Garamba National Park is a national park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Understand

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.

History

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