Africa’s most populated nation with a little over 140million is situated on the western region of Africa. It is a nation that is surrounded by French and English speaking countries. It is rich in vast lands, tropical forests and mineral resources (notably crude oil). The nation is fondly called “the giant of Africa”.
I am talking about Nigeria. Despite the many tales of crises and corruption, Nigeria is a beautiful country and Nigerians are indeed very warm people with a very rich culture. From the Yankari game reserve in northern Nigeria to the Obuducattle ranch in southern Nigeria, the nation is indeed a haven for tourists. Nigeria is replete with breathtaking landscapes and awe-inspiring sceneries. Almost every single of these tourist attraction sites has a story to tell.
I was recently at the Erin-Ijeshawaterfalls in Osun state. It is definitely a site to behold. Amazingly, when you arrive at the falls, it doesn’t look like anything out of this world until you begin climbing the seven levels of the ascending plains of the waterfalls. The view at all the levels is wonderful and the freshness of the water is energizing. However, the last and seventh level is definitely the most intriguing, well that’s if you ever dared the torturous climb.
For most tourists and fun seekers, climbing up to the third level can best be equated to traipsing the snowy steeply mount Everest. Obviously, being at these different levels and just basking in the invigorating freshness of the falls is an unforgettable experience, but guess what? The place to be is definitely the seventh level. Why? Not only does it lie at the peak of the falls, it is also hosts a settlement where many of its inhabitants have lived for several years.
It is commonly said that “the taste of the pudding is in the eating”. So, it wouldn’t be enough to just read this piece, you need to schedule a vacation to Erin-Ijesha waterfalls. I tell you, it’s indeed a sight to behold!
