As the other reviews testify, if in the noise and haste of Lagos you are looking for a refuge of calm and peace then LCC is the place to come. The expansive grounds were donated by Chevron Oil and they have been well used to create this nature walk. Please note that it is not suitable for wheelchair users. The advertising boasts much and the truth is you will see Mona monkies - plenty on a good day. You may get to see the giant tortoise, the collection of peacocks and peahens. My friend who is an avid visitor and birdwatcher has also seen the tiny crocodiles and a collection of different African birds. The route through the centre is via the boardwalks that have been constructed and you get to experience four different terrains including grasslands and savannah. There are detours to the swamp observatory and bird hide and there is a tree house for those with the nerve and stamina to ascend the ladder which offers fantastic views. On entry to the park, the monkeys have become so used to visitors that if you go armed with bananas you are very likely to make a lot of new friends. Please see the pictures attached.
Here's the thing - I have been on a quiet, early Sunday morning and seen virtually nothing and yet it is still worth it. Just to be in the fresh air, looking at amazing trees and enjoying that very under-rated thing called "peace" is worth the modest entry fee alone.
Well worth a visit!!
