Lake Efi

Lake Efi is a huge natural lake located in Sabagreia, in Kolokuma/Opokuma local government area of Bayelsa State, and that is where the popular fishing festival takes place. Astonishingly, the lake is  believed to be self-purifying and despite the forest that surrounds it’s approximately 2km square area, the lake clears every fallen piece of debris to its banks, leaving its entire surface pristine at all times. Also, according to local folklore, the lake is said to periodically provide fish in great quantities for food for local people. When this occurs, it is done in a big celebration festival as people collect the huge fishes lying around for collection. Even more astonishing, is the fact the lake is brimming with crocodiles that do not harm humans during the festival.
