Geographically located in Niger State on the road between Suleja and Minna, the waterfalls span 200 meters across with a sheer drop of 30 meters. Gurara river is a large tributary of river Niger and it’s always in full spate during the rain seasons.

Apparently in January the falls are a trickle and visitors can swim in clear pools at the bottom of the falls. Visitors can take a day trip to the gushing Gurara Waterfalls – an hour drive out of the city of Abuja.

Composition of Gurara Waterfalls

At Gurara, small streams diverted from the main Gurara river running softly around rocks on top of the cliff, converging from scores tributaries in the narrow rugged pass and dashing out from the cliff with almighty power.

Finally, the water, shining under the sun, as beautiful as fireworks, fall into a pond some 20 meters below before returning to tranquillity.

There are two main streams of waterfalls, but in the rainy season, the whole cliff would be covered with a curtain of waterfalls. To get close to the waterfalls, visitors need to make a daring walk.

Gurara Waterfalls development

There is an ongoing plan to turn the waterfall area into a tourist resort and there were already investors showing interest in the project. Construction of a five-star hotel is also on the agenda.

Apart from the spectacular view of the waterfall, Gurara is also a pretty good place for birdwatching.
