THINGS TO ENJOY AT YANKARI GAME RESERVE
This park ones boast of having the highest surviving elephant in West Africa. You also must see other different species of animals like African lion and Buffalos. If you want to get the best out of this savanna, I would advise you to visit during the dry season where the grasses are short and dry. This period is when you visibly see most of the different species of animals. In addition to that, you also get to see over 350 different species of birds. There are lots of animals to see. You may also be careful with the baboons as they are tricky and might want to steal your food. However, dangerous animals like lions are kept afar from human contact. Trust me. This will leave a long- lasting memory after exploring the Savana.
What other thing do you stand to enjoy? Have you heard of the Wiki Warm Spring? Yes, it sounds exciting already, right? It is something you will like to experience. If you have the chance to visit Yankari Game Reserve, try not to miss out on this exciting part of the game. The Wiki warm spring is said to result due to geothermal activity beneath the ground. So be ready to take a warm bath.
Apart from the animals and warm waters, you will also get to see a historical cave which is said to be used by the early men. It is a lovely place to camp with your family. Alongside is a museum filled with rare animal carcasses like Elephant tusks and bones. Also, in the museum are worthy and historical artifacts dated back during the slave trade. If you are visiting Nigeria the first time, try as much as possible to visit this park. It is filled with fun, and I can assure you that it will forever leave a moment in your life

These sites are along the Zion Crayon Scenic Drive and the Zion-Mount Camel Highway.
The canyon is accessed through the Zion Crayon Scenic drive with towering cliff walls on both sides. The road offers the best views in the park, including views up to Angels Landing and the Narrows. There are beautiful scenes here, and you stand to get most of the key attractions along this road. There are shuttle buses to move tourists around the park. However, you can also choose to bike along this road as those shuttle buses are equipped with bikes. In some cases, when the buses are not available, you can drive through with your vehicle.
The other side, which is the Zion mount, offers another incredible view to the park. It provides a dramatic view from one side of the valley to the other. The road hugs the cliff wall as it moves up the mountainside, which passes through a narrow tunnel. Immediately you come out of the tunnel is the Crayon Overlooked Trail. Beyond this point, you will notice another incredible view of the rolling ridge mountain of orange and cream colors. They are lots of fun to have here. Let us move down to the Riverside Walk. This walk is a 2.2mile round trip. It is attractive and offers a stunning view to tourists. You do not need to finish the trail to the end of the river. You can get a satisfactory look at the little you can do. You have a paved trail that passes through the garden to the water edges. Just across the other end of the river, you will find a waterfall pouring from a high cliff. This is a perfect site that offers excellent views for birds and other wildlife.
