Best things to do and see in Nigeria

What popular events take place in Nigeria?

Flights to Nigeria are your entrée to the many colourful annual festivals and celebrations in the country. These combine music, dance, carnivals, food and fashion with traditional rituals and ceremonies. The Lagos Carnival is one of the biggest and most popular festivals in Nigeria. It originated more than a century ago, brought to the country by returning emancipated slaves from Cuba and Brazil. This introduced the idea of the lavish South American carnival, which adapted over the years to become a showcase of Nigerian culture. The New Yam Festival occurs sometime between August and October, to mark the time between the harvest and the next planting season. You can sample the many different dishes made with country’s staple starch and watch traditional tribal beauty pageants and more modern fashion shows. The Durbar Festival happens twice a year, once at the end of Ramadan and again at the end of Eid. This is characterised by colourful horse parades, traditional dancers and acrobats, and the age-old horse races through the city. The Gidi Culture Festival is an exhibition of urban youth culture in Nigeria, held over Easter. Its main focus is live music each year, featuring artists from neighbouring African countries and as far south as South Africa.

Is Nigeria known for specific food/cuisine?

The prospect of tasting traditional West African regional cuisine is another great motivation to look for Nigeria flight deals. The food is colourful and varied, taking advantage of every local ingredient. The most popular dish in this entire region is jollof rice, eaten in several countries. It’s made by creating a base of rice, tomato and peppers, to which are added carrots, green peas, onions and prawns, in various combinations. Nigeria has a healthy rivalry with Ghana over who makes the tastiest version. Iyan is pounded yam (sweet potato). It’s consistency is thicker and stickier than mashed potatoes, and it’s then eaten with stews or soups. It’s a meal full of sustenance, eaten as everyday food across the country. Ogbono is an African mango seed soup with palm oil and spices, to which meat, fish and vegetables can be added. It’s most often eaten with pounded yam. Puff-puff, also called bofrot, is the West African version of a doughnut. It’s a small, sweet ball of dough that’s deep-fried and eaten as a dessert or appetiser.

What can you see and do in Nigeria?

Nigeria is a multi-faceted country, where you can driving through open savannahs one moment and making your way along paths through tropical rainforests the next. There are also the famous primate reserves, which you can reach by heading to the town of Calabar, the gateway to the rainforests of the Afi Mountains. The town also contains one of the oldest Christian churches in Africa, and relics of its slave-trading history. Lagos is the frenetic capital of Nigeria, a giddy mixture of sights, sounds, aromas, and tastes. Its street bars and clubs stay open well into the night and during the day you can laze on the promenade facing the Atlantic Ocean. The ancient natural fortress known as Olumo Rock is worth visiting too. It towers over the inland town of Abeokuta, and now contains a cultural museum, caves depicting the human history of the region, and local craft shops. Yankari National Park is a world eco-tourism centre, home to large herds of elephants.

What passport or visa requirements are there when visiting Nigeria?

Britain is not on the Nigerian list of visa-waiver countries, so you will have to organise a visa in order to enter the country. All visas are biometric, and you can get them at the OIS office in London. To obtain this visa your passport must still be valid for at least six months and have two blank pages. You’ll also need to submit passport photographs, bank statements, proof of accommodation, and a copy of your return ticket.
