If you have read my post about how I practice mindfulness then you will know exactly why I visit these types of places. I also talked about ways to find like-minded people by actively doing what you love and if you give me just a penny for every person I’ve met while hiking I’ll probably be 20 quid richer lol.
Growing up in Africa has been a true blessing in itself. The food, the culture, the hospitality, humour and of course beautiful sights and locations to take pictures like these. There’s a lot more to Africa than Safaris. There are so many places here you need to see.
The Kagoro region is very rich in vegetation with hilltops giving you an opportunity to see even further and beyond the plains stretching as far as Jos, a neighbouring town. The settlers here are so kind and hospitable just like most people you find in the rural settlements of Nigeria.
Tourists usually seek consent from the Kagoro Chief before ascending the hills because there’s lots of folklore and stories about heroes and supernatural beings who once reigned the settlement. The Chief therefore offers prayers for a safe passage to tourists to welcome them and open their settlement to them.
This waterfall above is called the Matsirga Waterfalls. It takes its source of spring water from the Kagoro Hills cascading from four other sources. The waterfall is said to be full of mystery and wonders especially how the cave beneath the waterfall puffs off smoke occasionally.
The locals around here talk about how rainbows mysteriously appears at the waterfall usually on Sundays but I’m pretty sure science has a good explanation about rainbows appearing near water bodies. Whatever the case may be, this place is beautiful and I’ll be back.
I have so much more to share from my visit to Africa so be sure to check back for more posts like these to watch me explore.
