Camping

Sheraton Hotel

Verified: over 3 years ago
GPS: 9.064750, 7.483180
Alt.: Unknown
The Sheraton Hotel is not to be recommended anymore, since they recently raised their camping price to 1000% (10.000Naira/45,50€) and you have to pay for 5 days in advance without getting a refund when leaving earlier. Things might change to the better again if they eventually come to their senses. Camping is on a spot of grass behind the hotel with a nice view on the lit National Mosque and you can use the ablutions of the squash court and the pool.

(Turn right before the main barrier if traveling from Nigeria into Benin) Will have to double back on this road to cross into Benin (Not that professional anymore)

Truck drivers come to sleep in their hammocks. We camped on our tents behind The gas station. No showers or toilets, but quiet, calm and secured. There's also a little hotel so we guess it has restaurant and restrooms but the place to camp is nice for one night.

Neblee Hotel

Alt.: 28.2 masl
A hotel located not to far from the New Camaroon Conulate this Hotel has room from 5000 to 15000. Meals and drinks are available on sight and secured parking inside the grounds. Paid Nigerian Police work as night gaurd and the staff tried hard to please by helping with money exchanges and more. Regular power outages are the norm in the city but the hotel has generators. AC was unreliable. Access is in an unassuming, uninviting alley but always has somebody to open the door either honk or knock. Showers are available but you are likely to take a bucket shower. Wifi was available when it was to deal breaker and was more reliable than the AC

I can not recommend this place because they change prices like they want. But there are others here in this area. So maybe better to take one of them😉

Small-scale, but nice attraction. We paid 5000 for the two of us what was quite overpriced. The coordinates are to the guide's house, the monoliths are close. The guide has some crazy theories about the sculptures.

A nice Tex Mex restaurant in a residential area in Lagos (Lekki). Great cuisine, freshly cooked and nice variety. Good place if you want a little break from african cuisine. Great service and music. A bit expensive. Probably not for a backpacker's budget.

A very nice mini natural reserve. Not expensive: 1000 naira entrance fee and an extra 1000 if you want to walk onto canopy bridge, which is worth it btw. Open every day from 8.30 to 5pm. You will definitely see the monkeys and fish but you may see other species if you are lucky
