Tucked right in the highbrow district of Lagos, Lekki conservative centre pride herself with the longest walk way across the natural reserve in the continent of Africa. Undoubtedly, a quiet stranger in the highly trafficked Chevron area of Lekki –Epe Expressway, with thousands of daily vehicular movement yet Lekki Conservative Centre is unknown to many Lagos residents and enjoy no conspicuous signage.
A visit to the tourist centre will amaze your imagination but will quickly remind you of undiluted nature while your adrenaline traverses, you will witness some of the best species of Mona monkeys, colourful fishes, crocodile and of course a ninety year old tortoise. Moving along the 1315 feet walkway with a 25meters elevation and swings here and there, you’ll marvel at the greenery of the mangrove forest with a breath-taking view of the swamps that housed crocodiles and mamba snakes as well as a glimpse of the Atlantic Ocean.
It is quite an incredible exposé to nature’s lovers and holiday makers especially situated in an expansive natural habitat in a highly urbanised island where space has become a challenge that led to the reclaiming of the commercial capital shoreline for millennial edifice.
Founded 1980, the centre officially known as Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) is the premier Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) dedicated to nature conservation and sustainable development in Nigeria with a vision of “a Nigeria where people prosper while living in harmony with nature”.
