What are the most spectacular roads in Nigeria?

Located in the western part of Africa, Nigeria shares borders with the Republic of Benin, Chad, Cameroon and Niger. Covering an area of about 923,768 square kilometers, Nigeria is the most populous country on the continent. It’s located in the tropics, having a very humid climate.

It’s important to plan carefully when it is the best time to drive across the country, as the weather varies from tropical in the south to arid in the north, with a rainy season from April to October and a dry season from November to March. Due to the defiant climate of the country, with significant variations in temperature and rainfall, the country has evident transportation problems during the rainy season, especially on unpaved roads. The most spectacular roads in the country include the winding road to Obudu Mountain, a peak at 1.652m (5,419ft) above sea level located on the Obudu Plateau; and driving the Mamfe-Ekok Road, one of the toughest drives in the world.

The road from Mamfe to Ekok is one of the most challenging roads running from Cameroon to Nigeria. It’s a remarkable road trip.

Obudu Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 1.652m (5,419ft) above the sea level, located on the Obudu Plateau in Cross River State, in South Nigeria, bordering Cameroon to the east.

Trans-Sahara Highway is one of the most brutal roads in the world. Running for 4,500km through Algeria, Niger and Nigeria, it's a real test that attracts the brave and the crazy.

Ekok bridge is  a continuous concrete box girder deck with six spans on the Cross river on the Cameroon-Nigeria border. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

Lagos is the largest city in Nigeria, but it’s also one of Africa's most diverse and exciting places to visit. You're not just visiting Lagos; you're going on a journey.
