Nigeria Flag

Nigeria , officially the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is a federal constitutional republic comprising thirty-six states and one Federal Capital Territory. The country is located in West Africa and shares land borders with the Republic of Benin in the west, Chad and Cameroon in the east, and Niger in the north. Its coast lies on the Gulf of Guinea, a part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the south. The capital city is Abuja. The three largest and most influential ethnic groups in Nigeria are the Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba. The people of Nigeria have an extensive history, and archaeological evidence shows that human habitation of the area dates back to at least 9000 BCE. The Benue-Cross River area is thought to be the original homeland of the Bantu migrants who spread across most of central and southern Africa in waves between the 1st millennium BCE and the 2nd millennium CE. The name Nigeria was created from a portmanteau of the words Niger and Area, taken from the River Niger running through Nigeria. This name was coined by Flora Shaw, the future wife of Baron Lugard, a British colonial administrator, in the late 19th century. Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa and the eighth most populous country in the world, and with a population of over 148 million it is the most populous 'black' country in the world. It is a regional power, is listed among the "Next Eleven" economies, and is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. The economy of Nigeria is one of the fastest growing in the world, with the International Monetary Fund projecting a growth of 9% in 2008 and 8.3% in 2009.

Tinapa as the pivot of tourism in Nigeria - Abuja
Tinapa as the pivot of tourism in Nigeria From all that is gathering around Nigeria's socio-economic atmosphere, it is quite apparent that the country is at the threshold of an important revolution and transformation in her tourism industry following the advent of Tinapa. For the first time, Nigeria republic can now boast of a world class business resort, capable of not only changing the ugly visage of the country but also attract enormous investment; an outcome of which will skyrocket her annual GDP. Understandably, the project was initially dismissed as impossible, unrealizable and a figment of Governor Donald Duke's imagination owing to the fact that very little in previous administration was accomplished in transforming the tourism industry to a sta...

Yankari National Park of Nigeria The Best Park for Observing Wildlife - Gombe
Yankari National Park of Nigeria The Best Park for Observing Wildlife Yankari is Nigeria's best park for observing wildlife. With a bit of luck you may come across buffaloes, waterbucks, bushbucks, hyenas, leopards, plenty of baboons and the odd lion. While the park's animal population has suffered from poaching it still has some big draw cards like the 500-strong population of elephants and the bird-watching is excellent. The best time to see animals is from late December to late April, before the rains, when the thirsty animals congregate at the Gaji River. You're permitted to drive your own vehicle if you take a guide, otherwise the park has a safari truck that takes two hour tours. Yankari's other great attraction is the incredibly picturesque Wikki Warm Spring, near the park ...

Beaware from the Scams and Warning in Nigeria during Tour - Abuja
Beaware from the Scams and Warning in Nigeria during Tour Expect to pay bribes to police officers. It's often cheap - abut 100 naira. A request for a bribe often comes with this sentence anything for us for the weekend. The bribe situation gets worse as you travel deeper into Nigeria and towards Benin. Expect delays at the Seme border post (often closed because of corruption). There, requests for bribes are blatant and increase in value depending on your race and country of origin. You will be arrested several times, have a few arguments but in the end you pay the bribe to get your passport back. On the Benin side of the border things are pretty much the same - so make sure you have some CFA or naira - never flash any foreign currency like dollars - this is asking.
