Tinapa’s Plan

Tinapa is the resort that means business – the business of combing business, pleasure and leisure! This will be the first time that anything like this has been experienced in West Africa. No longer will you need to go to Europe, the Far East or America to enjoy the best entertainment, shopping and leisure facilities the world has to offer.

The total Tinapa complex is massive – 80 000 m² of retail and wholesale emporiums alone. The emporiums feature a borderless, seamless shopping environment – a unique concept that unfolds a new dimension in retailing for the first time in Africa’s history! These massive 21st century shopping emporiums will be supported by a vast array of retailers offering everything from exclusive bookshops, specialty CD and DVD outlets, pharmacies to beauty salons, banks and jewellery stores! Plus an incredible entertainment centre including cinemas, food court, internet cafe and games arcade.

There will be a dazzling range of six hotels to choose from – accommodation to suit a variety of lifestyles and budgets. The magnificent waterfront development incorporating a Fisherman’s Wharf, will showcase even more restaurants, bars and tourist kiosks. Imagine, after an endless night of fun, enjoying a champagne breakfast whilst watching a beautiful sunrise over the azure waters of the Calabar River.

And as if that’s not enough entertainment there’ll be added attractions to indulge in, including a golfer’s paradise with driving range and putting green, a jungle carting track, quad biking route, plus a clay pigeon and archery course!

Water activities, including water-skiing, parasailing, rowing and canoeing will take place in a luxurious oasis environment! Agri and eco tourism attractions will include a sizeable exotic bird sanctuary, a crocodile farm, a tropical fish farm, a primate rehabilitation centre and much, much more in the sun-drenched waterways of Tinapa.

Tinapa is the ultimate shop and party till-you-drop leisure centre – a world that is alive twenty-fours a day with a never-ending choice of activities to choose from.

Tinapa will provide visitors with a unique tourism experience and the development will fast track growth of the tourism sector in Calabar, Cross River State and Nigeria.
