Lekki Conservation Center
Lagos is one of the busiest and most exciting cities in Africa and only a few places on the African continent matches the energy and vibrancy found in this bustling Nigerian city. However, just a short trip from the hustle and bustle of the city, you will find a remarkable area of natural beauty - the Lekki Conservation Center.
Incredible wildlifeIf you have a day to spare during your visit, a trip to the Lekki Conservation Center should definitely be on your list of things to do in Lagos. The center is an educational resource set up and run by the Nigerian Conservation Foundation. Located next to swaths of rich wetlands, the broad savanna habitats 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 West African wildlife, will be richly rewarded. Monkeys, bushbucks, crocodiles, monitor lizards and a dizzying variety of birdlife live among the trees and undergrowth around the conservation center, and are all visible from the 1.8 kilometer long walkway that runs through the area.
The best of Nigerian natural historyLagos has an incredibly rich history, much of which is on display at sites like the Black Heritage Museum, but at the Lekki Conservation Center, it is nature that takes center stage. The diverse landscapes of the center allow tourists to get a flavor of the wildlife in the area without having to spend hours traveling through the Nigerian countryside.
Visiting the center is one of the best ways to make the most out of a trip to Lagos and a great way to complement a stay at the upmarket Radisson Blu Anchorage Hotel, where you will be located conveniently close to top Lagos attractions and the blossoming Lagos business scene.
