There are a lot of places in Nigeria that a lot of us do not know of. These locations are not only picturesque but hold a potential to generate adequate revenue from both foreign and local visitors.

These are seven places in Nigeria you should probably add to your travel list in 2022…

1. Ogbunike Cave


Maldives, is that you? No! This cave is located in Anambra State, Nigeria. This cave has some spiritual significance. As a result, there are a few rules you must follow if you plan on visiting this location. Women for example, are not allowed in the cave while menstruating.

Transcorp Hilton what! Kajuru castle is an actual castle in Kaduna State. The castle was built in the 1980s and is described on Wikipedia as an African version of the Bavarian Castle in a very grand 19th-century Romanesque revival style. If that isn’t fancy, I don’t know what is.
