Very quiet. We went in the afternoon with kids and there was no animal in sight. Not one. Maybe one monkey or so. It was nice in terms of peace and quiet being surrounded by nature and all that Jazz. I think they need more animals though, that are awake during the day.

Lekki Conservation is an ideal park for a family outing and especially for the children in terms of educational qualities and for lovers of Nature. Very conducive environment, beautiful sight for nature watch. Watch out for the beautiful peacocks as they waltz around the park.

Lekki is not that great. In and of itself it is nice and peaceful, but not worth a visit for its own sake. Lagos is an awful city that isn't worth any time. I was in Nigeria for business, for the first time and decided to stay in Lagos 2 extra days to see Lekki and a museum. Not worth... More

We didnt discover LCC till it was time for us to leave lagos. When we visited in apr 2014, all the ramps were freshly put up with no loose nails. We spotted lot of birds , monkeys and snakes. For someone who loves to go for treks for which there arent many opportunities in lagos, this can be a great... More

I had been there quite a few times. Its a nice place to walk around in a wooden roads made i a 2 km jungle. There are no wild animals as such except a few monkeys, snakes, birds, peacock, etc. There is a tree house as well. But avoid going in rainy season as many of the parts a closed... More

This place would be perfect if the ramps weren't falling apart, there wasn't trash dumped all over the swamp and that the clearing at the middle of the trail was better maintained to allow people to have a picnic. The highlight for me is steep climb up a tall tree (on a ladder) and reaching the top of the view... More

I was a beautiful and refreshing experience from the hustle & bustle of Lagos. Well Maintained greenery with a multitude of Animals free in their habitat. The Tickets are a bit costly @ 1000N for adults, but he good thing is that they have subsidized for the kids. A good diversity of birds makes bird-watching quite interesting. The tree-top house...

It's amazing that traveling just 10 kms down the Lekki Expressway from V.I. ... a little past the Chevron HQ site at the seventh roundabout ... there is an unspoiled sanctuary of equatorial greenery, birds, and animals in their natural habitat! Best to go earlier in the morning to see the most activity, with lush canopied walking trails remaining shaded... More

Beautiful place, they charge a N1000 for a visit, which is bomb, it is being maintained , but people are very loud which drives away all the animals or birds you have gone to watch. Watch out for monkeys they come dangerously close but have not noticed anybody getting hurt. If you don't have food and water handy don't go... More

You wouldnt expect to find such in a busy place like Lagos, very quiet, serene and if you are lucky you get to see the crocodiles. The tickets are not expensive.
