If you venture to Nigeria and go to the North (especially Abuja) AND you love Nature, a visit to Gurara is highly recommended. At the time it was safe but definitely check your country’s Travel guides, local news and do full research before wandering off on your lonesome! (Also, while traveling, be careful who you trust. Only go anywhere AFTER taking full safety precautions.) We don’t want to see your cute face on the news for all the wrong reasons. 😬
Gurara Waterfalls, is a beautiful yet underdeveloped tourist and relaxation destination located in Gurara Local Government, between Suleja and Minna, the capital city of Niger State, Nigeria. It is about one and half hours drive from Abuja. The cut off road that leads towards the fall is newly tarred and the water levels and flow of the falls is the Rainy season is much heavier than seen here. I visited during the Dry season and it was beautiful then. The advantage in going during dry season is that I was able to clamber over the rocks and explore much farther than I normally would. Some braver people even climbed the entire rock face which is usually buried beneath the waterfall.
