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...

BBsharon, you just reminded me when I visited there some years ago. That Rastafarian's boy was younger then.

I loved the scenery, climbing the stairs. Did you see the Forest Rangers?

Went via MCC Road, through UNiCem axis.

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.

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.

how can u say Akpabuyo is close to the water falls haba,it's not stop giving a false information Kwa falls location is very far from Akpabuyo local government

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.

The problem with this Country is lack of maintenance on public infrastructures .
Where does all the funds accrued from tourists channelled to that if can't be used to maintain that that worn out structure at the background? Yet ,this is a state that pride herself as Nigeria tourism capital .

So, less than an hour is what? It took us just an hour to get to the fall from Calabar and we passed through Akpabuyo. I really don't understand what you are trying to prove but I won't go back and forth with you again. It's clearly needless.


If you don't know... Know this now that if you passed the usual Akamkpa route to the fall, the distance is usually longer. That is the Akamkpa route you pass on your way from odukpani or Biase local government.

You must be so dull to say that. I wrote from my experience and read other articles online and put them in my own words and you say copy and paste?

Some of you just talk and reason like every one is as lazy as you are.

akpabuyo is not the next town not another local government.... Cross River is bless state but they are yet to get over the oil well seeded to akwa ibom... So many natural resources especially Akamkpa local government but they are living in penury...God help us .

Some of you just want to argue.

After calabar the next place we got to was Akpabuyo... We didn't take the usual Akamkpa route.

Just so you won't put yourself and your love ones in trouble.

The fall is not safe for swimming. The tides are high with very high current especially during the rainy season.

That's rubbish.

The water is not actually falling, I think is a water flow instead.........

It is... It's because it's rainy season now and the tides are very high

Wow! This brought a whole lotta memories,I visited this place in 2009, I was working in UNIcem at Nfamosin then...I didn't really enjoyed it then,I was sore afraid because I was in company of the locales.

Were you the only stranger around?

We saw more of you than the water. I wish you captured the water from its source and how it cascades down to its base. The water is so clean though and I know you had fun. Wish I was in your drew. I love adventure like this

Meanwhile, did you know you can build a really beautiful building using just salt. Check it out http://prodesigners.com.ng/why-you-should-build-your-house-with-salt/

Just so you know most of these places are very dangerous and most especially this. We had struggle taking good pictures and videos. The road was bad and we were terribly exhausted.

A little mis-step and you find yourself in the water or rolling down the rocks.

Nice compilations..
but as a geologist, that I am..
I am more focused on the rocks..
Oban Massif is a basement terrains, so the rocks there should be igneous and metamorphic buh more of igneous though..

What I know is those rocks are very dangerous. Slippery and not stable.

This is what Nairaland should be about.... people sharing their experiences. Is the video perfect?...no... is she a professional?.....no... and are we paying to view?...no... so let's appreciate the freeness.
I never knew such a place existed... but now we know we can plan outings and make the place a popular tourist destination.

@ Op... that's really a rapids... which is more like water flowing down stairs. A waterfalls is more like water free falling from the second floor to the first then continuing.
Was there a fee?..if so how much?... do they charge per head/group/per trip? Do they have refreshments on sale?... toilet facitities?...or you had to ehmmm...dash in the bushes?... which can be the last dash and bring out a search party? Did you drive all the way to the "guide office"?...or had to park some way off and trek? Did you see any animals?..birds?...name?... was the surroundings very quiet?... or there was the occasional ehmmm....roar of nearby lions??
I'm just asking these few questions to help you give us a better coverage of your trip... to fill in what the video didn't capture.
On video.... like someone said earlier... more focus should be placed on the surroundings... afterall... the blog wasn't about ehmmm....perky you and the tourists...it was about the place.

Really ... I was surprised.... the music was pretty good!....and for you the tourists in the car... wasn't bad either.... as if everybody was part of some choir. I just wish some aspiring singers here on NL can sing half as well as you guys!
Looking forward for more of your adventures! Good job!

The beauty of the waterfall is seen more during the dry season.

500naira per head.

No refreshment, no toilets.

There is a parking space in the compound.

Yes, very quiet. Just usual nature sounds and the water.

Birds and lots of insects... Butterflies especially.

Thanks.
