Beautiful Nigeria: Ogba Ukwu Cave And Waterfall, Anambra State

Ogbaukwu Caves presents one of the greatest natural tourist attraction in Anambra State.

But very little is known about the site, which has been in existence for many years.

Hidden away from the busy routes that crisscross Anambra, the Ogbaukwu Caves and Waterfalls are located in Owerre Ezeukala community that borders three other states: Abia, Enugu and Imo.

It is approximately 75 kilometres east of Onitsha.

The Ogba Ukwu cave is considered to be one of the largest cave in West Africa, which will take upwards to two hours to explore.

It forms a deep and complex rock formation with roomy compartments large enough to take in an entire village.

There is one particular compartment, accessed by the aid of stone steps where an old elephant’s foot still stands, long dead and dry.

In another crevice, there is a natural spanner of rock, and in yet another is a gun of stone, as old as the cave.

Guided tours in and around it is a wonder, and leaves a visitor dumbfounded to this wonderful work of nature.
