The Conservation journey in Mgahinga ranges begun in the 1930s when the colonial imperial British government declared Mgahinga as an imperial crown reserve. But, in the 1950s the low lands of Mgahinga ranges were encroached on by the local communities and turned into farmlands. The post-independence period of the 1960s to early 1980s was followed by political instability in the young republic of Uganda, this, therefore, gave rise to acts of poaching, encroachment on the wildlife reserves.  Mgahinga reserve also saw a sharp decrease in its wildlife population just like all other game reserves in the country did.

After the end of the liberation war in 1986, peace prevailed again in Uganda and efforts were made to protect wildlife wherever it was, this, therefore, led to the recruitment and training of game rangers that were to protect these reserves. In 1989, all poaching wire traps that had been put in the mgahinga game reserve were dismantled and rangers were deployed to protect it. in 1991, the government designated Mgahinga as a game park with an area coverage of 33.9sqkm making Uganda’s smallest game park BUT a great Uganda safari / Uganda Tour destination making dreams come true for all travelers to Uganda pursuing various wildlife safaris in Uganda featuring a Gorilla Safari tours in Uganda a part of the Africa Safari tour of alife time .
