5 Awe-Inspiring Waterfalls To Visit In Nigeria

Magical, splendid and awe-inspiring are the sight of waterfalls in Nigeria. As water cascade from the rocks from calculated  a height, the whole being of visitors is often arrested as the eyes shimmers with so much joy in appreciation of this incredible gift of nature. Most people never want to leave as they set up camp to have a lifetime interaction with nature. It’s an experience that every Nigerian must have. These waterfalls cut across the country.

In line with this, Jovago.com, Africa’s No 1 hotel booking portal rolls out five awe-inspiring waterfalls in Nigeria where you do not need to spend millions to visit!
