Garamba National Park

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Garamba National Park is a national park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1980. It was labelled a site in danger in 1980, removed in 1991, but regained the status in 1996 due to poaching and a fall in rhino numbers.


Garamba is home to the world's last known wild population of northern white rhinos, but it has suffered greatly from Congo's decades-long civil war, with heavy poaching and 50,000 refugees fleeing from Sudan into the park.


Designated a national park in 1938, Garamba National Park is one of the oldest on the continent.

Remnants of the Lord Resistance Army have been attacking civilians in this area; therefore tourists should take adequate precautions or avoid travel altogether. These attacks are often brutal and without warning.
