This 78-hectare reserve is a must-visit for all nature lovers. A tour guide accompanies visitors along the boardwalk that runs through the nature reserve. Monkeys abound but sighting of other animals is not guaranteed because they come out as and when they feel like. The walk itself, though, surrounded by lush green, is well worth it. Several canopies have been... More

So, we had been planning on going here for weeks and weeks but as with all things, sometimes you need to just jump. Ideally, you should go here with cash handy for the admission and wet wipes for cleaning the lovely deck chairs/ a mat if you want to have a picnic. There are almost no public parks in Lagos...

This is a place kept like it used to be… it's basically a jungle in a city. You feel like you are in a completely different world! There's monkeys (who are not scared) and plenty of cute animals! I would definitely recommend. Take a couple of hours and stroll through. Like everything in Nigeria… be prepared to pay a bit... More

I was on holiday and stayed in a hotel right next to the Centre. Walking out one morning, I saw monkeys running along the fence, go into a ladies shop and grab some food, that piqued my interest and I decided to visit the centre. It's a fairly decent place, the most common animals you notice roaming freely are the... More

The Lekki conservation center is a gift that keeps on giving! A mix of rain forest terrain and savannah, you can lose track of time walking through this haven. A leisurely walk will take at least 45 minutes to cut across the park but that assumes you don't slow down to enjoy the sights and sound of nature.

If you want a get away to think, explore, meditate the conservation centre is it. if you're not scared of heights you could climb to the tree house. Be patient and you'll see the different birds. There are monkeys and the peacocks too.

The Lekki Conservation Centre provides a good opportunity for nature lovers to indulge in bird watching, experiencing aquatic / marine life and bask in the natural glory of the surrounding mangroves. Perfect for a family picnic or outing.
