When visiting Lagos, make sure to head over to Lekki Conservation Centre to take in the Canopy walk. This is home to Africa’s longest canopy walkway. It is a whopping 401 meters long! Lagos is famous for its terrible traffic. Nothing really prepares you for it, even if you have visited other global cities that are infamous for this same reason. You can only feel sorry for your taxi driver as they try to navigate through this city’s nightmare traffic. It is quite common to see drivers making five lanes out of a three-lane motorway and try to push their way in front of the cars next to them.

In fact, the Niger Delta River is the third largest delta on the planet. Although the official language of Nigeria is English, over 500 languages are spoken in the multicultural nation. After English, major languages in Nigeria include Yoruba, Hausa, and Igbo. Pidgin, which is a mixture of English and native languages, is also spoken by many Nigerians. Nigeria is also home to some terrific food. Two of the country’s famous national dishes are Pounden Yam and Jollof Rice. Pounded Yam typically accompanied by a soup such as Egusi, Okra, Ogbono, or Vegetable soup, while Jollof rice is more of a stew of tomato and rice, often served with goat or lamb.
