It is true that Lagos is the heart of Nigeria and it lures the crowds – both local from other states and tourists from other parts of the world. As a result, some prominent features of the city include its traffic-clogged streets, as well as the almost non-existent sense of space and calm. Those seeking serenity, however, should not be put off, the city still offers a number of under-the-radar spots where visitors can escape the crowds and enjoy a more sedate environment.

If you are looking to have some quiet time in Lagos, Jumia Travel has listed a few places where travelers can escape the hustle and have a marvelous and quiet time.

There are no wild animals in the centre, but you are almost certain to see monkeys, and if you get lucky you might see baby crocodiles and some snakes. Generally, you get the feeling you're no longer in Lagos.
