Lekki Conservation

Hi guys!

Today I’ll be sharing briefly my experience at Lekki Conservation Centre(LCC) in Lagos, Nigeria. LCC is a 78 hectare natiral resource conservation. It is located at 19, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lekki Penninsula II, Lekki, Lagos Nigeria. 

Getting to Lekki Conservation wasn’t so much of a hassle as I used Google map. 

I honestly love the environment. I was greeted by a Peacock, a Tortoise and a lot of monkeys( whick scared the heck out of me). 

I named this Paul, Monkey Paul that didn’t let me eat in peace

There’s a small lounge where you can purchase your ticket and relax and take in so much of the environment and also await the arrival of your tour guide.

The entry ticket for adult cost 1500 naira (about $6) and 500 naira for children(about $2). The canopy walk costs 1500 naira (about $6) for both adults and children but not every child can go on the canopy walk.

We had a tour guide who educated us about Lekki Conservation and took us on the walk which was about five minutes and it gave me more than enough time to enjoy the different vegetation types characterizing the Lekki Conservation nature part.

Then we got to the most interesting part of journey… The 401 metre long canopy walkway, this is actually the longest canopy walkway in Africa

This walkway is an amazing suspended swinging bridge walkway (yep, you heard me right…suspended) which helps you appreciate the vegetation types even much more, it gives you a chance to explore the Nature Park and get a bird’s eye or a panoramic view of the habitat types. It has the entry and exit portal connecting 6 towers and the highest height is actually 22.5 feet above the ground level

This is a tower

While my fellow humans were busy screaming, I was taking picturesπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and I sure had a very good laugh.

If you think the excitement had ended you’re very wrong as there was still so much to take in. Then we were directed to another part of the park

This other place is the perfect environment to have a picnic with your loved ones and perhaps if the height from the canopy walk scared you, this is the place to rest and get your head back in the gameπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. This place has about 5-6 family huts, floor games such as chess, ludo etc, a koia and tilapia ponds, barbeque joints, jungle gym facilities sch as zip lines, monkey bars and so on.

Every hut had a special name

I had an awesome time at The Lekki Conservation Center and I’ll definitely go back there with my parents. For those who are scared of heights, there’s a tree house to help you appreciate the park but its unfortunate I didn’t get to the tree house(I was exhausted). For ladies,please don’t go to the park in heels( you’d be uncomfortable) I saw someone with heels and she had to take it off as she couldn’t even move properly. If you plan on going to this park be as comfortable as possible.

I’m naturally not scared of heights so it was so much fun laughing at people who were screaming and acting like they were going to pass out (don’t worry I have a kind heart)

What’s a trip without food? they also have a food truck.

P.S: I forgot to remove the date and time from the settings of the camera, so please excuse that.

  1. Ahhh…aunty Bolu…well done ma. Taking pictures on a place 22.5 ft above the ground. The place is cool tho , very cool. I would love to go there . Thank you for the insight into the centre . I enjoyed every bit of the post.

  2. I didn’t even know we had such parks in Nigeria! Thanks for sharing your experience and insight about the place. We, Nigerians, need to find more time to relax more in such places.

  3. Once had a picnic there with other teens from church. I remember screaming and shouting a lot too 😏😏… Twas really fun, this post took me down memory lane. Should visit again sometime..

  4. LCC has always been fun. I’ve been there more than a couple of times and it’s always fun especially when there’s food, although they didn’t have a food truck all the times I’ve been there. New improvement I guess. I should really go back there for the foodπŸ˜‚ and sadly I never blogged my experience then… And yass, your pictures πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  5. Looks like you had fun. Been to the canopy walk way in Ghana so I’m sure that’s not much of an issue for me. I’ll definitely be going soon. Your post will help me with my budget.

  6. Your pants are so gorgeous 😍 I have a feeling I would also scream and maybe freeze on the walkway. The walkway reminds me of a video I saw of people walking on a glass bridge in china. I would definitely love to visit the conservation centre
