Directions to Ogbunike Caves
Ogbunike Caves are a UNESCO Heritage Site in Southeastern Nigeria. Situated in an area of tropical vegetation, they are set amidst the Ogba hills around Ogbunike. Inhabited by colonies of bats, the caves consist of 10 tunnels and a main chamber, which snake their way underneath the hillside. The tunnels are filled with streams and small pools.
The caves have retained the same biodiversity for hundreds of years, and are like a glimpse into another world. Climb over slippery rocks into the main chamber, where you see bats nest high above the cave floor. Test the water and feel the threshold between the warm water that runs from the caves and the cold temperature of the Nkisa River that flows into it.
The rainforest surrounding them is home to alligators, snakes, antelope, deer and porcupine. There is an impressive waterfall at the northwest end of the caves. During the years of the slave trade, people hid from slave raiding activity in Ogbunike Caves.
