What to see in Nigeria

Nigeria Attractions


The majority of travellers in Nigeria are there for business purposes and not bent on sightseeing, but that doesn't mean that there aren't some fascinating attractions in Nigeria that are worth a visit to anyone willing to stray off the beaten path.

Most travel centres on the major cities of Lagos and Abuja, which offer plenty of attractions in the form of national museums, bustling markets, and pretty parks. Venture further afield however, and visitors will discover the beautiful beaches on the coast, the sacred forest groves of Osogbo, the pre-colonial settlements at Sungbo's Eredo, and many picturesque views in Nigeria's national parks.

A holiday in Nigeria is definitely for the adventurous, and is guaranteed to be unforgettable!
