#KemiFilaniTours The KFB experience at the Lekki Conservation Centre's Canopy walk and Savannah!!! (photos, videos)

Kemi Filani and Penzaar

Ding Dong..it's time for our monthly KFB Tour reflection!

For the Newbies, the #KemiFilaniTours is more like a travel journal, where KFB visits tourist /historic/fun centers (locally/internationally) and gives you the gist. 

So far, KFB has visited Jos (HERE), the Olumo rock in Abeokuta (HERE), the ultra modern amusement Hi-impact park (HERE), the Agodi Gardens and Zoo in Ibadan (HERE) and now Lagos!


This time around, it was just me, the KFB tour director, Penzaar of Penzaarvilleafrica and our amazing friend, Erad (a graphics designer) that embarked on the trip.

Beautiful KFBer Peju, who won the lucky slot (HERE) was supposed to join the trip but she bailed out on the morning of the D-day due to unavoidable reasons :(

Entrance

Lekki Conservation Centre (LCC) is one of Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) foremost conservation project site. Located on the renowned Lekki Peninsula, LCC covers a land area of 78 hectare. Administratively, LCC is situated in Eti Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State.
The Lekki conservation centre  is a great place to enjoy nature & get away from the hustle and bustle of busy Lagos life.

Nice trees, quiet and peaceful and some animals to be seen.

One of the Peacocks

On our arrival, we were greeted by a cute monkey and  Peacocks.

We just couldn’t resist but watch in complete amazement. We were however s told by the tour guides not be noisy because the animals will get scared and melt into the woods.

That is the Monkey on the white object
 We went to the reception hall, paid our fees (N1000) to enter the centre and another (N1000) to use the Canopy Walk facility!



 And then a tour guide led us into the forested foreground of the park via a very long wooden bridge where we were  confronted with thick with beautiful trees on either side of the elevated wooden path raised above the earth.
Oh la la!
A quick pose at the starting point

 The Lekki Conservation Centre (LCC) canopy walkway, built with metal pillars, is the main attraction to the destination.

Oya Dab!

The aerial foot bridge is 401 metres long, 0.6 meters wide and 22.5 meters high, thus making it the longest in Africa.
Penzaar
 It is not recommended for persons below the age of 14 years. Even for adults, it is very challenging and for those afraid of heights, they should not venture into it while, nursing mother should not back their child to climb.

Trio..the tourists

Us again






It was scary at first. I couldn't look down but by the time we reached the fourth bridge, I had become used to it!






After about 20minutes we finished walking through the walk way and headed to the Savannah grassland. The savannah grassland is so beautiful, it has several huts and can be used for photo shoots, meeting points or for relaxation.

Some other tourists

Adeola joined us later....


After relaxing for about 20 minutes, we left the Savannah. We had to use these big boots cos the pathway to the main entrance was swampy.


Whoop everyone loves KFB!
It was a scary but fun experience!
