Located in the Anegeje Village, Cross River National Park, about 25 kilometres from the city of Calabar, is an area of outstanding natural beauty; the Kwa Falls.
The falls are at the headwaters of the Great River Kwa, cutting through a steep and narrow gorge surrounded by a tropical mangrove forest, made up of mahogany, ebony and spruce trees, supporting a vast array of wildlife. The Great Kwa River originates in the Park's Oban Hills where it flows southwards, draining the east coast of Calabar, ending up at the Cross River Estuary.
The surrounding forest is a fantastic spot for spotting monkeys in their natural habitat and is a popular destination for photographers.
A staircase of 234 steps from the plain down to the resting place of the waters characterises the falls.
