There's nothing like it. Like all things natural, it takes your breath away. You're excited to go up the winding path that leads to the top of the mountain, see the drills-a specie which is practically non existent and extinct today.

Nigeria is not known as a tourist destination however the experience at the Afi Drill Ranch was on a par with a similar destination I visited in Panama. Primarily a conservation centre for the elegant Drill monkeys, the ranch has six screened cabins which are rented out for about £15-£20 per person per night. It is definitely a location for... More
