Garamba National Park in DRC is one of Africa’s oldest national parks and a World Heritage Site. It is the last stronghold for the largest population of elephants and the last remaining Kordofanian giraffe in the DRC.
The park’s immense savannahs, grasslands, and woodlands, interspersed with gallery forests along the river banks and the swampy depressions, are home to four large mammals: the elephant, giraffe, hippopotamus, and above all the white rhinoceros.
In addition to the beautiful white rhinos, Garamba National Park is home to Buffaloes, lions, hyenas, elephants, giant forest hogs, giraffes, monkeys, and other animals which will serve a fantastic game viewing experience.
The park authorities have registered just over 550 bird species in the park. On your next birding experience at this National Park, expect to see the fishing eagle, water thick knee, pied King Fisher, wattle plovers, pink backed pelicans and so many more.
