This resort is run down. but a lovely cool place with wonderful views when no fog/mist. the canopy walk way in their protected forest valley area is not to be missed. For Nigeria accomodation for the independent traveler is pretty good at Abebes £16 or £28 for a room. but don't expect western standards. Hot water for bathing is available... More

The resort is what to talk about because you feel happy after you might have left the place. It was wonderful site seeing for cable car rides from the base to the top of the plateau. it gave me a scenic view while bypassing the extremely winding road to the top in the cable car. The weather condition there changes... More

The mountain resort is mind blowing, though six hours ride from Calabar, the state capital. you need a couple of days to fully enjoy this haven. we spent a day taking a cable car trip and enjoying the water park at the hill bottom. another day spent on facility tour, grotto and canopy walk. the hiking and trip to Holy...

Just arrived today. Wow! The place is mind blowing. We pre-booked our room, so the guy at the reception desk wasted no time to take us to our room-room 243. The room is basic, but kept neat. It met our expectation, though there is need for improvement. A guide by name Friday took us round the resort. Sincerely, the place... More

The mountain resort is excellent. I totally enjoyed my trip up the mountain. And after a day spent hiking, the thickest juiciest steak from the steak house was served! yum yum!

I spent 5 nights here, it was peaceful and quiet. You are sure to enjoy breath-taking views from the cable cars or just hiking. The locals were wonderful tour guides. Phone reception and internet reception were poor, so you can actually get 'lost'. If you are going with a family or in group of 3 couples, i recommend leasing a... More

After a 10 drive (usually 8 hour but that's another story) from Abuja, Obudu was such a pleasant surprise. It rests high up in the mountains and is blanketed in mist in the morning and early evening but at night the stars come out. This place is beautiful. We shared a 3 bed cabin between 2 families and there was... More

The scenery is breathtaking. The food is more than adequate but could be better. My room was small but there are different categories of rooms.I didn't like that there was no WiFi in my room , there was in the reception but that's a good distance from most rooms.Oh, no telephone reception at the foot of the mountain, so note...

Very beautiful resort. Waterpark area was so nice! Tuesdays the park is closed for maintenace. We didn't know that so were only able to walk around the bottom pool/waterpark area. I'm sure the rest of the resort is just as beautiful.
