Lagos — 6 nights

Protected from the Atlantic by sand spits and barrier islands, Lagos quickly grew into a mega city due to its location, and currently operates one of the continent's largest and busiest ports.
Take a break from the city and head to Lekki Conservation Centre and Atican Beach. Museum-lovers will appreciate Nike Art Gallery and Ogirikan Art Gallery. When in Lagos, make a side trip to see The Henna Place in Lekki, approximately Lekki away. There's much more to do: explore and take pictures at Amani Spa & Wellness, look for all kinds of wild species at LUFASI Nature Park, pause for some serene contemplation at The Cathedral Church of Christ, and head outdoors with Elegushi Beach.
