Vacations are a special bonding time for families, the memories formed during such family adventures make stories that last for generations. Children also learn a lot from visiting these novel environments and meeting people from different backgrounds.
Here are some of the most beautiful places in Nigeria to take the family:
1. Obudu Mountain Resort
If you are a tourist looking for adventure and serenity, Obudu Mountain Resort is for you. Regarded as Africa’s finest and one of the most beautiful places in Nigeria, this resort is located in the highlands and deep tropical forests of Cross River State. Enjoy cable cars, canopy walkways, and much more with your family.
2. Yankari Game Reserve
A beautiful place in Nigeria to take your family is Yankari Game Reserve. Situated in Bauchi State, the resort is home to several natural warm water springs, as well as the remaining elephants and lions in Nigeria. Make sure to take a dive in the crystal clear warm springs, get a view of some wildlife, and your family vacation is set to be a memorable one.
3. Ikogosi Warm Springs
My shortlist of beautiful places in Nigeria is incomplete without Ikogosi Warm Springs, one of Nigeria’s biggest tourist attractions. It’s a must-experience natural wonder of two springs meeting while maintaining their individual temperatures. Put your hiking shoes on and get your camera ready for an amazing adventure.
4. Idanre Hills
Idanre Hills is found in an ancient city upon a hill in the city of Idanre Akure, Ondo State. Make sure you take the 682 steps it takes to get to the top of the hill and bask in the beautiful landscape of the city with your family.
5. Olumo Rock
Olumo rock is a huge outcrop of granite rocks. This rock is a historical monument that served as a shelter for the locals during intercity wars. If the family isn’t up for a hike up the rock, there are elevators available so they can still have a look at this beautiful place in Nigeria.
6. Erin-Ijesha Waterfalls
The Erin-Ijesha Waterfalls is a group of seven cascades that pour over a cliff, creating an impressive seven-part waterfall. It forms seven different levels with each level giving a whole new experience. That said, Erin-Ijesha falls is definitely a beautiful place in Nigeria to take the family for a day out of the city.
