As Nigerians, we don’t play with festive periods as it is the only time we get to unwind and dump all the bad bad energy and vibes we accumulated over time.
Aside the feasting and merry making that define our festivities as Nigerians, we also get to relax. Matter of fact, relaxation might be the most important component of our festive engine especially if you live in Lagos.
To make the best of this period of rest, why not try visiting this places. (Don’t worry you won’t be needing any visa 😉)
1. Tinapa Resort
For anyone who wishes to tour Nigeria, Tinapa Resort is certainly the first place you should consider.
Since its inception, Tinapa resort had lived up to the hype.
A business and leisure resort located in Calabar, Tinapa resort offers amazing features like a casino, children’s arcade, an amphitheatre, retail and wholesale outlets for your shopping needs and an 8-screen digital cinema.
Located at the Calabar Free Trade Zone, you can equally seize the opportunity to prospect potential business opportunities within the zone.
2. Yankari Game Reserve
Okay so you don’t fancy digital cinemas and you consider shopping a boring routine 😕. You like to see nature as it is. You have a soft spot for animals 🤔
I’ve got you covered, book a flight or board a bus to Bauchi State, when you get there, proceed to Yankari Game Reserve.
This reserve is home to over 50 species of wildlife such as lion, leopard, hippopotamus, antelope, elephant, and waterbuck as well as over 350 species of colorful birds.
Of course you won’t be hunting the animals for dinner or sleeping with the baboons. 😕
The reserve has a decent and affordable accommodation for visitors. However, always remember to keep an eye out for those mischievous baboons. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. 🙄
3. Olumo Rock
So after you saw those baboons and monkeys you suddenly felt a surge of energy cascading through your body and you wish to try your luck in climbing.
Good for you, Ogun State exists for that reason.
Olumo rock used to be a place of refuge for the people of Egbaland in present Ogun State during intertribal wars in the olden days.
It has several spot caves, some of which are about 20 feet long and 25 feet wide. However, this rock has been modernized with elevator, eateries, and many more to serve as a tourist destination.
One can as well choose to take the staircase instead of the elevator to the top of rock. This serenity at the top of this rock is better experienced than told.
4. Port Harcourt Tourist Beach
After all that climbing and rocky moments at Olumo, you’ve become all sweaty and in need of a proper bath…beach like bath. 😉
Kindly head on to the State of Rivers and alight at its capital, Port-Harcourt, you’ll be wowed by this amazing and scenic beach.
Cool of and refresh your skin at sunbathing sites and when you think you’ve seen it all… Boom! …. Cultural dancers appear before you with scintillating dance moves. 😍
5. Wonderland Amusement Park
Trust me, there is no better way to end your tour than visiting Wonderland. As a rule, we all know that anything that comes from Abuja is presidential, even the kilishi. 😂
Wonderland is unarguably the biggest and most equipped park in Nigeria boasting of leisure gardens and an amazing arcade. How about the iconic Fulani Ranch where you get to taste different local and international delicacies. 🤗
And, should you hurt yourself while relishing in the goodness of this new found love, worry less, there is a clinic to attend your needs. 😎
