12 Picture-Perfect Places To Visit In Nigeria.

TECNO |
October 15, 2019

Let’s do a little math shall we. If there are 36 states in Nigeria, a ton of tourist destinations, 12 months in a year and 1 of you, why exactly haven’t you calmed your nerves and treated yourself to one, two or maybe even twelve holidays in a year? 

Forget money, this life na one. And because we only want the very best for you, we’ve whipped up a list of 12 of the most picture-perfect tourist destinations the Giant of Africa and the winner in all things Jollof – Nigeria,  has to offer. To make your visits complete however, you’re going to need four things: 

  1. An active imagination
  2. A phone to call your friends with, to get them jealous over how much fun you’re having.
  3. . An amazing camera to capture all the action.
  4. . A great battery life to make sure you never miss a moment.

Hold your imagination, we have the remaining three wrapped up in one device, the TECNO Camon 12, but more on that later.

First, let’s check out the most picture-perfect destinations in Nigeria:

1. Erin Ijesha Water Falls, Osun State.

Just imagine being present here, taking a photo and having evidence in the highest definition on your phone that you took your bath outside in one of Nigeria’s most beautiful locations. Just imagine.

2. The Calabar Museum

Where do we even want to start from with the Calabar Museum? With everything from colonial artefacts to terra cotta antiquity, you’re going to have whiplash trying to capture every angle and every square inch of the museum. Again, we’ve got you covered.

3. Tarkwa Bay, Lagos.

The beach, the sun, the ocean? Is Instagram ready for your heat?

4. Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary, Cross River.

You visited a forest reserve with endangered species like drill monkeys, chimpanzees and gorillas? High-res pictures or it didn’t happen!

6. The National War Museum, Umuahia.

Home to relics of the tragic Biafra-Nigeria War, this is a truly unmissable location in Nigerian history.

7. Matsirga Waterfall, Kaduna.

Forget, Nigeria is fine. Just imagine being here and capturing all this beauty. This could be you, don’t trip.

8. Oguta Lake, Imo State.

This lake and its adjoining holiday complex are calling you and your family for a nice family vacation. Make sure to carry a great camera along to get all the memories.

9. Jos Wildlife Park.

Have I mentioned how very blessed we are in Nigeria? Head on over to Jos with your camera to see it live in action, they even have an elephant!

10. Olumo rock, Ogun State.

Giant rock, filled with history and some descendants of the original inhabitants? What’s not to love?

11. Idanre Hills, Ondo State.

Warning: no amount of preparation will get you ready for the beauty that is Idanre Hills. Our advice, bring the TECNO Camon 12 along.

Now speaking of the Camon 12, check out our last location:

12. The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Ibadan.

This beautiful location was home to the TECNO CAMission camp competition, where the next level features of the newly released Camon 12 were put to the test. Using the superpowers of the Camon 12, 24 unlockers were tasked with the responsibility of capturing low-light, macro and wide angle photos.

After the eviction, eight people made it to the final where the three best were announced as winners. Their grand prize? A trip to a destination in Europe. Just peep their photos and understand why they won.

Now don’t fret if you missed the chance to be a part of this competition, there’s always the chance to improve your photography skills and capture all the best moments, in High-Definition no less, using the TECNO Camon 12.

I mean, just look at:

If great pictures, long battery life and so much more are features you’re looking for in a phone, the Camon 12 is calling your name, answer it!
