This is the oldest conservation area in Uganda which was first gazetted in 1926. It hosts 76 species of birds and over 400 species of birds. On your way you have a stopover at Zziwa Rhino sanctuary found in Nakasongola where you will come up close with Rhinos which had become endangered during the reign of Amin. This is was as a result of poaching but in the year of 1998 these beautiful animals were reintroduced and breeding programs were then started as a way of protecting these endangered species. The sanctuary now has 13 of them and among them is a unique one called Obama mainly because they have a similar history. Its mother was from the USA and its father from Kenya just like the president himself. You will spend the night at fort Murchison.
