Nigeria is one of the countries of the world that is blessed with unique tourist attractions. In fact, tourism is one of the major sources of revenue in Nigeria. It is quite unfortunate that many Nigerians are missing out on these blessings left for our own enjoyment by God.
It is also surprising that some foreigners are even in better positions to tell an average Nigerian the most interesting places to visit in his own country.
1. Olumo Rock (Ogun state)

3. Yankari National Park (Bauchi state)
Yankari is one of the most popular destinations for tourists in Nigeria. Do not allow the current insecurity in Northern Nigeria to deter you from getting to see this rare game park.
A lot of the endangered species of animals scarcely found anywhere in the country are actually still in existence at Yankari National Park. You will get to see some animals you never dreamed were even in existence. The wonderful thing about the entire story is the way these animals are kept and taken care of in large numbers like they’ve never been wild animals.

The ancient town of Arochukwu may be the last place to ever cross your mind when it comes to touring, but I tell you that you’ve missed something great for so long and should not continue to.
If you are someone who values and cherishes nature and rich culture, Arochukwu is one of the best places for you to see. There are caves, waterfalls, and lots of mind-blowing nature wonders and structures of our cultural heritage there.

Some refer to this grove as the cradle of the Yoruba cultural traditions. The dense forest of the Osun Sacred Grove is one of the last remnants of primary high forest in southern Nigeria.
