After loading your bags properlu into the vehicle, you may now proceed on the journey starting with discovering a little about the city of Enugu while in transit.

Beautiful mountains and interesting sights of settlement along your route will give you a basic idea of how welcoming the city of Enugu and Abakaliki are.
Depending on how you recover from your jetlag (if any), you may have to take a break in Abakaliki to appreciate the people and also take some time for lunch (Out of pocket).

You may take pictures along the way, but be careful not to offend sensitivities of persons if you don't have their approval for photographs.
You bet, it has been a fun ride to Obudu and now you yearn much more than when your trip started to see Nigeria's most loved destination. Be guided that you will be out of network coverage as you make the last 60km leading you to the foot of the mountain, at the gate. Ensure that your loved ones are not worried just incase they are unable to reach you for that lenght of drive.
The views leading you to the foot of the mountain is nothing compared to what awaits you as you make your way up the mountain. There are 21 bends on a beautifully meandering road taking you up to the resort. Catch your breath because you will be wowed at the gracious view of nature. We advise you to stay away from looking through the windows if you have phobia for height. Take as much pictures as you can take, but save your battery because more interesting times awaits you at the resort.
You will be checked-in and you can have the rest of the day to yourself for rest and relaxation
Obudu is one place yopu will love to wake up to see a whole new world. From walking in the clouds to hearing sonorous sounds of the birds: the feeling is just awesome and simply irresistible. Anyways, glad that you are able to survive the cold of the night; thanks to the room warmer installed in every room to keep you warm. Obusu mountain resort is one place where you do not have airconditioners installed in the rooms - hope this sends a message.
Its a bright, beautiful and cold morning, you definitely should take a walk around and appreciate the beauty of nature. The gym is open from 6.30am, you may choose to have some work-out or just gaze as the beautiful birds hop from one tree to another, in excitement of your presence.
Depending on what part of the resort you are staying, it may just be ideal for you to take a seat at the Steak house restaurant for breakfast. You may want to get back to your room and freshen up before coming for breakfast, the choice is entirely up to you. Its an unusual place, so don't bother about taking unusual cause of action, just enjoy the moment and be you.
After breakfast, your guide will be ready to start the day with you on a facility tour of the resort. It is a long walk. We prefer you do the walk to appreciate the resort. Ensure you have enough battery life in your phone or camera because its a mix bag of wow and taking pictures.
Your next stop after the facility tour would be the visit to the Holy Mountain. You will do a village walk to get to the holy mountain. The village is a mix of people who are Cameroonians and Nigerians. From the Holy Mountains, you can catch a glimpse of the Cameroon border. There is also a waterfall around there where you definitely would want to spend some time.
After lunch (out of pocket) and a well deserved rest, you will sure get some entertainment at the bar where you can relax, or you choose to gaze into the mountains and appreciate the wonderful landscape around.
There just is so much to see and do on the resort. Your guide will definitely point you to other interesting activities around like horse riding, games and more.
Whatever you choose to do, don't forget to be seated for dinner.
Its yet another brand new day and you already have too much to take in. You probably have had the time to share a few pictures to friends and families. Great move - they should be thinking of doing same sometime. Always remember to show them the path to the Motley experience. We are simply ngood at what we do.
Your walk out routine should be activated and after breakfast, your guide will be waiting to take you on the tours scheduled for the day. A visit to the Becheeve nature reserve where you get to walk on a 60m long canopy walk way. Its a breathtaking experience. Be warned not to leave anything hanging on you as you may NEVER recover it again if it falls into the forest beneath you.
You may get scared at first but nevermind, you should get a grip on the supporting guard to give you some confidence after a few steps. You can spend as much time as you may wish appreciating nature and definitely, the experience keeps you wondering - WHY!!
As you finish from the nature reserve its time to take a trip to the Waterpark. Getting to the waterpark is subject to the cable car working or a car can be arranged to take you down the mountain. Anyways, access to the cable car and waterpark is on Ad-on basis. You definitely want to have that experience. Dont forget to get your swim wear, camera and beverages along with you for a maximum fun.
When you get back, you will have the rest of the evening to yourself. You may choose to spend some time at the Grotto _a natural swimming pool), just incase you didnt have enough time to unravel the waterpark.
Memories are never complete if they are not documented. So take sometime to be sure that your pictures are intact and beautifully taken. You may want to have a retake, just to have the perfect shot.
Dinner is served.
Everything good they say comes to an end at some point. Its now time to wrap things up. Ensure your bags are properly packed and you are not leaving anything behind. We dont want you to have a reason to ruin the beautiful memories you have just made on your well deserved vacation.
Feel free to have your work-out (if time permits) and be ready for breakfast. Your vehicle would be ready to take you from the resort to the start point, except your vacation extends to other interesting attractions in Calabar.
We will be glad to get your review on your experience because the world awaits to hear from you.
It would be most rewarding to share your experience with friends and families because the world deserves a vacation. Spread the word.
