Situated on a relatively flat plateau on the Oshie Ridge of the Sankwala Mountains, Obudu Mountain Resort is approximately 134 square kilometers in extent. It is at an elevation of around 5 200 feet (1 576 meters) above sea level, and enjoys a cool temperate climate and a landscape of rolling grassland and Montana forests. It is an area of idyllic tranquility, beautiful scenery and breathtaking views.
• Margaret Ekpo International Airport, Calabar, 45 minute flight or five hour drive away.
• Bebi Airstrip 45 minutes drive to the Resort.

 

The resort has a helipad for access by air. At the base of the hills on which the ranch is located lies a newly built world-class water park with state-of-art swimming facilities and water slides for children, teens and adults.

The hilltop (cattle ranch) is about 11km of winded road from the base and can be accessed by either the cable-car or the road. The ranch has numerous pleasant mountain-area and country-side views.

Obudu is one of the finest and most magnificent tourist destinations in the world today. Deep in the tropical rain forest of Cross River State, presents an area of idyllic tranquility and an enchanting scenery.

Indeed, it is a tourist heaven with its inviting natural endowment to be explored. Obudu has increasingly become popular amongst tourists, adventurers and event planners from all around Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

With over 160 accommodation categories, made up of standard rooms, executive rooms, huts and chalets to a presidential apartment, amidst its extreme eco-tourism potentials, there’s more than enough space for other activities.

Driving to the resort can be quite exhilarating, especially the last ten kilometres of winding road with its 22 bends, including the famous Devil’s Elbow halfway along.

In 2005 a state-of-the-art cable-car was built with 34 cars, each carrying eight people and covering a distance of four kilometres up through the clouds offering inspiring and dramatic vistas of green rolling hills.

Features

Obudu holds its annual mountain race in November for more energetic people with a cash prize attracting competitors from across Nigeria and internationally.

Although Obudu welcomes visitors all year round; the much best time to visit is October to February, when the flowers are in bloom, the sky is clear and the air is cool. This is ideal weather for trekking over the high ground and enjoy the extensive views that stretch out across the plateau.

This is an African Sun resort, so expect the comfort and top-class service, which the group is famous for. Visitors can take the advantage of the fully equipped gym and floodlit tennis courts (there is also a squash court and 9-hole golf course), before relaxing at the terrace restaurant complete with blazing log fire.

This may be tropical Nigeria, but remember you are at the top of a mountain!

Cable car
This is the biggest attraction at Obudu and it runs from the entrance of the resort at the bottom of the mountain up to the ranch resort at the summit.

It is claimed to be the world’s longest cable car system.

Water park
An ideal spot for tourists to take a dip in the cool and crystal clear waters. Here you experience the thrill of state-of-the-art water slides, or the relaxing effects of the Jacuzzi.

African huts

Becheve Nature Resort
