This centre is located atop the rocky area of Ososo in Akoko-Edo local government, north of Edo state. It presents beautiful scenery for nature lovers and rock climbers. The tourist centre is an offshoot of a colonial rest house built in the 1930s. The first phase of a massive renovation was commissioned in 1993 with a VIP lodge four chalets and the main lounge consisting of a kitchen, restaurant and bar. Ososo is a hilly and rocky town situated on the boundary between Edo and Kogi states. There is a non-catering rest house on top of a hill of Ososo which provides a wide and spectacular view of parts of Kogi state.
Ososo town is of granitic nature, with some elevations of volcanic origin containing precious stones of varied descriptions. Located on a plateau of dispersed rocks and undulating hills, the town continues to be a haven for tourists. Because of its rocks and climate, some Europeans established a quarry company north of the town, known as BOK Quarry some years ago. The rocks and hills of varied sizes and shapes occupy the plateau with the natural magical posture of a thousand models posing to nature’s camera. The colonial administrations as early as the 19th century recognised the tourist potential of Ososo and built the then Rest House which was a sort -after holiday haven for most of the white people working in Nigeria at that time.
