Hot Vacation Spots In Nigeria.
Places to visit in Nigeria.
Nigeria is blessed with so many natural and breathtaking sights. From the beautiful hills and plateaus to the awesome waterfalls. You can’t help but agree that we have certain attractions that are just outstanding and out of this world. This is why it is a bother when we spend money on international vacations when we are yet to exhaust the wonders of the massive reserve of natural and man-made beauties we have locally.
Obudu Cattle Ranch:
A personal favourite and all time vacation spot. This place is simply a wonder of nature. Now known as Obudu mountain resort, it offers both the vacation seeker and the business/conference folks the perfect environment. Nestling at the top of the mountain, the newly named Obudu Mountain Resort is situated on a plateau at 1576 metres above sea level on the Oshie Ridge of the Sankwala Mountains. The temperate climate offers a total contrast and welcome respite from Africa’s tropical heat. Idyllic tranquillity, beautiful scenery and breath taking views make it ideal for the lone adventurer, families on reunion, young couples or holiday groups. The food and beverage are taken at the Terrace Restaurant and Bar which offers a cosy and relaxed atmosphere made complete by the blazing log fire. National and continental cuisines are served to suit all tastes.
The Obudu Mountain Resort offers a fully equipped gym, a golf course, two floodlit tennis courts, a squash court and a natural swimming pool. The tours to view the magnificent scenery and spectacular bird-life are a must for visitors to this part of the world and these tours can be taken on foot or on bicycle. For those who forgot to pack binoculars, the Canopy Walkway which is situated in the trees allows visitors thrilling close-ups of the birds in their natural habitat high above the ground. A major impressive point for guests is Africa’s longest cable car system. At 4 kilometres, Obudu Mountain Resort cable car gently transfers guests (and their luggage) from the tropical climate at the base of the mountain right to the hotel’s reception area on the mountainside which is often in the clouds and is accompanied by an invigorating drop in temperature.
