MY LUFASI NATURE PARK EXPERIENCE (PHOTOS)

By  | 

Lufasi nature park made me remember this song on Sunday. “All things bright and beautiful. All creatures great and small. All things nice and wonderful. The lord God made them all”

It’s been two years since my family moved to the inner most part of the island and we only started exploring it recently. The Lufasi nature park is located at Ibeju Lekki (I will post a direction at the end of this post)

On entering, there was this feel of calmness I felt as we walked to where we had to pay a fee. We paid N2500 ( N1000 for adults 18 and above, N500 for kids)

I didn’t relent in talking pictures as soon as we were passed. I mean, the park was everything. Beautiful, Alive, Enchanting, Blissful, Gentle, Bright, Heavenly, Melting, Pleasant, Peaceful, Vibrant. I go on and on and on describing this park!

I will let the pictures do its work. Please enjoy.

We met Nnanna who sells fruit juice and chips in the park. He offered to be our tour guide. Fine and well spoken dude *winks*

Do you also know how Lekki came about? Let me tell you what Nnanna told us.

He said Ekki is actually a forest that holds one of the rarest trees in the world. The tree is called Ekki. So, Lagos and Ekki had to do a collaboration to form the Lekki axis. It made total sense to me. He took us to the Ekki forest and we saw the tree! LORD!!!! It was huge. The video on my Instagram page didn’t do justice to it. You should see for yourself. The tree has lots of values too. I wasn’t surprised.

This table was made with the Ekki tree and we tried lifting it. It felt like iron. It was super heavy compared to other tables there that was easy to lift.

We saw the baboons and the monkey. Nnanna said the monkey is a snub and the baboons are actually friendlier.

We met Oluwatobi Daniel in the park. He came to enjoy the goodness of the park too.

We had to rest a bit. We had fresh orange juice which costs N600 and the mixed fruit juice which costs N700. The chips costs N100 each and the biscuits N50. Very affordable! You won’t have to drain your bank account.

They also have a flower garden that also has a fragrance. I don’t know which flower exactly but it was good! Clean and fresh fragrance.

If you want to read, have some time alone, have a meeting with a few people, excursion, weekend outings with the family…I totally recommend the park. You will leave refreshed.

I really wished some soul touching music was going on in the park to compliment it all. The in-house DJ was not around. The park had quite a few people which was just fine or not.

There is absolutely no way I was going to forget talking about these ducks. They are very lovely creatures and it was first time having them so close. It’s been TV and text books. The white one can eat for Africa. Lol. Quite a bully and the way they run is quite funny and fascinating. We fed them with plantain chips and biscuits.

I learnt there is a yearly subscription of about N20,000 that allows four people to come around whenever they want. It’s described as a family package and I think it’s pretty cool.

The park also has an Animal pet Farm. I saw goats, horses, donkeys, monkeys, baboons, wild cat that was described as lazy, ducks. The tortoise wasn’t available when we got there.

Direction: If you are in Lagos, Find your way to Ajah (if you are coming from the mainland) Take a bus/ride going to Awoyaya. Stop at Majek Bus stop first gate. Lufasi Nature Park is at Majek Bus Stop. I am terrible with directions but I hope this is clear.

These are pictures of some flowers I took.
