We camped here for 5 nights and are so glad we went (the cabins look very comfortable also). From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were welcomed and looked after by the friendly staff and volunteers. The work they are doing there is fantastic, and to be able to see the Drills and chimps up close... More

I have been staying at Drill Ranch at four different occasions between 2008 and 2015. Every time has been great. The real merit of the place is that it is inside the forest - not close to it. It is basic and rustic but comfortable. It is not like many other places: the shower is about 50 m from the... More

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. Each experience is different but the feeling is the same: It brings tears to your eyes. Even hardcore and... More

.i can't regrate being here. This is a touchable place easily called home away from home where nature has its pride and beauty. This is an undulating plane where animals are managed with comfort and they live like humans. Their hospitality and Staff relationships is superior and undoubtable. Pls, try and give it a trail.

Was here in 2010 but I have to write how amazing this place was! Unfortunately, did not stay overnight but I can imagine it must be a real treat! Accommodations are simple and cheap enough. It's nature at its best! Stayed for a couple of hours to explore the conservation, see the Drills and the chimps. It's the passion for... More

A very special place - deep in the forest, sleeping with the forest noises around you, eating with a tame civet at your feet. The guys here do enormously valuable work and we were privileged to be part of the camp for a day - joining the morning meeting, chatting to the keepers. There is huge passion for the animals...

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
