A recent visit to the British Museum where I saw the Benin Bronzes collection (which, rightly or wrongly, have not been returned to their rightful owners), got me thinking about Nigerian art. I lived in Cotonou, Benin, a few years ago, which isn’t far from the Nigerian border and megacity Lagos.
Nigeria’s cultural influence was definitely felt throughout this area. Nigeria is largely bypassed by visitors more interested in nature tourism, but I think Africa’s giant must be worth a look for its Yoruba, Hausa and Fulani cultures, among many others. Let’s undertake a cultural tour of Nigeria.
MTT will accompany any first group to Nigeria to learn and learn and fine-tune any itineraries for future fully independent MTTZ travelers.
