An Overview of The Longest Canopy Walk in Africa - Photos and Video

Talk of the longest canopy walkway in Africa, then the Lekki Conservation Centre (LCC) comes to mind.

The place was built by the former Lagos State Governor administration, Mr. Babatunde Fashola and handed over to the Nigerian Conservation Foundation. Also commissioned was the Family Park with facilities.

The park was built by the Lagos State Government through its Ministry of Tourism and Inter-Governmental Relations, the 401 Meters Canopy Walk, and the Family Park which boasts of Koi and Tilapa Ponds, jungle gym, outdoor games etc are located within the nature reserve of the Lekki Conservation Centre in Lagos.

Canopy walks are also known as canopy walk-ways, treetop walk, treetop walk-ways or suspension bridges in some cases. They provide pedestrian access to forest canopy and give you a bird’s eye view of the forest. According to Wikipedia “Early walkways consisted of bridges between trees in the canopy of a forest; mostly linked up with platforms inside or around the trees.

They were originally intended as access to the upper regions of ancient forests for scientists conducting canopy research. However, today they serve as ecotourism attractions for visitors in forest reserves and conservation centers.

Not more than 6 people are allowed at a time on each level of the canopy walk. There are 7 levels and 6 resting bridges. There is also an age restriction, from 14-70 years. The canopy walk is best done in groups
