Adventurous in Abeokuta: A Guide to Fun

Hey loves! Welcome back to my blog💛.

This week my siblings and I visited Ogun state’s capital city —Abeokuta, and it was an adventure to say the least!Olumo rock Abeokuta

We’ve been going to Abeokuta for years but whenever we would visit, we’d stay indoors and watch TV. This time, we decided to go full tourist mode and explore the legendary Egba land in all of it’s beauty. So we started where most tourists would. Yup, you guessed it—Olumo Rock

Our day started with an amazing visit to Olumo Rock, which is legendary for saving the people of Egba Land from war several years ago.

There were so many things to see. From the Egba people built under the rock, to the shrines and priestesses who were still till date.

This was our second time visiting Olumo rock and it was just as fun the second time as it was the first time.

If you google ‘places to go in Abeokuta’ you’d probably see Green Legacy Resort on at least five of those lists. The Green Legacy Resort has it’s own Wildlife Zoo, Cinema, Library and so much more. We visited both the Zoo and Cinema but didn’t have enough time to visit the Library(which we hear is huge, just like every other part of the resort).

Here’s our time in pictures

Abeokuta is filled with natural rocks and trees enough to make you feel like you’re in the jungle. Of course we took advantage of the beautiful scenery and whipped out our camera every chance we got. Here are some of the pics we took

  1. Yinka. You left me in Lagos and went all the way to Abeokuta, bringing only pictures for me to salivate on. God is seeing you.

    Lovely post, by the way. I’ll leave you for Dubai very soon.
