Calabar in detail
Arik Air flies daily to Lagos and Abuja (for around N55,000).
In theory Fakoships sails every Wednesday and Friday around 7am to Limbe in Cameroon (N6000, seven hours), but at the time of writing the service wasn't running.
The main motor park is tucked between Mary Slessor Ave and Goldie St. Sample minibus fares include Lagos (N3200, 10 hours) and Ikom (for Afi Mountain Drill Ranch; N700, three hours).
