Those are really nice waterfalls. Can’t believe you have 10 in Nigeria! My favorite is the Awhum waterfall coz it looks like the waterfalls is inside a cave. Have you been to all of them?
We have more than 25, and yes, the Awhum waterfall is inside Awhum cave. I haven’t been to all but i have visited a lot of them.
