Weekend Getaway to Lekki Conservation Center (Photos)






Live from the commercial center of excellence, is the proper weekend getaway destination carved for nature lovers, tourists and people of all kinds-the Lekki Conservation Center.


 The Lekki conservation center is another world on its own. It is home away from home, free from the hustle and bustle that follows the city life.


 Asides the beautiful landscape and the freshness of the air, the long canopy walk was surely one of  the highpoints of this tourist attraction.

After relaxing and engaging in series of games, we got ready for the longest canopy walk in Africa. It was exhilarating and at the same time exhausting. Ready to take on the risk and not allowing my fear for heights get the better part of me, I began a new experience on this canopy walk. Unfortunately, I was did not take note of how long it lasted but at least I paused to catch  my breath and record my progress at each interval.

Other highpoints included the poolside, ponds occupied by fishes, the ludo and chess boards. I also participated in high peak climb. Standing tall on a high platform was also fun. Going up was not that easy. Extra precaution had to be applied less one loses grip. Thankfully, made it to the top and then when it was time to come down, it was much easier than going up.

The new experience, the breath of fresh air, the innocence of the monkeys, turtles and peacock, the colour green, the savannah, the food all added up to make the visit to the Lekki Conservation center an event never to be forgotten in a hurry. The thrilling experience took center page of my diary for 2017 under #My Expeditions#My Tours#Life OfA Geographer
