Abuja Travel Guide

Getting Around Abuja

Although much less chaotic and stressful than Lagos, it is still not recommended that travellers drive themselves around Abuja. The pre-planned nature of the city''s design and its relative compactness make certain areas explorable by foot, but this should not be done in isolation or after dark. Private taxis in Abuja are generally safe; motorcycle taxis (okada) less so. Tourists to Abuja can look into hiring a private driver to ferry them around the city: this should cost a maximum of NGN 7,000 for the day. Note that since Abuja is a relatively new city, many taxi drivers will not be intimately familiar with all parts of the city - it is a good idea to take a map along with you, and to point out your desired destination to your driver.
