History [ edit ]
Before Ajai was gazetted as a wildlife reserve in 1965, the Ajai Rhino Sanctuary was home to 60 of Uganda's 80 remaining white rhino. The WWF funded an anti-poaching project there in 1962.
In 2002 12 km2 (4.6 sq mi) were carved out of the reserve to make space for human settlements.
