Nigeria Travel - Get The Best From Nigeria Travel Opportunities

Nigeria travel opportunities. When many foreigners think of Nigeria Africa, they still think of a people from the black race who live on trees, eat with bamboo spoons, and travel by horses. The naive ones even think we have tails!

Those class of people still live in the past. History has left them behind.

True, there was a time in the history of Nigeria that Nigeria travel was mainly by foot. At that time people walked long distances to move from place to place. Travel by treking use to be the norm because there was no other mode of transportation in Nigeria. People would travel days on foot to journey from one far away village to another.

Besides travel by foot, Nigerians were good at making wooden canoes. And so, travel by wooden canoes was the norm in riverine areas of Nigeria like the Niger Delta and Lagos Nigeria. People who lived in the riverine areas of Nigeria were also predominantly fishermen. So, their wooden canoes served two purposes . . . fishing and travel.

Well, things have moved.

First, people graduated from traveling by foot to traveling by bicycle. Then traveling by motorcycles and then cars.

Once upon a time, owning a car use to be a luxury. Ordinary people traveled by mass transit buses and lorries. Today, things have moved forward. Owning a car is no longer luxury. It is an essential part of every day life . . . it is a necessity.

In fact, in developed and industrialized cities like Lagos Nigeria, the number of cars on the roads are so much that traffic are sometimes near-chaotic. Now, some would argue that the chaotic traffic situations experienced in Lagos is not due mainly to the number of cars on the roads but the status of the roads.

True, Nigeria travel by roads is compounded by the poor state of the roads due to terrible potholes on the roads that make travel by road less than pleasant. The traffic situation in Lagos is also aggravated by the fact that many Lagos roads are two-lane roads whereas four-lane roads should be minimum for a state with a population as high as 15 million people and growing at a rate of 250,000 people per annum.

Nigeria travel systems have advanced. Nigeria has moved from traditional transport systems to more advanced technologies.

Yes, we do need better roads to make transportation by road a lot more fun. And, yes, the number of cars on the roads are not necessarily too many. The culprit of chaotic traffic situations are mainly bad roads and the attitude of motorists to traffic laws.

We have said a lot about travel by road. Let's not forget that our travel systems go beyond just roads. Air travel is also a popular and advanced means of transportation in Nigeria.

Nigeria has local and international airports across the country. In Lagos Nigeria, the Muritala Mohammed airport has both local and international travel wings.

The Muritala Mohammed international airport Lagos Nigeria is about the busiest international airport in Nigeria. Thousands of travellers are on hand each day travelling to such diverse destinations as Dubai, France, London, Ghana, the United States of America and hundreds of other destinations.

If you think Nigerians still live on trees, well . . . think again.
