Things to do in Nigeria

Stunning beaches

If you're looking for peace and serenity, head to Eleko Beach in the east of Lagos. Take a horseback ride along the beachfront, play a few games of volleyball and buy some local art from the beachside stalls. When you're finished, hit the bar for a cool drink.

Luxurious waterfalls

Marvel at the natural beauty of the Matsirga Waterfalls in Kafanchan, a town in Kaduna State, north-central Nigeria. Bask in the tranquil, soothing waterfall as it plunges 30 metres or eat a picnic down on the riverbank while you take in the beauty of the area.

Vibrant markets

There are many markets in Lagos but nothing as famous as Balogun Market. Spanning several streets in the heart of the traditional commercial district of the city, you’ll find a range of goods from fabric to household appliances – and everything in between.
