LIVING - 7 NATURAL WONDERS OF NIGERIA

I was watching "the Spot" on Ebony Life tv on Dstv channel 165, and Ebuka, Zainab and Lamide  talked about the 7 natural wonders of Nigeria. I was so fascinated about how evolving nature can be, so I took to search engines to research about it. This is the festive season, when lots of travelling and sight seeing would be done. Nigeria is richly blessed in terms of culture, landscape, mineral resources, human resources and tourist attractions.

The 7 Natural Wonders of Nigeria project, was designed to draw global attention to what God has used nature to bless us with, they must be "naturally occurring" wonders with breathtaking natural beauty, unique and amazing wildlife. The 7 NATURAL WONDERS OF NIGERIA  includes:


Ogbunike Cave in Anambra State



Ogbunike cave is one of the greatest wonders of nature. Located at Ogbunike, a few minutes drive from Onitsha, the commercial heartland of Eastern Nigeria, it rests on the border of the Niksi River in Oyi Local Government Area, ANAMBRA STATE. Ogba Ogbunike, as the locals call it, has been known to them for a very long time. It is a location where Africans hid from slave raiding parties during the "African holocaust" period. In October 8, 2007, the caves were included in the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List.

 IKOGOSI SPRING WARM


Ikogosi is a small quiet town in Ekiti West Local Government area of EKITI STATE, which has been catapulted to national and international limelight because of the presence of warm and cold springs flowing side by side in the town.
