Gashaka-Gumti National Park is located in the mountainous region of north-eastern Nigeria adjacent to the international border with Cameroon, and immediately to the north of Mambilla Plateau. The largest and most scenic of all the seven National Parks, this conservation area lies between latitude 6o 55’ and 8o 05’ north, and longitude 11o11’ and 12o13’ east and covers a total area of 6,731 sq.km. Located in Adamawa and Taraba States, the Park is contiguous with Faro and Tchabal Mbado National Parks in the Republic of Cameroon.
The Park experiences varying pleasant weather conditions, depending on one’s location within the Park. These range from tropical dry humid, tropical moist humid in the lowlands to subtropical highland weather on the high plateau around Chappal waddi, Sabere and Fillinga. In fact, the hidden corner of West Africa, that is Gashaka-Gumti National Park, is surely one of Africa’s best-kept secret.
The Park also contains some historic sites one of which is the pre-1918 German fort and garrison top of Gashaka Hill once used as a “Watchtower” by the German military expedition to that area. Graves of some fallen German soldiers could still be seen dotted around the Fort.
