Lagos Holidays Overview

 

The Nigerian city of Lagos is the most populous city in Africa with a population of over 8 million. It is located on the Atlantic shores and is the capital city of the State of Lagos. This is a high rainfall area of West Africa with two rainy seasons during the year.
 
It used to be the Capital city of Nigeria until the capital was moved to Abuja in 1991. The city has an interesting history given that it used to be a major centre of the west African slave trade. It served as the capital of British protectorate of Nigeria from 1914 until independence in 1960. Throughout the years, its oil wealth has guaranteed rapid growth making it the most prosperous city in Nigeria. It is the economic, financial and business centre with a large concentration of multinational corporations and a large expatriate community. Its port is one of the largest in Africa and handles a large amount of oil and petroleum products which account for 20% of Nigeria’s GDP.
 
The transport and communication systems are highly developed. The road network in Lagos is the most extensive in West Africa though some roads are not very well maintained. Traffic jams are common during peak hours. Transit buses and taxi motorcycles serve as the main means of transport. The city of Lagos is the end point of 3 major Trans African Highways; the Trans-West African Coastal Highway, The Trans-Sahara Highway and The Lagos-Mombasa Highway.
 
The official language in Lagos is English. Nigerians have a passion for sport and in particular soccer. When the national team, nicknamed the “super eagles” are playing, everything literally grinds to a halt. The music and film industry are also amongst the most vibrant on the continent of Africa; Afrobeat and highlife were born in Lagos.
