The old Oyo National Park covers an area of 2,511 km2 located about 3 hour’s drive north of Ibadan in Oyo State. The southern portion of the Park has dense and open woodland whilst in the extreme north there is drier open savannah woodland where Oyo-Ile (Old Oyo Kingdom) ruins can be found. The dry season from November to April is the best time to observe wildlife in the park. Check-list of animal species includes Elephant, Buffalo, Hartebeest, Duiker, Potas Monkey, Oribi, Kob, Baboon, Water Buck, and Crocodile. The Ogun River, which has it source in the park, attracts a good diversity of birdlife. Basic accommodation facilities exist within the park at Ibuya camp and in Sepeteri.
