An Adventure To Kwa Waterfalls With Pictures by Bbsharon(f): 2:02pm On Nov 23, 2019
About 3 weeks ago I went on a kind of jungle adventure with some friends to Kwa Waterfalls in Cross River State.

Kwa Waterfalls is located at Anegeje village in Akamkpa Local Government area of Cross River State, Nigeria.

Best bet to get here is either you chatter a cab to take you down from calabar or go through the Oban bus route using the public transport.

So, I did a compilation of our experience in the video below.

I feel I shouldn't just be doing a writeup of my experience alone.

So, yea this my first YouTube video and it's not ghen ghen grin anything, but please Do watch, like and subscribe smiley

Basically, and according to Google map the waterfall is about 41km from the main city of the state capital Calabar and is also part of the Oban division of the Cross River National Park.

The waterfall is surrounded by very beautiful lush green environment and an eye catching, sparkling natural water. The water flows down a steep gorge down to a stream that forms the main Kwa River at a very high current.

There are about 234 steps that leads down the valley where the fall is. Come with a well gripped footwear, a light water bottle, a back pack to keep your phone and other items. You will be needing all your hands, legs and body to climb through and avoid falling.

There is a tour guide at the fall... A rastafarian who is probably tired of the job and now passed on to his young son of about 14/15years of age. This boy served as our tour guide and I tell you he was exceptional. Has a good command of English and very courteous. He understands the terrain well and was helpful in helping us follow the right tracks.

The boy on the red shirt was our tour guide...

Gate fee and tour services stands at 500naira per head.

Nothing going on around the area, the little art museum at the reception has been abandoned. The place needs a good face-lift and renovations. A cleared path to the falls should be made and the steps well maintained.

Best time to visit is during the dry season, if you really wish to have a full and up close view of the cascading waterfall with your soul and body still together.

We left calabar at about 9:45am and got to Akamkpa at about 10:55am. Less than an hour drive if only the road out of Calabar to the next town is in good condition. The road is in a very bad state.

Surprisingly, on getting to the next town, Akpabuyo, the rural roads were considerably good up to the point of the waterfall location.

Do NOT come with any slippery foot ware nor too much baggage. The fall has this alluring vibe to it, but you have to be very careful and be sure you have got your stamina and strength together before venturing. It's either you hold firm and be in control or you loose grip and find yourself rolling down the steep.

In all, I had a good team of adventure lovers and it made things quite easy for us.

Yes, that's the fastest route.

Bb the travel girl. Nice pictures. When will you reach Obudu and Tinapa? cheesy

Try to take more pictures of the scenery without (much) people in the background. Helps us appreciate it better.

Your friend will make a good model. Going by her poses- she doesn't like to be caught unfreshgrin grin

I always get cold feet when I think about touring other states in Nigeria, I always end up in a hotel, chilling by the pool and feeling secured, I don't want to end up dead because some illiterate decided to use me as a guinea pig to test some stupid belief, I have trust issues too so. cry
