Will the Rothschild’s giraffe survive? Uganda wildlife safari.

Many tourists who come for gorilla trekking safaris in Uganda, sometimes end up with a great interest to explore more wildlife such as giraffes in the country.  Mountain gorillas are mentioned among the rare mammal species in Uganda, but Rothschild’s giraffe (Uganda Giraffe) is a rarest mammal you can ever think of on your Uganda gorilla tour.

The only giraffe species you can find in Uganda is the Rothschild’s giraffe in the northern savannah parks Murchison falls National park and Kidepo National park.

The Rothschild’s giraffe’s coloring of the coat makes it distinguishable from other subspecies.

Wildlife safaris in Uganda

Since the giraffes are very few, if no immediate action taken, Uganda giraffe will vanish in the near future. Massive human population growth, habitat encroachment, segregation of giraffe populations, severe poaching and human-wildlife conflicts are the greatest giraffe threats today.

Recently, the Uganda Wildlife Authority translocated 15 Rothschild’s giraffes to Lake Mburo National Park. This was done basically to ensure the conservation of the species by spreading the giraffe population across Uganda.

In the future, more giraffes from Murchison Falls National Park will be translocated to Queen Elizabeth National Park and the southern sector of Murchison Falls National Park located south of the Victoria Nile.

Uganda safaris

Uganda Wildlife authority has now made it possible for you to see giraffes on your way to Gorilla trekking in Uganda Bwindi impenetrable forest.

When you visit the Ugandan parks, Murchison Falls National Park, Kidepo Valley National park and Lake Mburo National Park, be aware of the fact when you see Rothchild’s giraffes, they are the last of their kind. It should not happen that this unique type of giraffe will vanish in the near future.

Make a Rwanda safari tour to see another species of giraffes called the Masai giraffe in Akagera National Park.
