Nigeria Back

Nigeria is one of the most colourful countries in West Africa. It is full of life and there are many treasures to discover. Nigeria grew rich very quickly in the oil boom of the seventies. Hospitals, schools, public buildings and excellent roads were built all over the country. It is often referred to as the ‘Giant of Africa’ because of its large population and status as an economic powerhouse. Although it's not on most people's travel list, it's a fantastic destination for overlanding for that very reason.

Nigeria offers a new challenge every day, and it is a chance to experience the animated life of West Africa. 

Nigerian food is typical of West Africa, and there are delicacies available all over the country. For example, the popular meal of Suya is a kebab-style meat that is infused with spices from across the nation, skewered, and barbecued.

There are many national parks and forests across the country and these are home to some amazing wildlife. Most gather at the Gaji River, including elephants, lions, buffaloes and baboons. In the Yankari National Park there are large herds of elephant, as well as giraffe, ostrich, lion, hippo and antelope, so there is certainly a chance of seeing some of these. The main draw here is the Wiki Warm Springs. With a beautiful temperature of around 30 degrees, these glistening clear waters are an experience not to be missed.
