If you are a travel fan then Nigeria can be a great destination for you, here are the 10 best places in Nigeria you will never forget.
Nigerians love to travel, yet, even the majority of us haven’t explored the wonders flourishing in our backyards, partly because we’re oblivious to their existence in the first place. Nigeria’s landscapes boast of magical springs and thrashing waterfalls, compellingly formidable hills and mountains, and plush greenery that will make you wish you could live out the rest of your existence in blissful nomadism. Pack your bags and venture!
There are a myriad of reasons why Plateau State in its entirety is your one-stop shop for tourism in Nigeria. In fact, it’s already aptly nicknamed “The Home of Peace and Tourism.” The gorgeous state of Plateau is home to the most beautiful mountain peaks Nigeria has to offer, including the Kurang Volcanic Mountain, wildlife parks, waterfalls, a resort, golf course, amazing rock formations to camp and picnic on and around, and the Jos National Museum.
Mysterious, alluring, dome-shaped hills characterize the scenery at the peaceful Idanre Town in Akure, Ondo State. The Idanre Hills, also known as “Oke Idanre” is not only a national pride, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Idanre Hills rise above water amid a rich and beautifully diverse ecosystem which includes a mystical river with healing powers. The walk up the approximately 660 steps leads you through sites with mysterious handwritings and footprints on the rocks, to an ancient kingdom located at the top. A visit to Idanre, with the accompanying folklores, will make you believe anything is possible.
The largely unexplored, serene Ikare village is a combination of beauty, nature, and relaxation. Ikare village resides on a Lagos coastline, along which lie dazzling beaches with grand palm trees. A trip to Ikare is conducted by boat, and this adds to the sense of adventure that you feel as you approach the beaches, feasting your eyes on the different gorgeous manifestations of nature in the area. Upon arrival, Ikare greets you with a line of nicely structured beach houses and the popular Kamp Ikare resort. While the boat trip back is also therapeutic, you’d still wish it didn’t mean you were going “back.”
