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).
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
While my fellow humans were busy screaming, I was taking pictures😂😂 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 game😂😂😂. 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.
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.
Have you ever been to Lekki Conservation Center before? How was your first experience? If you haven’t, would you love to? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
