ABOUT Afi Wildlife Sanctuary Formerly part of the Afi River Forest Reserve, Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary was established in 2000 to provide improved protection to important populations of several endangered species including the critically endangered Cross River gorilla, the Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee, the drill and the grey-necked rockfowl. Afi comprises roughly 100km² of lowland and sub-montane forest with rocky peaks rising to altitudes of 1,300m. Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary and the surrounding Afi River Forest Reserve constitute one of the largest forest blocks left in Cross River State, outside of the national park. Afi is currently managed by the Cross River State Forestry Commission/Ministry of Climate Change and Forestry. Although the steep mountainous slopes of the sanctuary have largely protected it from logging the forest is frequently damaged by dry-season bush fires set to clear new farms or to flush game. Open areas created by fire are quickly colonized by herb species which form an important staple food for gorillas. On the western flank of the mountain is a large grassland roost of migratory European barn swallows, estimated to contain up to 20 million birds at times and reputed to be the largest wintering roost site of swallows in Africa. Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary is surrounded by 16 communities with a total population of approximately 27,000. SERVICES There are no services rendered here as the Afi wildlife sanctuary is not properly managed.   BEST FEATURES Afi wildlife sanctuary has a beautiful environment filled with all kinds of animals around the forest. BEST TIME TO VISIT Afi wildlife sanctuary can be visited any time of the year. WHO CAN VISIT Afi wildlife sanctuary can be visited by Tourists, Historians etc. SAFETY Afi wildlife sanctuary is not safe at night as there are no security agents around the forest and one needs to be extremely careful.

ABOUT Drill Ranch was founded in 1991. The DRBC is the region’s first primate rehab project. Illegally held drills orphaned by hunting are donated by local citizens or handed over after seizure by authorities; no animals are purchased or removed from the wild. Over 75 drills have been recovered, and rehabilitated to life with members of their own species, after thorough medical screening. In western zoos, drills have reproduced poorly, but the DRBC has recorded over 250 births to rehabilitated wild-born parents and their offspring, making the project the world’s most successful captive breeding program for an endangered primate.
