This is the Mambilla Plateau, the highest plateau in Nigeria. On this plateau lies Chappal Waddi, the tallest mountain in Nigeria.
An author calls this place, "The unexplored tourist haven." Year-round the plateau experiences fair weather, with scenic views to match.
This is the Niger River. It is the 3rd longest river in Africa, spanning across multiple countries, including Nigeria; Niger; Benin and others. Its length? 2,597 miles. The Amazon river is about 1.5 times this length!
Although there are diseases that the entire world worries about, such as Ebola, Nigeria has common diseases that still pose a problem.
- Malaria- cited to be the main cause of child deaths in Nigeria
- Strokes- the stop of blood flow to the brain results in no good
- Pneumonia- the second leading cause of death in Nigeria
- Tuberculosis- in 2012, there were 1.3 million TB deaths. It had almost the same amount of deaths as HIV/AIDS
- Measles- although there are vaccines, poverty, lack of education, and lack of medicine allow this disease to spread
This is Lagos, the most populated city in Nigeria. Here are a few things to do while visiting this location
- The Lekki Conservation Centre- a jungle-like place where you can visit the wildlife in Nigeria. Take a look at the wildlife, while still visiting a city! The price of a regular tour is $60+, but a private guided one is $200+
- Elegushi Beach- It's a beach. However, at this beach there are plenty of activities to enjoy, such as horseback riding. However, this is a popular place to hang out, so it may be somewhat dirty and quite costly to get in and do activities (which also have fees).
- Eko Gym and Spa- a lovely place to workout and just relax. The gym is well equipped and the staff are all very helpful. Reviews recommend that if you visit this gym, then go to Hotel Eko as well, although the reviews say that the hotel isn't so grand.
This is Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria. Here are some things that I found might be worth a try while visiting Abuja.
- Millennium Park- it is the largest park in Abuja. Split into 2 sides, the first half is dedicated to the natural environment, while the other is dedicated to science and advancements. Housing butterflies and tropical birds, it seems like a nice place to enjoy.
- Abuja Arts and Crafts Village- this village is dedicated to the arts and crafts, and with that, you can purchase them almost anywhere here. This village represents the country's culture, and you can even find traditional things there.
- National Children's Park and Zoo- this could be a ton of fun for the whole family (if you and your children like zoos). You could see camels, tortoises, monkeys, crocodiles, and much, much more! If there are any very young children in the family, the zoo also contains domesticated animals and "Toddler's Lane," which has a playground.
