Dominating Africa’s western region, Nigeria is certainly an unconventional sightseeing destination, which makes it all the more interesting. Rich in natural sights and wildlife reserves, you’ll also discover a wealth of culture within the main cities.
The commercial hub of Lagos is the largest city in Africa, featuring a wide array of sandy beaches, bustling markets and museums. Within the suburb of Lekki lies a natural reserve of tropical rainforest with canopy walkways for spotting the monkeys, crocodiles and exotic birds below.
Venture into Nigeria’s wilderness and you’ll encounter stunning sights such as the Sacred Grove rainforest on the outskirts of Oshogbo or the mysterious Olumo Rock at the edge of Abeokuta.
Historic Benin City dates back to the 15th century and hosts a fascinating National Museum, whilst the southeastern city of Calabar is worth visiting for its botanic garden and conservation centre, and rich history.
Nigeria is host to wide range of hotels including well-known chains, with the majority found in Lagos or the capital of Abuja. A good selection of guest houses and B&Bs are also available.
The hotel was clean rooms spacious and very comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to help. The staff were always smiling and there was a great sense of team work within the hotel. I will definitely be back for sure. Top class hotel and nearly forgot about that view it was amazing. The management needs to know that he / she has a great team at the Oriental Hotel Lagos . Well done
