It offers visitors a good blend of warm and cold temperatures, as it has very temperate weather.
We know what you’re thinking. How could cows be exciting?
But Obudu Cattle Ranch is much more than cows. Sure, its name has “Cattle” in it, but it’s more than that. Way more. It’s a pristine location with so many attractions you’ll never want to leave. From mountain race to the cable car to canopy walkway to almost every sport you can think of, to swimming in the most exotically designed pools, camping in the great outdoors to bird watching (it’s interesting how many species of birds you can identify) and just the most amazing waterfall and water sources your eyes can imagine. Plus the array of lavish hotels that lines the ranch just makes you want to— you know what?
