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...

After my last review of the Lekki Conservation Centre where I complained about the lack of customer service in the security guard I was pleasantly surprised to find the same security guard assist us in a nice manner. Good to see the change and happy that they listened to customers feedback. I could also see that there is a lot... More

Rather than the regular and crowded beach, expensive restaurants and bars, going to Lekki Conservation is an intriguing and delightful experience. It's a nature park inhabiting a number of plant species, monkeys, monitor lizards and peacocks. I took a friend out to the park and she enjoyed it, rather than the usual dining experience. There is a nice tall tree... More

It's the kind of place you'd go to just to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Early mornings are best (if you get out of bed) but it's worth it.

The monkeys for sure are worth the visit, but as my visit was at 11:00, I imagine most aimals already went into hiding. Supposedly early morning is the best time to view different species.
