The national park of Taza (Arabic: الحظيرة الوطنية تازة‎) is one of the smaller national national parks of Algeria. It is located in Jijel Province, named after Taza, a town near this park.

The park is located 30 kilometers north-east of Jijel. The park includes the caves of Jijel, in addition to sand beaches and many cliffs and grottoes. It is a UNESCO-recognized biosphere reserve,[1] with a varied flora and fauna, including the barbary ape, an endangered primate with narrowly restricted present distribution.[2]
