The Ogbunike Caves are found in a valley in the tropical forest of southeast Nigeria, in Anambra State. Descending into the valley is a lengthy walkway of 317 steps, which were constructed by the state government.

The cave, has about 10 inner chambers and several tunnels, some of which are interlinked.

Several streams also flow into the caves, and another stream within flows out into river Nkissa.

The caves have a spiritual significance for the local people, and a festival is celebrated to commemorate the discovery of the caves.

Bats are the main occupants of the caves, but other animals can be found in the tropical rainforest vicinity, including antelopes, porcupines, and snakes.
