Top 5 Destinations Suitable For Family Vacations In Nigeria

With the hike in fuel price,
incomprehensibly high foreign exchange rate and the cost of cooking ingredients
in Nigeria at the moment, a 
lot of people are shying away from the
mere thoughts of having any form of celebration, throwing parties or planning a
trip to any exotic location outside the country but as it often rightly said
“black don’t crack.”

However, I implore you to make the most of these situations,
albeit how negative they may seem, to explore the beauty and hidden resources
of Nigeria.
Take some time out with family members and
friends, stick to visiting some of the best resorts in
and taking a well-deserved weekend treat at some of the hidden
beauties in Nigeria, rather than splurging on a vacation outside the country.
Here is a list of 5 of some of the top
holiday destinations ideal for a family vacation in Nigeria:

Warm Spring Resort


Ikogosi Warm Spring is one of the major
tourist attractions in Nigeria. It is a natural wonder of a pure warm water
spring that flows side by side with a cold spring. There is a local myth
surrounding the history of the spring.
An interesting version states that the two
springs (Warm and Cold) were the wives of the same man, they turned into spring
water after the rivalry between them resulted in a rift. The ill-tempered wife
is believed to have turned to the popular warm spring while the cool-tempered
wife turned to cold spring water. The husband is also believed to have
turned into the undulating hills that surrounds the springs.
Many of the villagers worship the springs
as their deities. The point where the two springs meet is a main centre of
attraction. The resort situated around the warm spring has various
accommodation and recreational facilities suitable for family vacation.

Rock, Abeokuta


Olumo Rock in Abeokuta, Ogun State is one
of the most visited tourist attractions in Nigeria. The massive granite outcrop
is a natural wonder that served as a hideout and stronghold for the indigenes
of Egbaland during a civil war in the 19th century. The rock sheltered many of
the war survivors, who were reported hidden in caves located inside the rocks
to evade enemy attacks.
With a modern elevator available for
tourists who have a hard time climbing, a relaxation spot at the top of the
rock and an aerial view of the city of Abeokuta at its peak, Olumo Rock is
definitely one of the best places to visit on next family vacation.
