A small patch of nature very accessible from the hectic city of Lagos. Great get-away for anyone staying in the city. I look forward to the opening of the canopy walk.

Lagos does not offer much to kids no exposure or experience of nature. If you have kids less then 10 to 12, you must take them here. The walk on wooden ramp, the monitor lizards, swamp crabs, birds, the canopy above...it gives you a true feel of nature walking in the jungle. If you are lucky you will end up... More

The place was better than i expected but lacked amenities. We all had to buy a entrance ticket which though a bit steep was... More

I visited the center few days to the end of the year 2014. There were so many small monkeys ( I think that is what they were) moving around freely. The center is a hidden gem away from the bustling of the city. The access fee in my opinion was rather high. Other than that, it is a good place... More

Lekki conservation is well worth a visit for anybody craving a little bit of nature far away from the overcrowded hustle and bustle of Lagos. The conservation centre offers the chance to see Crocodiles, Monkeys, Giant Tortoises and many varied species of Butterfly up close, as well as peace and tranquility in amongst the trees. Let's hope at some point... More

For 78 or so hectares of rich land. The caretakers do little to keep the path enjoyable. Little sign of life after 5 minutes into the path. The staff are bored and give off a bad vibe

Took a troop of Boy Scouts for a visit. The most fun part were the monkeys running around the parking lot outside of the conservatory. Inside was a track that was ok if you had never been in the Nigerian bush. However, it was poorly maintained. A portion of the wood track running over the water actually collapsed underneath me,...
