So this is actually an updated post from the original Lekki Conservation Center post because I sort of lost the original post when I got a domain name. Talk of DIY’ing everything smh.
Don’t you just hate when you try to upgrade and the options available don’t seem to fit? Or make you loose vital stuff…Urrghh!!
I felt like I should update the post because I kept getting a lot of questions from friends about the center and what they should expect to see when they get there; plus charges. I figured it will be nice to have it on the blog for any interested persons to use as reference.
For starters, this was one of the most hyped places when I just got to Lagos and that’s what triggered my interest.
I decided to visit with a friend TK, who had been there before and who was excited to pay another visit. The canopy walk happened to be his personal favorite so he was all for it when I proposed we go.
We paid entry fee of N2500 per head, which involves the canopy walk and access to the large playground.
The very first time I was there, we paid N2k per person to experience both the canopy walk and access to her playground. Also, there was freedom of choice to experience and pay for just one of them. They changed all that; now you pay N2500 obligatorily to experience both of them.
The Canopy Walk
The canopy walk happens to be the longest walk in Africa and you should know there are seven of them, just in case you’re thinking it’s something you can hurry and get over and done with. Atleast I know it was a long walk when I was there. I was literally terrified all through it, and then fascinated.
I advice going there on a weekend – you get a fuller experience this way with others present, especially the walk. The reactions from different people while at it are crazy lol.
I almost didn’t go through with it but Tk wasn’t having any of it; he literally bullied me into it and stayed at the back so I don’t act up smh
The Tree House
Never one to shy away from an adventure so climbing a tree house is of course expected. The first time I climbed with Tk;t companion the next time was crazy scared so she waited for me at the foot of the tree house.
Like many people I was expecting to find quite a few animals within; only came across monkeys and a tortoise. There may be snakes because of the warnings written all over for us to be mindful of, but we didn’t see any.
The good thing about Lekki Conservation Center is it serves many purposes; from its famous canopy walk, to its large playground which can be used to host parties, to photo shoot worthy vibes, touristic pleasures and it goes on.
In addition, there is freedom to bring into the playground snacks of your preference, you are not obligated to buy from them. But just in case you don’t want to carry stuff, you can always buy from within. There are varieties to choose from.
Thanks for reading guys, until next time
Have you visited Lekki Conservation Center before ? Would you like to visit someday?
