Best Time To Travel To Nigeria
We recommend traveling to Nigeria in the dry season anytime from November to January. If visiting from February to May it is dusty from the harmattan winds and quite warm! The north is generally hot and arid due to its proximity to the Sahel, and the south is cooler but humid. There is plenty to do in Nigeria such as visit the Yoruba shrines, the famous Zuma Rock, Jos Plateau, the Enemabia warm spring, and the capital, Abuja, which has plenty of lively things to do and see. Who knows you may be there during a festival or two? Notable ones include the Durbar and the Tuk-Ham festival.
