Lekki Conservation Centre
Lagos is one of the busiest and most exciting cities in Africa. Few places match the Nigerian capital in terms of sheer energy and vibrancy. But just a short trip away from this bustling hub of international commerce lies a remarkable area of natural beauty — the Lekki Conservation Centre.
Visitors to Lagos who are enjoying the comfort and convenience of the Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel, Lagos V.I. will find that a trip to the Lekki Conservation Centre provides an unforgettable experience that is sure to enrich their stay. From the luxurious hotel, this environmentally fascinating conservation area is easily accessible.
The Lekki Conservation Centre is an educational resource set up and run by the Nigerian Conservation Foundation. The centre is situated next to swathes of rich wetlands and broad savannah habitats that are accessible to visitors via a network of raised platforms and pathways.
The wealth of biodiversity in the area is striking and visitors who are interested in the wildlife of West Africa will be richly rewarded. Monkeys, bushbucks, crocodiles, monitor lizards and a dizzying variety of birdlife live amongst the trees and undergrowth around the Lekki Conservation Centre and they are all visible from the 1.8km-long walkway that runs through the area.
The best of Nigeria's natural history
Lagos has an incredibly rich history, much of which is on display at sites like the Black Heritage Museum, but at the Lekki Conservation Centre it is nature that takes centre stage. The diverse landscapes of the centre allow tourists to get a flavour of the wildlife of the area without having to spend hours travelling through the Nigerian countryside.
Visiting the Lekki Conservation Centre is one of the best ways to make the most out of a trip to Lagos, and a great way to complement a stay in the luxurious surroundings of the Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel, Lagos V.I. This superior Victoria Island hotel provides the perfect base for a trip to Lagos.
