Lekki Conservation Centre Private Tour from Lagos
Ranked #2 of 30 things to do in Lagos
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 April 2018

If you are looking for a place so close to nature you need to be at Lekki Conservation Centre. It will afford you a 20 minutes walk, with monkeys in their natural habitat, swampy area and there is Canopy walk or alternatively, you can climb about 40 steps on the tree house. I advise that you register per annum, this will save you money rather than paying for entrance at every visit. There are also different fish ponds which are definitely eye catching, tortoise, games and other fascinating things to see. Get there early so that you can pack your car inside.

The canopy walk is really cool. The surrounding area, a littered park and some tragic looking fish ponds, is pretty shabby once you finish the walk but I definitely recommend doing the canopy. It is pretty high up so not for fraidy cats. Also check the age limit before you head off. I think under 12 not allowed and over 55?

A lushy green Conservation area. The conservation is divided into three parts. 1) The lushy green mangrove area 2) the canopy 3) the games cum picnic area.
Entry is N3000 (N1000 for each area). We did not go to the picnic area so paid N2000 each.The entrance fee includes a tour guide.
We had a fantastic time thanks to our tour guide Moyo who took his time to explain all.I loved the views from the canopy walk.
We were there for about 3 hours. Didn't see many animals just the mona monkeys and the 90±year old tortoise.

A group of us visited here to kill some time during our trip to Lagos. It was a fun experience, mainly for the tree top climb. We wanted to experience the canopy walk, but the line was way too long as it was a busy day.

Don’t come here expecting to see a ton of different animals, however, you will surely enjoy yourself.

This was quite an amazing trip.

A bit of a drive to get there so do plan it as a day out

The board walk through the mangrove was really quite surreal. in Lagos where everything is built up it was refreshing to be surrounded by nature. some of the boards were broken so do be careful

The canopy walk was quite hair raising. I don’t like heights so it was quite an ordeal for me i believe it’s the longest canopy walk in africa if i’m not mistaken . it was also quite windy and the walk way bounces a bit when you walk on it
an extra layer of excitement for those who like that kind of thing
turning back wasn’t an option . quite an intriguing bit of engineering to be honest but i didn’t focus too long on that ..... just in case

do wear sensible shoes preferably trainers or hiking shoes and do carry a back pack or bag that closes if you don’t want to share the contents with the forest flora and fauna.

it was a bit flooded because of the rains..... they offered us boots but we declined. if you’re going in the rainy season i recommend you carry your own boots

it was really well worth going up to the canopy walk ..... perfect for the adrenalin junkies out there....but i certainly won’t be doing it again

there was a massive tortoise walking around the front of the conservation centre which was quite nice to watch.

there are picnic benches as well which allowed us to sit and have an drink and some snacks. do carry mosquito / insect repellent if you’re wearing shorts.

A must see for all the nature lovers out there and those who love heights ✨
