It originally included Gombe State (which became a distinct state in 1996) and has about 20 local government areas. According to tradition, it was named after a hunter known as ‘Baushe,’ who settled in the region before the arrival of Yakubu, the first traditional ruler of Bauchi emirate (founded 1800–1810).
Although the state adopted Sharia Law in 2001, that hasn’t stopped the state from living up to its name as the “pearl of tourism”. Besides being known for the Yankari Game Reserve, it has other sites open to the public. And yes, cameras are allowed in places like the Emir’s Palace.
