This is the ideal spot to spend half a day in Lagos. There's an 8-shaped trail that goes through swamps, jungles and savannah type of vegetation. There's a tree-house perched atop a huge tree and last time I visited, I saw that they were building some walking platforms that take you above the tree line! Remember to bring water or... More

This place is completely class and an amazing day out. I couldn't believe that I was 20 minutes drive outside of Lagos. Everything about the area is an example of how urban planning should be done. The park is just off a main road but once you are inside it, you can't hear any traffic noise. It is literally like... More

The serenity in this place is a total bliss for a city like lagos. You literarily forget you are still in lagos. The air is clean . Its a good day out for family of friends.

As an expat living in a mega city of 22 million folks like Lagos, Nigeria, having the ability to escape to a safe,close by patch of greenery, full of flora and fauna, was a welcome surprise. Located just on the eastern edge of the Lekki Peninsula on a main road, the Lekki Conservation Centre gives you access to the African... More

It's a real jungle! You go round on a rickety wooden walkway, although not that rickety. Unless you wear heels, which one lady in our group did. The Monkeys come up real close and you get taken round by a guide, although, i reckon you could go round without a guide if you've been before.. Guides are good at knowing... More

Amazing place to visit with a large compound! visitor friendly with cafe and snack bar /souvenir shop. Beautiful surroundings and felt very close to nature with the monkeys and birds in the trees , got a bit lost in the savanah area though!

good place for nature photography. Well preserved. Good for a day outing with family. Carry food and water. Thick canopy of forests so early morning photography can be a challenge.
