Gorillas in Nigeria

Nigeria is endowed with Cross River gorillas (CRGs) which are found only in Cross River State, where the government has invested heavily in tourism infrastructure for example, the spectacular cable car up to the Obudu Cattle Ranch Hotel.

However, as yet the chances of seeing gorillas here are slim. Only a hundred or so gorillas survive, divided between three sites – Afi Mountain, Mbe Mountain and Okwango Division of Cross River National Park
