Itinerary
Trip 2001
December 11-16 Nigeria grew quickly during the seventies oil boom. We hope to avoid the chaotic traffic in Lagos, but we may have to go there for visas (shown in dotted line). Otherwise, we head straight for Kano, the capital of the Hausa trading empire and home of the great Northern Emirs. The indigo dye pits here are over 1000 years old. We will also see groundnuts piled into pyramid shapes, each one weighing over 700 tons.
December 17-19 We visit Yankari National Park visiting caves. Visited springs and got mobbed by locals wanting pictures.
