Abeokuta has it all: impressive sights and sounds, intense cultural experiences and peaceful natural retreats just to be experienced & come face to face with. Each destination within this grand city offers an opportunity for adventure, plenty of sights to gawk over and incredible experiences to cross off.

According to wiki “beokuta is the largest city and state capital of Ogun State in southwest Nigeria. It is situated on the east bank of the Ogun River, near a group of rocky outcrops in a wooded savanna”

With so many things to do and places to see, you might be left feeling indecisive, just the way I was until www.visitnigerianow.com came through.

We explored, on the index of the most renowned destinations, part of which were: OLUMO ROCK
NATIONAL MUSEUM ABEOKUTA
THE ARTISTIC IGUNUKO HOUSE
CENTENARY HALL
THE KUTI’S HERITAGE MUSEUM
ALAKE’S PALACE
ADIRE MALL

For me, the olumo rock, amongst others was the most magical. The fantasticaly friendly atmosphere on the topmost of the rock will have you hooked within moments.

Even though i was a little nervours whilst climbing to the top, Olumo rock is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Africa. The city of Abeokuta derives its name from this rock. Abeokuta meaning “under the rock” is reminiscent of how the people of Egba kingdom used this great rock as a fortress during the inter-tribal wars of the 19th century.Till date, the destination remain a Legendary one.

It was also overtly exciting, to have come face to face with the legendarily artistic “Igunuko house”, the “centenary hall”, the ” National Museum Idi-Aba” & the palace of HRH Alake of Egba land.

I couldn’t help but visit/pay homage & commemorate “The Kuti Heritage museum”, as no one talks about the history of Nigeria, without mentioning the legendary “Kuti” family, absolutely no one! A highly renowned & reputable family.

Haven shared my Abeokuta discovery with you, I hope you are to find your next adventure? Are you feeling inspired by my list of captivating destinations in Abeokuta metropolis? Thank you once again www.visitnigeria.com for the wonderful one.
