Posted on 20 June 2018 by admin (0)

A lot of negative media image has seemed to consistently trail the continent of Africa in recent times. News reports about wars and poverty are repeatedly flashed across cable TV stations. But the truth is that this is only a very tiny part of the full story. The truth is that the continent of Africa is very beautiful. Endowed with a lot of natural landmarks; hills, mountains, waterfalls, and various types of vegetation with wildlife, Africa is a really beautiful place to be.

In this piece we will be convincing you to check out some nice places in Africa’s most populous nation- Nigeria. Nigeria, a country of about 180 million people, has so many stunningly beautiful features that will thrill your aesthetic sense endlessly. Located in the Western part of Nigeria with a tropical weather, diverse cultures, languages, and tribes, and a booming economy. A trip to Nigeria will offer you both a deep cultural and historical experience as well as a stunning view of some “out of this world” natural features.

Below are some of the sites and sights to expect in Nigeria

  • Colorful Festivals and Carnivals: With a widely varied culture consisting of over 300 tribes and many languages, this fusion of cultures provides some really interesting sights on display. From the eyo festival in Lagos state (South West), to the annual Calabar carnival in Cross river state (South South) and the world renowned Osun-Osogbo Festival (South West), there are also the camel and horse riding durbans held in Northern cities like Kano, you’ll definitely catch one of these during your visit no matter the time of the year you choose to go.
  • Parks and Games Reserves: There’s the Yankari games’ reserve in Bauchi state, a site where you can safely observe wild animals in their natural habitat. You can also visit the Kainji lake national park; this lake is where the Kainji Dam is located, a source of hydro-electric power generation for the country.
  • Luxurious Beaches: Being a nation with some cities along the coastline, Nigeria has some of Africa’s most beautiful beaches. Start with the Coconut beach in Badagry, as the name implies, you’ll find a lot of coconut trees here under which to find shade from the heat of the tropical sun. Beyond just being a beach site, this location also contains some history about the slave trade as it was through here that slaves to be sold were transported outside Nigeria in the years of the slave trade. There’s also the popular bar beach and the privately owned Elegushi beach among others.
  • Waterfalls and springs: Nigeria just seems to have it all as far as natural features are concerned. Starting with the Olumirin water falls in Erin Ijesa, Osun state, there’s also the Ikongosi Warm springs in Ekiti where hot and cold water mix naturally, fancy checking that out. The Awhu Waterfall in Enugu state, south east Nigeria is also a delight to visit any day.

Either you are a first time visitor or a returning tourist, Nigeria always has something fun to offer you.
