The Kamuku National Park is a Nigerian national park situated in Kaduna State, Nigeria, with a total area of about 1,120 kilometers. The park is located in the western part of Kaduna State, and is just adjacent to the Kwiambana Game Reserve to the north west side and 14km away from main town. Built in 1936, it was established as the Native Authority Forest Reserve of Birnin Gwari under the Northern Nigeria Government. It was upgraded to a national park from a game reserve in 1999. The federal government has been seeking to partner with foreign investors to upgrade the park and other parks in the country. Generally, the park has a flat terrain, sloping gradually upwards to the Birnin Gwari Ridge which is along the eastern boundary. Things that might be of interest in the park to tourists are the Goron Dutse, ruwa Waterfalls, a large isolated iceberg with a very smooth surface, hill made of large boulders piled perfectly on top of each other. The park and the other nearby forest reserves have some of the best preserved blocks of the ecosystem in the country. Animals that can be seen at the park includes roan antelopes, duikers, hartebeest, elephants, baboons, warthog, bushbuck, patas monkeys etc. A visit to the park will make for a memorable visit.
