Check out our cheap flights to Lagos from the US today and discover Africa for yourself!

Lagos is the largest city in Nigeria, and one of the busiest in Africa, with incredible beaches and great shopping opportunities, from the likes of Bar Beach and Lekki Beach to the cosmopolitan center of Lekki which is home to the Silverbird Galleria.

The city is also home to a diverse culinary scene, as well as a famous nightlife scene too!

Made up of a number of islands, Lagos is Portuguese for lakes and the city is connected by bridges, with the Third Mainland Bridge being one of the longest in Africa.

Each of the islands has something different to offer, whether it be shopping at Victoria Island, the laidback beach culture at Bar Beach, or the markets of Lagos Island.

Also, be sure to take a tour of the country’s National Museum to learn more about Nigerian history and culture, and head out to the Lekki Conservation Centre to see the work being done to preserve the local wildlife.
