Package Itinerary

6 days 5 nights Abuja, Lokoja, Minna, Bida, and Zungeru.

One of the most interesting historical tours is the one that takes you through the city of Abuja down to Lokoja, Minna, Bida, and Zungeru. All the cities except Abuja have something in common- history of colonialism in Nigeria- from Lokoja to Minna, Bida and Zungeru, you will encounter Nigeria’s colonial history with existing relics. It promises to be fascinating.

Abuja has no shortage of fantastic architecture, some of which include the Abuja National Mosque, which was built in 1984 by Lodigiani Nigeria and designed by AIM Consultants. The mosque is an explorer’s delight and is open to the public except during prayer times. The National Christian Centre, with its neo-gothic design, is another architectural monument that will delight the tourist. Others include the National Library, the Ministry of Defence (built in the shape of a ship), ECOWAS Secretariat, and so much more.
