Nigeria’s largest city by area, Ibadan was formerly capital of the entire South West Region excluding Lagos and is today the capital of Oyo State. Its rich history makes it a remarkable destination, and it is ideally located at the edge of the Yoruba heartland, providing the perfect base to explore all the major Yoruba cities.
With its faded colonial elegance, varied topography and balmy tropical climate, this is a city of real charm and personality. Don’t forget to take in some of its celebrated landmarks, including Mapo Hill, Irefin Palace, the University’s Zoological and Botanical Gardens, the Bower Memorial Tower and Old Oyo National Park.
