What is the best time to book flights to Nigeria?

Mainly there are two seasons in Nigeria, dry or winter and wet or summer. Jos town has the most pleasant climate in all of Nigeria. Rest of the country has hot weather. Northern parts of the country are hot and dry whereas southern parts are hot and humid. So the best time to visit Nigeria is from October to January. Peak season lies between December to January as most Nigerian festivals occur during this part of the year.

Northern and southern parts also differ in timing of wet season. Rainy season occurs from April to September in North and in South it is between March to November. There are fewer crowds in off season and flights are cheaper than the peak season. However, if you want to visit Nigeria during peak season, we would recommend you to book flights few months in advance.

Where can I stay in Nigeria?

You can find five star and international hotels in Lagos and other major towns. However, these are fully booked during peak season and you have to book in advance. Lagos is the most congested city not only in Nigeria but also in Africa as well. Most of the good hotels are only available on this island. These hotels are usually really expensive in peak season but alternate options are also available.

You can stay in rest houses which are run by government. These are available throughout the country. Colonial-style houses and bungalows are used for this purpose. Another option is to get accommodation from Christian missions. They will offer you basic enmities at reasonable price. Major Nigerian towns also have sporting clubs which offer meals and accommodation at cheap rates. However, you have to purchase a temporary membership before your stay in these clubs.
