Geography

The park, which is in the northern part of the Central African Republic, can be divided into three main zones. In the north the Bahr Aouk and Bahr Kameur rivers help create a grassy floodplain, the central part consists of bushy or wooded savanna plains with occasional small granite inselbergs, and in the south is the Chaine des Bongo plateau.

The climate is tropical. June to November is the rainy period, the rest of the year is hot and dry with frequent grass fires.
