Welcome to Nigeria
All Nigeria Festival Holidays:
The equatorial West African country of Nigeria is an amazing country to visit. Known as ‘’the Giant of Africa,’’ it is Africa’s most populous country and the seventh most populous country in the world.
Located on the Gulf of Guinea, Nigeria is the home to some very intriguing sights and attractions that every visitor has to visit when they are here.
The cities of Lagos, Port Harcourt, Kano and Abuja are must-see Nigerian cities. The history and the rich cultural heritage that is present throughout Nigeria as well as the Nigerian welcome are very appealing to the tourists who visit this tremendous African country.
Fishing in Lagos
Fishing is very popular here in Lagos. If you are looking for something to do, the coast of West Africa is a great place to fish. Early in the mornings and throughout the day you will see many fishermen out in their small boats trying to unearth a catch.
Even though Nigeria wouldn’t be known as a top destination for deep sea fishing – fish of all types can be caught here in this charming Nigerian city.
Traffic in Lagos
When holidaying in Lagos, you are sure to experience terrible traffic chaos that is an everyday occurrence. Traffic congestion in Nigeria’s sprawling metropolis of Lagos has steadily become worse.
With a lot of pedestrians present in this bustling Nigerian city and buses becoming more and more crowded, frustration is at an all-time high. You will definitely experience this on your visit here to Lagos.
Nigeria’s National Mosque, Abuja Mosque which was built in 1984 is a real treat for visitors to the Nigerian capital. If you didn’t know it, Nigeria is one African country with a substantial Muslim population.
Tourists to Abuja will be able to visit this very important mosque to the Muslim community in Abuja and beyond as it is open to the non-Muslim public except when congregational prayers are taking place.
Kano City Wall
This ancient city wall in the heart of Kano is located close to some other Kano sights including Kurmi Market, Emir’s Palace and Dala Hills. The wall was completed in the 14th Century to provide security and protection to Old Kano City’s growing population against intrusion from outside forces. The reason for the gate was used to control the movement of people in and out of Kano's Old City. The Gates are as old as the walls. Today, most of them lie in ruins.
