  1. Obudu is a no no no no.
    The above pix is a very old pix.
    There is nothing there. It’s a shadow of the above pix. Nothing is there and nothing is working. I was there last month (August 2015)
    I say this in all honesty, there is nothing in Obudu. Don’t bother wasting your time and money going there.
