Abuko has amazingly diverse vegetation for a park of only 105 hectares, party because the stream runs through the centre allowing both river side and savanna species to flourish. This is a birder's paradise with over 250 species of birds. Walking through the reserve animals you may see include monkeys, antelopes, monitor lizard along with the convention project where there are hyenas and Baboons.
Fifty of the most common tree species are labelled and can easily be seen on the various trails which lead through the reserve.
Once arrived at the Nature Reserve we walk through the Gallery forest to the Education Center or Darwin Field Station.
