3. AGBOKIM WATERFALLS.

Beyond the noise of the city, bustling commercial streets, fumes from automobiles, and blasts from loudspeakers, there are places that you step into and you feel as one with mother earth. One of those places is the Agbokim waterfall.

Popularly called the seven-faced wonder of nature, it is located in Cross Rivers state Nigeria, over 300 kilometers from the state capital (Calabar) and 17 kilometers from the Ikom Local Government Area of the state.

Agbokim Waterfalls is most spectacular during the rainy season when on a lucky day you have a chance to see the rainbow across the face of the waterfall. Its proximity to neighboring Cameroon offers a unique opportunity for cross-border experience.

4. GURARA WATERFALLS.

Located in Gurara, a local government area of Niger State, North Central Nigeria. The waterfalls are approximately 30 meters in height and it lies on the Gurara River along the Suleja-Minna Road.

It is one of the easiest waterfalls to navigate in Nigeria, and it’s just 3 hours away from the nation’s capital, Abuja.

Advice but not advice: it is best to go at the beginning of the rainy season when the falls aren’t too aggressive.
