The Capital of Nigeria, Abuja, boasts a number of tourist attractions in the city of Abuja itself and nearby. Although Abuja is geared for business, it is a remarkably attractive city with beautiful buildings, plenty of parks and green areas and luxury hotel accommodation, including hotels with casinos.
Sightseeing in Abuja
Many of the sightseeing attractions in Abuja are architectural, but there are some unusual natural attractions that make Abuja a one-of-a-kind city: Aso Rock and Zuma Rock.
Abuja is dominated by the magnificent Aso Rock. Reminiscent of Ayer’s Rock in Australia, Aso Rock towers over the city – a 400m high monolith at the foot of which you will find the Nigerian Presidential Palace, the National Assembly and the Nigerian Supreme Court.
Nearby, also in the Maitama and Asokoro districts near Aso Rock, you will find the Millenium Park and Tower and the Abuja Children’s Park and Zoo, the latter a perfect destination for a day out if your family is accompanying you on your visit.
The Abuja National Museum is a must see, and the Abuja African Arts & Crafts Village in the central business district offers a one-stop shop for curious and gifts to take home. Zuma Rock is a slightly smaller monolith, just outside of Abuja, where you can go climbing.
Stay at a luxury hotel and casino in Abuja
After a day of sightseeing, why not come back to one of Abuja’s top casino hotels and top off your day with a game of poker, baccarat, American roulette or blackjack and video slot machines at the Abuja Sheraton Hotel & Towers.
