We’ve listed the top five places to visit in Nigeria whether you are travelling with family, with your significant other or by yourself.

1. View gorillas in the rainforest

If you love the outdoors and enjoy soaking up sceneries and amazing natural wonders, then the Obudu Cattle Ranch is the place for you.

With a pool side bar, water slide bar, cable cars, waterfall, and golf course, this ranch is sure to keep the whole family entertained. A unique feature of this ranch is the canopy walkway, which is situated 70km above ground level, and resembles a swinging bridge above the forest. The canopy walkway offers some of the most amazing views, but the ultimate experience this ranch offers is a hiking trip through the rain forest to view the gorillas.


2. Soak up the sun on the beach

La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort Ibeju Lekki is a popular beach resort situated at the coast of the Atlantic Ocean Snooker. It offers travellers assorted games both on land and water to awaken team spirit amongst friends, family and colleagues. Spend a quiet day in playing board games, relax at the swimming pool or opt for more adrenaline filled activities such as water sports, table tennis, quad biking, basketball or even water volley ball.

3. Admire Africa’s wildlife

Yankari Game Reserves is a large wildlife park located in the Bauchi state, Nigeria in the Northern part of Nigeria.

Travellers will be able to see a large variety of wildlife from elephants, waterbucks, bushbucks, oribi, crocodile, hippopotamus, roan antelope and buffalo amongst others. A unique feature in the game reserve is the Wikki Warm Springs, where travellers can relax in the warm waters of this natural swimming pool.

4. Visit ‘the only place in the world where warm and cold water meets’

Located in Ikogosi in southwestern Nigeria, the Ikogosi Warm Spring Resort is popularly known as ‘the only place in the world where warm and cold water meets’.

Flowing side by side the warm spring and the cold spring come to a meeting point and flow onward together with each spring maintaining its thermal identity. The warm spring has a temperature of up to 70 degrees Celsius at the source and 37 degrees Celsius after meeting the cold spring. The meeting point of the warm and cold springs is the unique attraction to tourists.

Strangely also, there is a tree and a palm growing from the same root at the meeting point area of the warm and cold . A wonderful work of Mother Nature!


5. Embark upon a multi-activity holiday

Omu Resort is a dream-come-true for active travellers and combines adventure, nature, leisure, relaxation and history all in one.

On the premises, travellers will find a mini zoo, an amusement park, go karting and quad biking facilities as well as archery, horseracing, a Sea World and a museum with wax figures similar to Madame Tussauds in London.

Omu Resort is set in a rainforest environment and it allows guests experience and be inspired by the wonders of nature.
