Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve World Heritage Site

Réserve naturelle intégrale du mont Nimba, Guinea

Transferring data



Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve is a protected area and UNESCO World Heritage Site in both Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire. A further extension of the reserve to include areas in Liberia has also been proposed. The park includes significant portions of Mount Nimba, a geographically unique area with more than 200 endemic species. These species include multiple types of duikers, big cats, civets, Chimpanzees, and several types of viviparous toads.

Mount Nimba serves as refugium for numerous Western African species. Mountains contain species rich tropical forest at the height of 600 - 1000 m and montane grassland at the heights exceeding 1000 m. Here have been found more than 2000 species of vascular plants.

The nearest major settlements are the town Yekepa to the west in Liberia, Bossou and N'Zoo in Guinea.
