  • Kwa Falls today is a shadow of itself. This natural reserve used to be a nice place to hangout with family and friends but today it's dilapidated with no existence of government or private sector. The resort house is dilapidated and the roofs have fallen off. The steps going down to the foot of the waterfall is broken and needs replacement. Government or the private sector needs to wake up and give this place the attention it deserves. It's a tourist attraction that shouldn't be left to waste.
  • Awesome place..lots to explore.... Lots and lots to explore. Rock climbing included.... Best to go just before at the beginning of the rainy season about early May. Incredible view and scenery.... good to get there early so you have enough to take pictures.. explore the rocks...picnic. The water fall is spread across a vast array of land... So there are many small individuals falls. Please be well dressed for the trip... Joggers and non slippery footwear. It's a 45min drive from main Calabar town... You'll pay a token of N500 for access and additional N500 if you want to get a tour of the rock....
