National Park of the Upper Niger is in the northeast of Guinea.


The park covers around 6000 square km of which 600 square km comprise the core area. The park is one of the few dry forests left in West Africa. It protects important tracts of forest and savannah, and is considered a conservation priority for West Africa as a whole.



Savannah is dominant comprising areas of woodland and bushland. There are smaller areas of riparian forests along both the Niger and Mafou Rivers. The whole area is subject to frequent fires during the dry season.

Flora and fauna[edit]

Mammals are the main draw with lots of chimpanzees. Other interesting specie include lion, African manatee and Gambian mongoose.
