The Lekki Conservation Centre

I visited the Lekki Conservation Centre with a group of friends last Sunday.  It was a nice experience getting lost in the middle of nowhere.

The Lekki Conservation Centre, is a conservation initiative to protect wildlife. It is located in Lagos, Nigeria's most populous city and is  quietly nestled in the face of sprawling urban development.
The objective of the centre is the promotion of environmental protection and the prevention of  poaching by surrounding communities.  It also serves as a tourist centre for local and international visitors.
Contrary to popular belief, Africans don't live in trees, only monkeys and baboons do :-)
The Lekki Conservation Centre was officially opened in 1990 by the Duke of Edinburgh
The Centre has a variety of fauna and flora, and it is also said crocodiles and alligators once lurked in its swamps, though we didn't see any.
