NOK Village


A trip to the Nok Village in Kaduna State launches visitors into physical romance with the so-much-talked-about culture of the Nok people. The culture has been known for over 2,500 years. The Nok culture is better appreciated appraising the excavations made by the numerous scholars and research.

Terra cotta, heads of animals and man; and weapons of war are abundant on display.

Obudu Cattle Ranch


Obudu Cattle Ranch is located in Cross River Slate towards the Nigeria-Cameroon border in the South-East. The Ranch is over 1,524m, has temperate weather condition to make sure green vegetation and grazing of cattle round the year. The Ranch is a tourist delight as a result of its divergent attractions. There are a natural swimming pool, horse riding, beautiful waterfall to behold, gorilla camp, bird watching, sporting facilities and accommodation.
