It was thrilling to find such an expansive area of natural beauty in a city that is usually congested. We visited during a renovation so perhaps that meant the reception was located in a cramped side office. The tickets are priced very fairly however be prepared to wait 30mins after purchase to begin the guided tour. Once the tour starts, it’s about 1.5 hours to cover the entire group including the canopy walkway.
Overall, it was a great experience and would definitely recommend to any visitor to Lagos Island.

I had friend who wanted to visit the park. Its really a nice a place and must do on any Lagos list. I had visited this park a few years and had a better experience then. The prices are quite inexpensive however make sure you enter with a guide who would explain everything in context as you enter. On this visit we were left to navigate everything on our own which makes the experience less interesting. The park could do with some infrastructure investment especially in the family area etc. All in all an interesting and exciting place. Make sure you do the canopy walk.

Due to the covid-19 restrictions, you can't walk in anymore. Everyone has to book online (even while waiting at the gate) and wait for confirmation before they let you in.
The walks happen in batches so if you're lucky you might not wait too long before you start.
It cost 3k per adult and 1,500 per kid (+ canopy walk).
You can't take food or drinks on the walk so eat and drink well ahead or prepare to buy things there.
You need at least an hour to go through the complete walk+tree house (if there's no crowd)
The canopy walk was a little scary because of the sneaky noises and excessive movement of walkways.
I only saw monkeys throughout so I'm not sure what other animals they have in 'nature'

P.S. don't forget to wear comfortable shoes

For anyone who loves the outdoor experience, LCC is a great option and thankfully, they've managed to maintain a certain standard for a few years now (which says a lot considering our general lack of a maintenance culture in these parts 🙂).

The suspended canopy walk remains an awesome experience and is also a great cardio workout but isn't recommended if you have a fear of heights; on every occasion I've taken the walk, there's always been at least two people who develop mild panic midway. There's a picnic area after the walk which now houses a few food stands - suya, shawarma, drinks etc; as well as sitting areas and a few games such table tennis and chess. There's supposedly some wildlife within the centre though I've never seen any animals other than monkeys on all my visits. The entry fee is very affordable (N4000 for adults during my last visit and this gives you access to all areas).

Overall it's a fun experience and nice attraction.

If You like nature, that’s the place for You. For a little entrance fee, You can enjoy a walk in the jungle, see some monkeys, hear beautiful birds. You can take Canopy Walk, great thing if You are not scared of the hight. There is a chilling area, restaurant, clean toilets. Staff is very nice and helpful. There is free parking place as well. Me and my family really enjoyed.

I highly recommend this place if you find yourself in Lagos. It is a hidden gem and I find it absurd that people in Lagos do not know about it because of bad publicity. This place offers you an opportunity to let loose especially if have have been under intense pressure. The adrenaline rush is at its peak.It is also a good place for picnic, family bonding,office get together, games etc. Be warned that the canopy walk and tree climbing are extreme sports which you cannot do carrying babies and toddlers (These they won't tell you, you would find out after you have paid). The management need to keep the water and natural reserve cleaner, maintain the facilities especially the walkway better and do better publicity. Prep people up well before they embark on it, not allowing them to find out for themselves while on it already. Also do not wear formal or native attires for these activities.

The setting is absolutely beautiful! You would never believe you are in a big city like Lagos. Generally, you wait for a tour group to gather (online booking essential during Covid times), then set off on a beautiful boardwalk walk through the forests. The canopy walk portion is optional (but unless you fall outside of the age or ability range, or you have a fear of heights definitely DO IT!) and offers spectacular views from above the tree canopy. Monkeys are very visible, especially near the start and finish. Birds and frogs are evident by their calls.

There is a 'family park' on route where you can have lunch or a snack. There are picnic tables, shelters, and food and drinks on sale (this was limited during Covid, but you were allowed to take your own picnic...though I don't think you are usually).

Down sides:
-We waiting an hour and a half to start the walk, even though signs show that it should be a 30 minute wait.
-There is no control over misbehaving guests. Kids and teens were throwing food to monkeys at the start, left their snack packets lying around the park, and tried to touch, tease and chase monkeys. Parents and park staff didn't bat an eye. Someone on the walk carried a blue tooth speaker slung over his shoulder and played music as we walked...completely destroying the sense of peace in nature.

The round trip walk, including the canopy is probably an hour or just under. But allow time for a wait to start, and time to relax or have lunch if you choose.

The main attraction here is the phenomenal tree-top walkways which are apparently the longest in Africa and the second-longest in the world. I don’t particularly like heights but the sides are high and I felt very safe. They do wobble but only 6 people are allowed on at once and it’s carefully organised,so the chances of encountering an idiot who wants to make them bounce is thankfully small! It’s true that this is more about fabulous tree-top views than wildlife spotting, but you will see monkeys and we also saw a small crocodile. It’s also interesting to see the swamp landscape which would have been far more normal here prior to modern development. It’s open 7 days a week and definitely worth visiting.

The place is very refreshing, full of greens, they also have friendly monkies. Please put your camera shutter on silent when taking photos of them as well as the flash. I paid NGN 3000 for the entrance (i went during easter break). So probably it’s cheaper during ordinary days.

I can recommend this place to people who wants to have a quick escapen of the city life. The canopy walk is also safe, there is a limited number of person allowed to be on the canopy at a time.

This a beautiful and relaxing spot in the heart of busy Lagos. It is the natural state of the environment that Lagos has grown around. The great canopy walkway offered a great view of the Centre, as well as views of the city from the top. We are seniors and we were able to complete the walk without too much difficulty. A great outing that is a must-do in Lagos.
