Earlier in the week ( precisely Sunday 27th of September 2020) we celebrated world Tourism day.
I and a couple of friends visited Lekki Conservation Center on Saturday September 26th 2020 but guess what? It rained…It started raining while some of us were on our way and some of us were already there. When we got there, we thought that we will be allowed after the rain stopped. However, we were told that it was not safe to go through the board walk while it was still wet, and it’s the board walk that leads to the canopy walk (which is the longest canopy walk in Africa!) and some of the floor games.
The following day, it did not rain and it was still weekend, it did not also rain on 1st of October which is a public holiday in Nigeria because it is Independence day. We would however make our next visit to Lekki Conservation Center during dry season/ harmattan season since there is no way we can determine if it will rain or not if we go on another day during raining season.
Here are the the things we got up to and you can try out while you are there:
Networking: I had invited friends to be a part of the hangout and they in turn invited some of their friends; so we got to meet new people, interact and gist about some aspects of life; I love jist so it was an exciting time for me and I’m pretty sure others enjoyed it as well. We introduced ourselves,talked a bit about some of the things we do in career, business and creative aspects and more…
Enjoying Nature: Enjoyed the beautiful scenes at Lekki Conservation Center and also got to see some of the animals: monkeys and a peacock. When you are there, hide your edibles from the monkeys when you see them approaching because they can come and grab them, also protect your phone and other valuables as well.
Picnic with good food: We had finger foods, a main meal,drinks and water during the hangout as well as drinks and water. The food was sumptuous and delicious, very well enjoyed while we wined and dined.
Taking pictures and videos: They were beautiful spots to take nice pictures which we did. Click click here and click on LCC to view more pictures and videos.
Memories are very important. They remind us of people, stories, cultures, places, feelings, experiences etc
Learning new things: Learnt new things about Wetland, Mona Monkeys, Fish species etc. For instance, over one billion people make a living from wetlands.
We saw the start of the board walk but we were not able to walk through because it was wet. On our next visit we would love to:
Walk through the board walk
Walk through the Canopy walk
Play the floor games
I look forward to also sharing the experience afterwards.
