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.

This was a bit surprising to find in Lagos as it doesn't strike you as a place that would have any focus on conservation. Nonetheless the evening was quite well spent with a guide who was very helpful in conducting the tour of the area. Several interesting animals were seen as we walked through.

I visited the park with a group of work colleagues and I am sure nobody had a very good impression of the place. To get there was a challenge, there was no sign until you almost missed it. When we got inside a very rude lady sold us tickets and provided no information apart that we should walk around. After... More

I have visited this place today with my friend. It is an awesome experience. It's around 2 Km nature trail through a serene, calm and silent biodiversity park. only thing you will listen is the chirping of birds, cuckoos of peacock and all sort of jungle sounds which will soothen you through out. A tree platform of about 20-25 meters... More

This was the last of several visits made in 2013 with family or friends. Group of kids and few mums setting up picnic in PICNIC area; cheeky monkey steals lunchbox; children squeal with understandable excitement and surprise; man appears from nowhere and in an extremely rude fashion asks me to remove party as we are being too noisy and he...
