Nigeria

Nigeria is the most populated country on the African continent. Nigerians believe that the history of humanity began from one of their cities – Ife. Tourists are mainly interested in attending a broad range of Nigerian cultural events, although many are attracted by its nature, particularly its waterfalls and rainforests.

Time and mobile connection

Time in Nigeria is the same as in London.

Phone coverage is quite good - even in many remote villages in Nigeria, the mobile phone signal is often strong.

Your home phone company will charge you roaming fees, so check roaming rates with your mobile provider before travelling to Nigeria, or buy a local prepaid (no contract) plan. In big cities there are a lot of calling centres where you pay cash and dial the numbers you want to call.
