The best time to fly to Nigeria is during April, but great deals can be found at other times. If you are looking for warm weather when you arrive off of your flight to Nigeria then February is statistically the hottest. June is historically the period with most rainfall.

Located on the Western coast of Africa, Nigeria is a fascinating, unusual destination. It is also one that has been embroiled in years of civil war and sectarian conflict between the 250 Nigerian tribes. As a result, only the hardiest of tourists arrive on flights to Nigeria to explore the country. This is a great shame, for Nigeria is an extremely diverse destination with some amazing attractions. In the southeast are the Obudu Hills, which give way to beaches along the coast of the Gulf of Guinea. In the middle and southwest of the country are rainforest, the Lagos estuary and savannah. The Sahel melts into the Sahara in the north.

Lagos is the largest city and arrival point for most flights to Nigeria, but no longer the capital. Most visitors spend some time here, acclimatizing to the surroundings.

If you are planning on booking a flight to Nigeria, be aware that the current travel advice from the government is to avoid all but non-essential travel to Nigeria.

What is the best way to travel around Nigeria?

Driving is not recommended for tourists visiting Nigeria, or at least not without a hired driver on hand. Due to security hazards, road safety issues, and a network of roads in poor condition, travellers are advised to use extreme caution when travelling by car without a local guide or other assistance. Car hire with a driver is the best choice for those who want to drive, with multiple services available in the country. Taxis and buses are available to get from town to town, but most major lines require advance booking notice. Easy Taxi offers service in Lagos, but consider haggling to reduce meter charges. Long-distance coaches are cheaper and more readily available than flights with Greener Lines and ABC transport offering the best services.

What are some things to do in Nigeria?

Travellers visiting Nigeria for the first time will want to check out the many outdoor adventures and activities, including Zuma Rock, Olumo Rock, Yankari National Park, and the Tarkwa Bay Beach. Ibadan is home to a variety of unique architectural buildings and neighborhoods, as well as a university that helps fuel the city’s rich nightlife destinations. Emir’s Palace in Kano and the Gidan Makama Museum are also popular choices. The Gashaka Game Reserve is the most scenic national park in the state and home to 500+ types and species of birds.
Cross River National Park is home to curious ancient monoliths carved into the hills, and when security allows northern travel, Zaria’s old city is a must-see destination for history and ancient culture. The National Museum at Onikan on Lagos and the sacred shrine of Osogbo are popular, as well.

Do I need a passport to fly to Nigeria from Canada?

If you are a Canadian citizen or other international visitor flying to Nigeria, a passport is required for entry. Passports must be valid for at least six months beyond the intended date of departure from the country. Canadian nationals must also obtain a visa prior to their arrival in the country, as visas are required for all types of travel, including tourism and business travel.

The rail system is not very reliable, but is a cheap way of getting around.  There is a connection between Lagos and Kano and Port Harcourt and Maiduguri with some stopovers.

Several bus companies offer services around Nigeria. For travel away from the main, safe, cities, it is advisable to hire a car with a driver.
