Situated 17 kilometres from Ikom, close to the Nigeria-Cameroon border, is the Agbokim Waterfall; a collection of seven cascades which pour over a cliff creating an impressive seven-part waterfall. If you are lucky you will catch the falls at a time when the mist drifting from the crashing water conjures up rainbow colours.
The waterfall is located on the Cross River, enclosed in a lush, tropical rainforest. It is the ideal spot for a picnic or to escape to a tranquil spot to be with nature. The river descends through the forest via picturesque terraces, providing plenty of secluded spots that are perfect for bird watching or just enjoying the sound of the water.
Being such a spectacular sight, the falls have been selected as part of the country's 'Seven Wonders of Nigeria' project, and this natural commendation will bring further touristic value to the area. The government is aiming to upgrade all the amazing tourist sites in the state, and this means Agbokim Waterfall could become more visitor friendly in the coming years - perhaps even seeing the development of an eco-resort here.
