This is a lovely platue. Green grasses everywhere. The hotels re nice and a bit expensive. you should explore cable car canopy walk way Ranch market Natural swimming pool prayer mountain. (you 'll see Cameroon from this mountain ) Distance from town is terrible. visibility in the ranch is bad (Obudu's inside the cloud) Mobile network sucks too

Obudu is a must visit resort located high up in the mountain range (about 1500m above sea level), giving it a temperate ambience. It is neat and serene with spacious suites at a good price.....plus complimentary breakfast. Unfortunately, it has some minuses. - no intercom, & electricity is not round the clock. - cable car is presently shutdown - water... More

Road trip from Calabar to the resort was promised to be 6 hours it ended up lasting 10hrs and 30mins because the roads were horrible. The mountain views were quite spectacular although the weather was not on our side. The canopy walk and grotto was fun. The rooms at the resort were damp and mouldy, bathrooms with faulty faucets and... More

Great place, great weather, so cold air conditioning is not necessary. Very special place for those who want to get away from the Urban Jungle filled with noise, pollutants, and heart attacks. We had a wonderful time visiting holy mountain, the canopy walkway and the village market. Take your camping gear, games, computers with you. Fortunately, there's high speed Internet... More

From the spiral road leading to the resort to the landscape, the clouds, everything was lovely. Across the other side of the mountain is the Cameroonian border, we went up the mountain and I was actually in the clouds. It was mind blowing. Was beyond excited. The resort itself has a good restaurant with good food and the rooms are... More

An amazing all around this lovely resort set on the summit of the mountains. Really cool and clean air. The rooms are ok, though not that big. They serve great food too. However the wifi is spotty and the environment is not too well kept.

I'll start with the positive- the place is situated among the most beautiful mountain scenery. Absolutely gorgeous mountains views, especially from the cable car (when it's running). We did the canopy bridge and went to Holy Mountain- highly recommended. The biggest negative about this place- poor management!! I can list a whole host of negatives we encountered staying here for... More

One of the best places to get away in Nigeria, high up in the Cameroon mountains. The temperature weather and serene mountain expanse provide such relaxation, many are struggle to leave. Food is great at the Mountain Steak. Go with an umbrella and jacket as the weather often changes without warning. Cable ride from the valley gives a great view... More

“For the more adventurous on a tighter budget, there's also a small guesthouse in the village close to the resort. Ask for Ralph and they should be able to set you up cheap! Since the hiking and views are what you're here for, as long as the room is clean and the bed comfortable it shouldn't matter where you're staying anyway!”
