Nigeria’s capital…

Home to major multinationals, global blue-chip companies and official embassies, the relatively new capital of Abuja enjoys a slower pace of life and is infinitely less congested and polluted than many other leading cities. With wide roads, high office towers and large apartment blocks, the city’s most recognisable feature is Aso Rock, a dominant outcrop which looms behind the attractive government buildings on the outskirts of the city.

In addition to natural attractions, Abuja also offers a wealth of historical and popular sights, including the National Mosque and Church, Parade Square and the Wuse Market. Flying into the city will see a short 40-minute car journey from Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.
