Directions to Yankari National Park
The Yankari National Park is located in the north-eastern region of Nigeria and is revered to as the Best Park in Nigeria for spotting wildlife. The park is home to a variety of creatures including herds of buffaloes, waterbucks and bushbacks as well as baboons, hippos, lions and a strong community of elephants. The park is also a fantastic location for birdwatching.
Park visitors are permitted to use their own vehicles on the condition that they take a guide; alternatively, the park runs safaris twice daily. The safaris last for two hours and depart at 7:30 am and 3:30 pm. We recommend visiting between December and April for the best animal spotting. This is during the dry season when the animals gather around the Gaji River.
Another popular attraction in Yankari is the Wikki Warm Spring. It is located close to the park campsite and has crystal clear waters with a consistant temperature of 31°C. The spring flows into a lake which is a popular swimming spot.
For those who want to extend their stay accommodations are also available in the park.
