“Good Breakaway from noisy Lagos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The LCC is a good place to visit in order to see nature and its inhabitants coexist harmoniously away from the disturbance and disruption of the ever busy and noisy Lagos. I enjoyed the eerie feeling as you walk through the track trying to sight any animals or reptiles. I marveled at the tree house. However, something needs to be done at the picnic area.

“Nigerian Conservation Foundation!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Lekki Conservation Centre contains a really nice wooden walk way into the forest and is a nice and tranquil break to the hustle and bustle of the city life. The turtles are very cute and sometimes friendly enough to have their photo taken with you - in close proximity. The cafe and gift facilities are limited but I think they are working on making it more 'tourist friendly' while maintaining standards as an eco-park. The organisation is very transparent and you can feel good about donating more than the token fee as it goes towards the Nigerian Conservation Foundations work to create awareness surrounding environmental issues and encourage 'conservation'!

“Surprised to find this gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

I never knew that this wonderful place existed until recently! Located on the way to Lekki Market and Chevron compound, this is hidden just off the road. There is a bit of struggle concerning price of entry--seems it changes a lot--but once you are inside the gate it is a peaceful quiet location away from the craziness that is Lagos. We saw an alligator peeking above the water and lots of monkeys. Mainly, it is just a nice place to walk around and relax, enjoying the plants and animals. If you walk far enough to the back the terrain changes and you leave the tropical type plants and enter a desert-like area. This is a natural change of terrain, and quite abrupt! A great place to visit for a change of pace. Nothing earth-shattering, but when you live in Lagos a little bit of nature goes a long way!

“Welcome relief from crazy city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Saw loads of Mona monkeys, a green mamba, birdlife and huge monitor lizard. The savannah path was not passable so hoping that was due to rainfall. Didn't try veerrrry high treehouse as worried about safety. Play area pretty ropy. Great way to spend a couple of hours out and about in nature. Could be much better.
