When to Visit

Although Nigeria can be visited throughout the year, the dry season, which typically runs from October to April, marks the best time to visit. This period hosts an array of vibrant festivals and offers the most promising weather for safaris and outdoor activities. However, for travellers seeking to avoid the crowds and experience more favourable accommodation rates, the wet season (May to September) also has its charm, with the scenery at its most lush and vibrant. Regardless of when you plan your journey, Nigeria's enchanting allure promises an unforgettable experience.
