It is an amazing place. The walk around the forest is refreshing. The flora and fauna just keeps you engrossed. Though we could spot monkey,horn bill ,lizard and tortoise. Crocodiles though mentioned we could not locate. View from tree house was beautiful and refreshing. A very good place to unwind with natural surroundings. One can sit and relax for few hours. The place needs better house keeping and maintenance. Providing a guide will be more helpful for the serious
tourist. Overall a nice place for weekend gateway. Lekki Conservation Center is located at Km-19, Lagos-Epe Expressway Lekki.
