Onigambari Forest Reserve Description

About Onigambari Forest Reserve

The Onigambari Forest Reserve was declared from Ibadan Forest Reserve by a resolution of the Ibadan city council passed in September 1899. A month later, the Mamu portion was added and to the government by deed of gift. Both sections were consolidated to form Gambari Forest Reserve in 1953 making a total area of 125.62 km2.
This is a forest reserve known for its untamed wildness and the abundance of nature. A place that holds interest because of the different species of trees and plants, it is a great place for nature daredevils who seek a thrilling adventure exploring the wonders of a forest untainted by man. Onigambari Forest Reserve is located between latitude 7°261N and longitude 3°51E. The plot lies within Gambari Forest Reserve about 17k m south-east of Ibadan on the Idi-Ayunre-Ijebu-Ode road, Oyo State. It was laid about 2k m away from the nearest road well obscured by some forest fallows in the neighbourhood.
