About Lekki Conservation Centre
The Lekki Conservation Centre is situated on a 78-hectare piece of land. This land consists of swamps, savannah habitats, and thick shrubs to give that amazing rainforest feel. The LCC is about 15 minutes away from Victoria Island by car. Of course, it may take longer when there is traffic, a common situation on Lagos roads.
The Lekki Conservation Centre is one of the top natural urban parks in Nigeria. This is because of its natural habitat, different species of animals, serene environment, and attractive canopy walk.

Both help in educating visitors about the environment and showing the different threats to the environment.
The Lekki Conservation Centre was established in 1990. One of the goals of the NCF is to ensure that this conservation centre will reveal the importance of reserves to Nigerian tourism.
