Yankari, 225 km east of Jos, is Nigeria's best national park for wildlife viewing. The park still has significant numbers of buffalo, waterbuck, bushbuck and many baboons. The biggest draw are the 500 elephants. You can also do excellent bird watching. The best time to see animals is from the end of December to the end of April, before the rainy season when the thirsty animals gather at the Gaji River. The Wikki Warm Spring is located near the campsite at the park. This crystal clear water has a constant temperature of 31 °C. The lake is 200 m long and 10 m wide.
