Garamba National Park
Garamba National Park is known for two of the big 5: rhinocerous and elephants, albeit for different reasons. The park, located in Orientale Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo, was established in 1938, and declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1980. In the 1960s, park rangers and trainers began domesticating elephants to be able to be ridden by tourists. Garamba National Park, like many other parks in the region, has also been adversely affected by poaching. It was formerly the last known home of the Northern White Rhinocerous, and the park was added to the list of World Heritage sites in Danger in the 1990s.
