Introduction / History

Kambu people are from Gembu, Sardauna Local Government Area of Taraba State in Nigeria. Sardauna is one of the sixteen local government areas in Taraba State. The local government area, located on the south-east of the state, is bounded by Republic of Cameroon on the southern, eastern and almost half of its western part and Gashaka and Kurmi Local Government Areas on the north and south-west respectively. Sardauna Local Government Area has a total land mass of about 3,765 km with an altitude of about 1,850 m above the sea level. This part of the country is relatively cool owing to its altitude. Most days, in the dry season, the temperature will reach 20°C to 23°C and drop to 16°C to 18°C at night, while in the wet season these averages fall a couple of degrees to about 14 to 13°C. The area is highly saturated by green-lush vegetation. It is free of tsetse flies and harbors over one million head of cattle. The route to the plateau and the terrain is widely fascinating given its scenic beauty, vegetation and landscape which charm various ethnic groups and tourist to the area. The Kambu trade kola nuts as far as Kano and the eastern parts of the country. In the 19th century, the planting of kola nuts and pear trees are attributed to Kambu.
