Nike’s Tours 

From the moment you arrive until you walk into the departure lounge at one of the airports, you are a guest. Spacious, comfortable rooms await you in the guest houses attached to her homes and art centers. Meals are offered at all of the guest houses to suit your schedule (the basic fare is Nigerian, but you can make special requests). The staff is there to assist you, and anything that they can’t provide directly they will help you find in Nigeria, from internet services to first class medical care, a tennis game or a trip to the beach.

General Notes on Travel in Nigeria


Security: As you prepare for your journey, friends and acquaintances may look at you like you are crazy for planning a visit to Nigeria. Nigeria has a fearsome reputation, and we have to admit that reputation is not entirely undeserved. We don’t want to minimize the difficulties of living and traveling in Nigeria, and we urge you to read advisories on travel to Nigeria from the US State Department or the British Foreign Office before you decide to come.


Travel Arrangements: Nike’s associates in the US will be in touch with you by email or telephone to assist you in planning your visit to Nigeria. Nike and her colleagues in Nigeria want to know what your particular interests might be; let them know if there are any places or any people you are anxious to see. 

travelScheduling Your Visit: Nigeria doesn’t have the four seasons of the higher latitudes, but the weather patterns are pronounced enough to make some months better than others for a visit. The “big rains” come from late April through early July, and the heavy downpours make travel difficult. July through September are the best months for a visit, when cool breezes and occasional rains drop the temperatures throughout the country (you may even want to bring a long sleeve shirt to Ogidi). The “little rains” come from September through early November, another good time to see Nigeria. In December and January high winds blowing across the Sahara – “the harmattan” -bring clouds of dust that block the sun and drop the temperatures, but some people find the dust irritates asthma or other bronchial problems, and the dust casts a yellowish pallor over everything that is aesthetically unattractive. The temperatures begin to rise in January, and March/April are the warmest months in Nigeria.
