Feast on traditional Nigerian food

Nigeria has a dizzying array of delicious traditional dishes to try. Be sure to sample jollof rice – a rice dish incorporating tomatoes, onions, chilli peppers and a range of spices. Each region has its own variation involving vegetables, meat or fish.

Another of Nigeria’s most popular delicacies is suya – a richly-spiced grilled meat snack served on a stick. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy chin chin – deep-fried, bite-sized balls made using flour, milk and sugar.

Discover Lagos' little slice of rainforest

The Lekki Conservation Centre is nestled in the centre of Lagos and Lekki’s urban sprawl. However, step foot into this inner-city rainforest and you’ll feel a world away from the bustle of Nigeria’s largest city.

Take a walk along the 1,315 foot (401 metre) swing bridge suspended above the forest canopy as you head into the wooded depths. The bridge is the largest of its kind on the continent and a wonderful place from which to soak up the nature all around you. Spot birds, monkeys and more among the treetops.
