Lekki Conservation Centre: Nature’s Best In A Thriving Metropolis
When you think of Lagos what comes to mind? High Rise buildings and sky-touching towers right? What if I told you there is more? Fortunately, we don’t get to lose touch with nature and that is just what the Lekki Conservation Centre helps us do.
Located on an approximation of 78 hectares of land, the nature park extends from kilometer 19 along the Lagos-Epe Expressway and ends up a very close distance to the Atlantic Ocean near Okun Ibeju Village, Eti-Osa Local Government Area.
A visit to the nature park is same as a venture in the wild. For that, the LCC is an awesome experience. While the aim is to feel the wild, it isn’t just all about trees and thickets, there actually is more.
Amongst its many features is an astonishing 401-metre canopy walkway. It is truly amazing! This gives you a bird-eye view over the beautiful carpet of vegetations. It is reported that this swinging walkway holds the record of being the longest of its kind in Africa. Its an awesome experience on the walkway but I’d leave you to walk the wire.
When you’re finally on the ground, there are extra features like a nature station where you get to see exotic breeds and everything you really won’t stumble on during your everyday life.
You shouldn’t miss the giant board games on the floor too. Should your feet ache, there are huts you could rest in. When the rumble finally leaves the jungle and dwells in your belly, there are barbecues joints to keep your mouth moving.
The conservation centre is safe and secure. So you have nothing to worry while your there exploring nature in its best. You really need a time out and the Lekki Conservation Centre is exactly the place.
