We played volleyball and football on the beach-like sandy shores, we hiked up the mountains, had a picnic, took loads of pictures and were thoroughly exhausted when we drove back to Abuja later same day. That was my initiation into Naija vacations.
Asides travelling for fun, I love the stories (sometimes ridiculous myth) behind each tourist attraction. According to oral history, Gurara Waterfalls was discovered by a Gwari hunter called Buba in 1745 before some Europeans discovered it in 1925 after they found it as a recreation centre. Prior to the discovery of the waterfalls by the Europeans, Gurara Waterfalls was worshipped by people living in communities around it. Oral history also has it that Gurara Waterfalls and Gurara River were named after two deities called Gura and Rara.
I think places like these are best appreciated as a group of friends, co-workers, colleagues or family. Not too suitable for single or a couple. The more the merrier.
