Welcome to Nigeria Rendezvous. Given that only a handful of companies offer guided tours of Nigeria, planning a vacation in the West African nation can be somewhat challenging. One option is to arrange excursions and trips to see the natural and cultural attractions of Nigeria through your resort or hotel. Find the best Tours in Nigeria.

Enjoy your stay here on Nigeria Tours, all on Nigeria Rendezvous.

Planning Tips

What to Take

– Basic medical kit

– Malaria pills and deterrent spray

– Sunhat and sunscreen

– Good walking boots for hikes and muddy trails

– Umbrella for tropical downpours

– Torch for electricity blackouts

What to Wear
Nigerians are expressive dressers and pretty much anything goes, though you should dress modestly for religious sites and in Muslim areas. Loose cotton clothes are best in the intense heat. Lagos is a great place to shop for funky Afro fashions, and throughout the country tailors will copy favourite garments for you: just buy some gorgeous local fabric first.


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. Run by the Nigerian Conservation Foundation, this centre has a huge tract of wetlands set aside for wildlife viewing. Canopy walkways enable you to see monkeys, crocodiles and various birds; early morning is the best time to visit. There is a conservation centre and a library.

Afi Mountain Drill Ranch Watch drill monkeys and a very lively chimpanzee up close in Calabar. Home to a colony of rescued drill monkeys and chimpanzees, the Drill Ranch is home to Pandrillus, one of Africa’s most progressive primate-conservation bodies, which places emphasis on local education to combat poaching and the bushmeat trade. Spending time with founders Liza, Peter and local staff at the Calabar headquarters is fascinating. And they can help to arrange trips to their wilderness retreat, the Afi Mountain Drill Ranch.

Osun Sacred Grove Vervet monkeys scamper through the trees of the grove, but thankfully the snakes and alligators stay well hidden. The Sacred Grove is a large area of rainforest on the outskirts of Oshogbo. Within the forest is the beautiful Shrine of Oshuno, the River Goddess. In addition to natural beauty, there are many stunning sculptures by Suzanne Wenger (known locally as Aduni Olosa, the ‘Adored One’), an Austrian painter and sculptor who came here in the 1950s.

Availability & Cost of Healthcare

Healthcare in Nigeria is not of good quality, and there is little in the way of emergency care. Funds or insurance need to cover the cost of possible repatriation.
