The home of the first social club in Nigeria, The Africa Club, and the oldest secondary school in eastern Nigeria (Hope Waddell Training Institution – 1895), Calabar has moved from being “that” city to a desired destination for all.
It is the neck of the woods for voyagers who care to spend time in exotic serenity. A city with the best hotels in West Africa, offering the best cuisines from Ekpang Nkukwuo, Afang soup to the popular Edika-Ikong soup and so on. These meals leave you licking your fingers and asking for more.
Calabar is a city that never sleeps because nightlife in this city begins in the morning. At every corner on every street, there is a structure urging you to come in. This is the home of hospitality, love and joy flows in the air.
A visit to Marina Resort is synonymous to a vacation in Heaven. Tortuga Island, the Slave Museum, the Cinema and the amusement park for children is a jolly ride that words cannot really express. You are blown away in a second, literally one second.
Tinapa business resort which is just on the outskirts of Calabar is an ideal travel location for all especially business people. The Games Arcade, Water Park, Studio Tinapa, Fisherman’s Wharf and Tinapa Lakeside Hotel are locations that leaves your attention scrambling for a feel.
Saving the best for last, the popular Calabar Carnival, where there is a unique display of Africa’s rich heritage through music, dance, drama and visual creativity, is one of many noteworthy points of a festival that lasts a whooping 32 days.
In situations where peace and unflappability is top of scale of luxury, Calabar is the ideal destination. A city so famed for hospitality, its name screams comfort.
