Yankari National Park is a large wildlife park located in the south-central part of Bauchi State, in northeastern Nigeria and is home to several natural warm water springs.
Yankari was originally created as a game reserve in 1956, but later designated Nigeria’s biggest national park in 1991 and is described as the most popular destination for tourists in Nigeria.
The reserve plays a crucial role in the development and promotion of tourism and ecotourism in Nigeria.
It is also one of the most popular eco-destinations in West Africa.
