It covers an area of about 2,244 km2(870 mi2) and is home to several natural warm water springs, as well as a wide variety of flora and fauna.

Yankari was designated and opened as Nigeria’s biggest national park in 1991. It is the most popular destination for tourists in Nigeria and, as such, plays a crucial role in the development and promotion of tourism and ecotourism in Nigeria.
