in the general tasks of the sanctuary to help these incredible creatures enjoy life in the wild. Once your service is done, you will enjoy a 3 day safari to explore other incredible areas of the country.

The conservation area has tasks you will get involved in including:
- Rhino monitoring
- Game spotting
- Maintenance patrols
- Reforestation
- Outreach programs
- Community education.

As you volunteer you will meet interesting people and enjoy a completely different way of life, living in the rural African bush.

After 10 fantastic days, you are rewarded with a 3 day safari to search for leopards, lions, elephants and the rest of the Big 5. Then you will take a cruise down the Nile to the spectacular Murchison Falls.
