Calabar, Nigeria – Heroes Of Adventure

Calabar, Nigeria 

Tucked into Nigeria’s southeastern corner, the capital of Cross River state has a rich history and is well worth a trip. Originally a cluster of Efik settlements, Calabar was once one of Nigeria’s biggest slave ports, and later a major exporter of palm oil. A popular stopover for travellers heading to Cameroon, this tourist-friendly city has an amazing museum and two excellent primate-conservation centres. Learn about primate conservation with the rescued chimpanzees of the southeast’s old colonial port.
