It is incredible that over 90% of Dja Faunal's 5,260 sq km landscape has remained undisturbed. The Dja River may partially be to thank for this isolation, which almost completely surrounds the park. Present in the park are five threatened species, approximately 1500 known plant species, 100 types of mammals and more than 300 birds.

The Dja Faunal Reserve experiences an equatorialclimate. August is the coolest month, typically around 20° C and April is the warmest month, sometimes as hot as 30° C. May and September are the peak rainfall months.
