If you ever get a chance to go to LCC, you'll quickly realise that it is a fascinating nature retreat in the hustle and bustle of Lagos. The newly built Canopy Walk is also a wonderful delight. During the Canopy Walk tour, one guide named Hilary was exceptional. He was very engaging and made the experience so much more worthwhile.... More

Just an hours drive east of Victoria Island, Lagos. This hidden Centre could be considered the only piece of untouched land in the area. There's a jungle atmosphere with plenty of water. It's quiet and secluded with very small crowds. It's a much needed getaway from the chaos that is Lagos.

We visited the conservation center in Lekki. • Fair entry price • A guide takes parties along a trail. Take a comfortable pair of walking shoes, some areas are very sandy. It is advisable to wear a hat and take cold bottled water. • Loads of monkeys, there is a Koi fish pond and we saw a tortoise, beyond that... More

Right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Lekki,this large expanse of protected land is a must see in Lagos. Though a small conservation by standards, it is amazing when you step into the greenery and the city noises cease, and it's place taken by chirping birds of all sorts. Near the entrance, there are the usual tortoise,... More

There is no map at all so you do not know how the area looks like, where you are, where you can go. There are no signboards to direct you. No information about what animals you can see, what their names are, what they eat etc. We saw a lovely bird, asked a member a staff what bird it was... More

There's nothing much in the centre apart from a monkey they have kept locked up, feel sorry for it, a turtle and some other monkeys climbing on the trees so it's nice to take some peanuts to feed them. There is a lot of open space and greenery. It's okay for a picnic. Not the greatest but for The Nigerian... More

Entry to the centre is 1000 naira. The highlight of the park is the canopy walk which costs an extra 1000 naira. A lot of natural beauty in one location. The staff are very helpful, also ask questions about the centre as you walk through. It is open on Sundays as well. Opening times - 8:30am - 5:30pm (last ticket... More

I was very very pleasantly surprised by this centre; we were greeted with peacocks and monkeys! There is a really nice picnic area, with life size board games [checkers, chutes and ladders, chess, etc] for kids as well as playground slides and whatnot. Unfortunately, some of the slides/playground things looked delapidated, which is a real shame because it looked it... More

At first I was disappointed seeing just monkeys and singing birds, not till we later saw peacocks and fishes. This is an ideal place for group and a fun place to relax, talk & watch others playing. Make sure you visit with your own food/snacks. Didn't feel like leaving because I enjoyed the serene atmosphere.

I had been to the centre a couple of times but I believe my best experience was when we made a picnic out of it. After a walk through the bird watching areas and observing the monkeys in the forest we arrived at a clearing with several different sized relaxation areas. I would advise beyond observing nature, bring lunch, a... More
