Calabar and Afi Mountain, Nigeria

Calabar and Afi Mountain, Nigeria

One of the highlight to tour around Nigeria is to visit The Drill Rance in Afi Mountain area at Nigeria. As usual, the guidebook misleading information and the harsh environment in West Africa disappointed me! There’s a very bad landslide which completely destroyed the canopy and waterfall around Afi mountain area and we could only visit the Drill Monkey for 30 minutes! So as the local motorbike people tries to rip us off. We see NO monkey, NO waterfall and NO canopy…but the whole journey was still an awesome experience:)

We passed by the town-Calabar before we hit the bumpy dusty road to Afi Mountain. It’s a modern city with No character at all. People are all westernized without any African element added into it(unlike all the beautiful African clothing in Senegal and Gambia)


With lots of unimpressive monuments….

It’s nice that we finally arrive the JUNGLE!

And the road to Town is beautiful. It’s like another Butterfly Walk!

And finally I took a picture of the butterflies drinking water!! It’s SO hard to capture this Precious Moment:P

And having fun playing with the local kids while waiting for the people from the Drill Ranch. But then after they came and told us all the canopy and waterfall was wipe out by a landslide and we can only see them feeding the Drill Monkey for 30 mins. We decided to just try to see this endangered monkey in Cameroon because the local is trying to rips us off again with the taxi-moto fair!!
