Ogbunike caves are associated with living traditions and are said to be used by the people for many centuries. The site still retains its historical and spiritual significance. There is an annual festival called "Ime Ogbe" celebrated in commemoration of the discovery of the caves. The biodiversity of the site has remained almost intact. The integrity of the site is attested to by the presence of the primary forests around the caves. Nkisa River flows by the side of the caves into which the water that drains from the caves empties itself. Ogbunike cave is a UNESCO tourist site.
