Do We Have Safari Animals In Nigeria?

y'all know like the giraffes and zebras and stuff like they show on t.v. people ask me if i've ever seen 'em in nigeria but i never did. i know they prolly got some in the zoos but is there like an open ground where they roam around like you see on the animal network? or are they just in eastern/southern africa?

yes I've been there.Long ago though as a kid,what lovely memories for me.

I remember the journey from the east being unending

I think it's in Bauchi state (maybe somewhere else now due to all the state creations) It was beautiful with lots and lots of elephants.I remember the elephants and giraffes and different types of Monkeys.

We were escorted by a tour guide in this big open vehicle and I remember being so terrified that a snake or leopard could drop into the vehicle.

They also have beautiful resort style huts for lodging and restaurants with foods we could not pronounce as kids.

There were a lot of Oyibo people and I remember swimming in a natural pool,very cool and clear water the biggest scare for my siblings and I were the many baboons in the areas sorrounding the pool,staring at us.

Hopefully someday,I'll be able to take my kids there (when they arrive) and show them what fun I had as a kid.

Nigeria is truly beautiful unfortunately many will never know this due to the crime rate and corruption.

70km from Jos. about 360km from Abuja. Better have your own 4*4 to really enjoy the place and go in dry season to see the game

thanks y'all. i know there's ZOO's. but aint y'all seen on t.v. where there's a big ol' empty land just for the animals to roam or wateva. a kenyan told me they have it like that in their country and a lady that travelled to south africa said that they also have an area with giraffes and other animals like that.
