  • Well, the part of the cross river national park I went to wasn't so much fun as I'm seeing on some people's reviews. I'm a pharmacy student currently and 7 months ago, it was part of our curriculum to visit the national park (department of pharmacognosy and natural medicine). We went to the park at akamkpa where we were first introduced to a kind of lab were some skeletons and skins of animals were preserved, although the place was kind of small. We didn't really have a good shade outside so we all stayed under the sun while the tour guide briefed us about the place with history which I can't recall any part of. Then we set out into the forest, like inside the park. We walked, climbed, dodged some funny-looking plants, crossed streams and saw a cave. Maybe we toured the forest area because that's what our course entails but we were just passing through the forest while the tour guide gave us details about some plants in there. Mentioning their botanical names and their uses. Funnily enough, some of them were said to be potent enough to cure a lot of diseases people are finding it difficult to cure. We all wondered why research hasn't been carried out with those plants but then again, this is Nigeria where a lot of things are not taken into good consideration, research being one of those things, sadly. We didn't find a good place to pee at the end. I wish we had more fun.
