Nigeria in detail

Travel with Children

While children will be treated kindly in Nigeria, you may find the practicalities difficult. The broken pavements are very difficult for prams, and public toilets tend to be dire, with no baby-change facilities. Bus journeys are hot and crowded, with few loo breaks.

Child-friendly sights:

Lekki Conservation Centre Climb the canopy walkways to get close to the monkeys in this wetland reserve.

Afi Mountain Drill Ranch Watch drill monkeys and a very lively chimpanzee up close in Calabar.

Osun Sacred Grove Vervet monkeys scamper through the trees of the grove, but thankfully the snakes and alligators stay well hidden.
