Yola Municipality


Places of Interest (East)

The historic capital of Adamawa state, Yola is a municipality that sprawls across the hillside of this North-Eastern region of Nigeria. Based upon three sister hills, a series with similar shape and height, the landscape is dramatic and beautiful. The surrounding scenery contains mountains which swell up out of the land and steep river valleys which cut into the topography of the region. At nearby Lake Njuwa, between March and May, a fishing festival brings the town into a flurry of celebration.

Yola Municipality consists of the old historic city (its namesake, Yola) and the more modern development Jimeta, which is the administrative hub of the area. Jimeta has a zoo, market and excellent transport links, while both towns provide a gateway to the attractions of the surrounding region. These include Gashaka Gumpti Nature Reserve, a beautiful area of jungle which is home to our closest cousins, great apes. Stay overnight in the tourist accommodation there, and trek in the day to explore this expanse of wilderness. Alternatively, make a trip to the stark but stunning Mambilla Plateau.
