The adventure continues: hunt for treasures at Lekki Market, identify plant and animal life at Lekki Conservation Centre, walk around Freedom Park Lagos, and examine the collection at Kalakuta Republic Museum.

With the largest population and economy on the continent, Nigeria plays a big part in the rise of African tourism. The country's cities and villages provide a glimpse into a culture rich in musical and culinary heritage. Visitors on vacation in Nigeria tend to explore the southern and central regions, where the lively urban areas give way to a wealth of protected rainforests and river deltas, home to traditional communities with proud and distinct cultural traditions.

Tourist Spots · Nature & Parks · Museums
With a desert in the north, an arid strip through the middle, and grassland areas in the south, Chad boasts a huge diversity of environments, wildlife, and plants. The country has always appealed to adventurous and daring travelers, with unadulterated landscapes and large animal populations the rewards for those bothering to visit. A ratcheting up of unrest, political violence, and terrorism in the 21st century has made travel to the country inadvisable, so it's not surprising mass tourism in Chad never really took off.
