It is usually good to take a once in while trip to a cool location just to relax and unwind and there are several lovely places in Nigeria where this can be achieved. However, most Nigerians prefer to travel out of the country rather than patronize their own. I would blame it on no-one but the Nigerian Tourism Department that haven’t done enough publicity on the numerous amazing vacation and honeymoon spots in the country.
Most Nigerians believe they cannot have a great time without leaving the borders but the reality is they end up spending so much on one trip that could have afforded them several trips in Nigeria. There are fantastic places to go to in almost every state in the federation and we are just about highlighting a number of them. So just in case you are planning a trip this season, here are hotels and resorts in Nigeria you should consider.
1. Obudu Mountain Resort – Cross River
The popular Obudu Mountain Resort, which is popularly known as Obudu Cattle Ranch is located in Cross River State and is one of the finest resorts in Nigeria. The resort features mountain villas, unique cuisines, natural swimming pools, a 9-hole golf course, a squash court, a fully equipped gym and other beautiful amenities. It has a beautiful countryside ambiance and cold/relaxing atmosphere. At all seasons, the ranch is usually cold and at night it gets misty and snowy, so while packing for your trip, take enough sweat jackets and hand gloves as though you are going to the U.K in winter.
