About the area

Near the university:

The nearby Kufena hills provide a nice day trip for hiking enthusiasts. There are also a number of historical sites near the university – the ancient city walls of Zaria are around 15km away from the campus. Those interested in traditional crafts might also enjoy a visit to the Zaria Dye Pits.

Travel in Nigeria:

Nigeria boasts a diversity of wildlife and a large number of national parks, including the famous Yankari National Park, which would make a nice weekend trip away from the university. Here you can see a large population of elephants, as well as  lions, buffaloes, waterbucks, bushbucks, hippos and plenty of baboons.

The varied landscape also provides some interesting mountain climbing opportunities. As well as having more gentle climbs, for the adventurous, you can attempt to climb mount Gangirwal  – the “Mountain of Death”, Nigeria’s highest mountain at 2200 meters high.

For relaxation, there is a beautiful coastline at the south of the country, offering both beaches and islands to explore.
