Obudu Mountain Resort formerly known as the Obudu Cattle Ranch is a ranch and resort on the Obudu Plateau in Cross River State, Nigeria.
It was developed in 1951 by Mr. McCaughley, a Scot who first explored the mountain ranges in 1949.
He camped on the mountaintop of the Oshie Ridge on the Sankwala Mountains for a month before returning with Mr. Hugh Jones a fellow rancher who, in 1951, together with Dr Crawfeild developed the Obudu Cattle Ranch.
Although the ranch has been through troubles since, it has very recently been rehabilitated to its former glory. A recently added cable car from the base to the top of the plateau gives visitors a scenic view while bypassing the extremely winding road to the top.
Obudu Mountain Resort is a nature lover’s perfect paradise.
The much best time to visit is October to February, when the flowers are in bloom, the sky is clear and the air is cool.
This is ideal weather for trekking over the high ground and enjoy the extensive views that stretch out across the plateau.
