7 Tourist Centres You Didn’t Know Existed in Nigeria

There are extremely beautiful places and untapped tourist centres in Nigeria with long stretches of exotic beaches, lush mountains, well-preserved tradition and culture. Like me, many of you may think the only cool tourists’ spots to visit are Olumo Rock in Abeokuta, Ogun state, Idanre Hills in Ondo, or Ikangusi and Erin Ijesha waterfalls in Ekiti and Osun state respectively.  

Well, Ink and Pen’s Blog – Rapport Naija presents you 7 great places in Nigeria you probably didn’t know about.

1. Gashaki-Gumpti National Park located in Taraba state, Nigeria.
