A national park that offers a fascinating insight into life in medieval times in Nigeria is the Gashaki-Gumpti National Park. It is located within the Chappal Wadi, Mountain, Chappal Hendu and the Mountain of Wind, in the far Northeastern part of the country, occupying certain territories in both Taraba and Adamawa and bordering the republic of Cameroon. Gazetted from two former game reserves, Gashaki-Gumti is now Nigeria’s largest and most diverse National Park. It is situate on a 6,402 kilometre square area. Much of the Northern part of this park is savannah grassland while the South is largely made of rugged terrain, mountainous slopes, deep valleys and gorges and is home to montane forest. There is also abundant river flow and enclaves for Fulani pastoralists at the park boundary.
