BLESSING AT KWA FALLS
|The Kwa Falls are an hour's drive from Calabar. From there interesting
canoe trips can be taken into the rain forest. Accommodation, restaurants
and bars are widely available in Calabar. Bush-taxis run between Calabar
and the Cameroon border, as well as between Calamar and Lagos. The
Cross River National Park and the Oban Hills are interesting areas
northwest of Calabar.
|pretty much the truth. we did not see any canoe trips but it was a very nice
place. turn at the second mobil station on the way into calabar and bear in
mind that the sign is very small and is primarly directions to the police
station that is on the same road into a plantation. miss world visited the
falls and there is no one much to show you around.
|CROSS RIVERS NATIONAL
It is located in the forest belt of south-east Nigeria. It has two sector, the southern Urban Division
near Calabar and the Nothern Okwangwo Division near Obudu. It is conceived to protect and
conserve the last vestige of the rain forest ecosystem and to promote eco-tourism in Nigeria. It is
about an hour's drive from Calabar and can also be linked through Port Harcourt route.
The ultimate tourism potential of Cross River National Park lies on the development of the Kanyang
Tourist Village to exploit the unlimited tourism resources of the Mbe Gorilla and the Obudu Cattle
The Park is home to many localised species of plants and animals which, include gorilla,drill.
chimpanzee, an gwantibo or golden potto forest elephant, saleginella species.
|NICE PLACE WITH A VERY COPERATIVE GENERAL MANAGER. THE PARK IS NOT READY TO OPEN BUT
THEY ARE PLANNING A OPENING OF SOME SORT FOR EASTER OF 2003. THE PLACE HAS GREAT
POTENTIAL. I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO TAKE THE OPERTUNITY TO DO SOME BACKPACKING AND
SAMPING IN THE RAIN FOREST WHICH IS VERY NICE AND COOL I MIGHT ADD. I SURE A
BACKPACKING ESCURSION INTO THE PARK WOULD YEALD SOME WILDLIFE VIEWING.
|WELL WORTH THE VISIT,
VERY, VERY NICE
|EXCELENT SIDE TRIP FROM IKOM ON THE
WAY TO THE CATTLE RANCH
