In Nigeria today, Yankari Park has distinguished itself to be one of the best parks in the whole world, with a lot of visitors from other countries.

Yankari has taken Nigeria Park to another level of its kind, making Nigeria an international figure as one of the most interesting park to visit.

The park has 110 visitors Chalets at Wikki camp, they are of several categories, including a low income youth hostels, a conference hall, and in-door and out-door sport facilities, a standard restaurant, a natural clear and pure swimming pool (wikki spring water) sports facilities: badmington, table tennis and squash.

The year rounds wikki spring water, the source of river wikki which also serves as natural swimming pool, which is an added advantage to the park.

The open country and villages that surround Yankari National Park are populated by farmers and herders, but there has been no human settlement in the park for over a century. There is, however, evidence of earlier human habitation in the Park, including old iron smelting sites and caves.
In 1934, the Northern Regional Committee made a recommendation to the Executive Council to establish a pilot game reserve in the Bauchi Emirate. This was supported by Alhaji Muhammadu Ngeleruma, a minister in the former northern Nigeria Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Around this time, he had been impressed by a visit to a Sudanese game reserve while on a trip to East Africa. On returning, he encouraged the moves to establish something similar in Nigeria.
In 1956, the Northern Nigeria Government approved the plans for the creation of a Game Preservation area. Yankari was identified as a region in the south of what was then Bauchi Province where large numbers of wild animals existed naturally and could be protected. In 1957 a Game Preservation area was carved out and the area was constituted as a Bauchi Native Authority Forest Reserve.
Yankari was first opened to the public as a premier game reserve on 1 December 1962. Since then, the Northern Eastern State Government and then the Bauchi State Government both managed the Yankari Game Reserve. The park is now managed by the Federal Government of Nigeria, through the National Parks Service.
In 1991 it officially became a National Park by decree 36 of the National Government.
