Kamuku National Park Kaduna State


The Kamuku National Park is a Nigerian national park in Kaduna State, Nigeria, with a total area of about 1,120 km². The park has a typical Sudanian Savanna ecology.The park is located in the west of Kaduna State, and is adjacent to the Kwiambana Game Reserve to the north west.

It was established in 1936 as the Native Authority Forest Reserve of Birnin Gwari under the Northern Nigeria Government. It was upgraded from a state Game Reserve to a National Park in May 1999, in part due to the success of a community-based project promoting sustainable resource usage, managed by Savanna Conservation Nigeria, a national NGO. The Federal government has been seeking to partner with foreign investors to develop eco-tourism in this and other national parks

Located in Kaduna State, the Kamuku was promoted from a game reserve to a National Park in 1999, in part due to an effort to educate the local community about the use of sustainable resources.The reserve shares a boundary with the Kwiambana Game Reserve: the two are separated only by River Mariga. The park is one of the finest remaining areas of savannah remaining in Nigeria.


The terrain is mostly flat with an enviable biodiversity profile which supports a variety of flora and fauna including the gravely endangered African elephant. The park is also home to baboons, warthogs, antelope as well as several types of reptile, bird, rodent, fish and monkey.

The park is a paradise for bird watchers, boasting over 177 species including several species not commonly found in other areas of Nigeria.Natural attractions in the park include the Dogon Ruwa Waterfalls, the Goron Dutse and the Tsuanin Rema.
