The resort has been set in a rain forest region, in the peaceful neighbourhood and beautiful city of Lagos. With the resort occupying a land area of approximately 22 hectares. At the resort, you can have some quality time at the Omu creek, Omu water park and perks such as bungee jumping. The kids would totally love the Omu zoo and if you love animals, you would be in awe. Omu Resort is located at Bogije Town, almost opposite Lakowe Lakes Golf Course, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos.

Whispering Palms


It is located at Badagry and offers a combination of beautiful scenery, unique cuisine, interesting activities, sun and the sea. The beach resort offers is a peaceful gateway for romance and relaxation. Are you ready?

Nike Art Gallery


If you have an eye for at then Nike Art Gallery is a wonderful place to visit with your children. It has a lot of art works on display which includes bead work, painting, drumming, singing and dancing, traditional loom weaving, indigo dyeing, embroidery, stone works and carving, etc. This intriguing gallery is located by the 3rd Roundabout, Lekki- Epe Expressway, Lagos.



If you are on a budget and you want to have a nice time with the family then you should visit any of the Spurs restaurant at Ikeja or Victoria Island. They are keen on family values and it would sure feel like home away from home. Try the seafood platter and thank me later.

High Impact Amusement Park


Hi-impact Planet is the latest amusement park on the block. A lot of positive reviews have come from visiting this park. The inner kid in you would be thrilled with outdoor rides and exciting indoor games.

They boast of state-of-the-art facilities such as luxurious apartments, a Clinic, multi-purpose hall, and souvenir shops with variety of gifts. The catch here that might just get you moving this weekend is the promise of uninterrupted power supply (your ride wouldn’t stop mid-air) and this is a part of their effort to make the experience worth your while and safe for every member of the family.
