Frequently asked questions

When travelling in Nigeria you’ve got to have your wits about you. High crime rates in some parts of Nigeria mean careful planning is essential. Make sure you check the latest travel advisory from the Australian Government, which provides up-to-date information on risk and no-go areas. Generally, sticking to the cities is a good idea.


Road travel is the most common way to get around Nigeria, although in cities like Lagos you won’t find a shortage of yellow taxis and Ubers to get you to where you need to go. Ferries also operate in river cities. If you’re travelling across distances, internal flights are plentiful and are often the safest way to travel between cities.


You can comfortably travel to Nigeria all year long, but if you’re driven by seasons then January to May are the driest months. May and December/January are peak season for travellers to Nigeria.


While in Lagos, check out Tarkwa Bay Beach, the Lekki Conservation Centre, the Nike Art Gallery and the sacred Osun-Osogbo grove. If you’re in Abuja, make sure you stop by the Abuja National Mosque before heading to Jabi Lake for some water sports.


While in Nigeria, you want to check out the beaches, the vast offerings for nature lovers – including the incredible Osun-Osogbo sacred forest – and experience the culture of this energetic and complex country. Be sure to seek out music and art – you won’t be disappointed!


Light clothing is recommended as an antidote to the heat. Make sure you have somewhere safe to stash your bank cards, money and mobile phone. Insect-borne diseases can be a risk so make sure you see your doctor for advice before travelling to Nigeria.
