Nigeria is Africa's most populated country, home to 150 million people, overcrowded and chaotic; it's definitely not on the usual tourist trail. Globe Trekker Adela Ucar boldly goes to the heart of West Africa and discovers Nigeria to be one of the most diverse and exciting travel destinations. Her journey begins in the country's largest city, Lagos where she visits the local food and textile market and takes in a rehearsal by Femi Kuti at the New Afrika Shrine. Adela travels on to Lokoja on the banks of the Niger for a glimpse into the city's British colonial legacy and learns about the Biafran war for independence, meeting a veteran of the war at the National War Museum in Umuahia. She makes her way to Calabar to join the celebrations at a traditional Efik tribal wedding, before heading deep into the rainforest to see the endangered drill monkeys of Afi Mountain. After a short stop in Abuja, she ventures to Kano in the north to meet the Emir at his palace. Her trip ends with a visit to the magical weeklong desert music festival in Machina.
