So I decided to go to Agodi Gardens with my cousin. I already saw some pictures on Instagram.
Anyway, gate fee was N500. The security guy at the entrance said I couldn’t take my camera in because it is a professional camera and if I want to have a photoshoot, I’d have to pay N10,000. Slightly ridiculous tbh. I actually wanted to understand why they don’t allow cameras inside seeing as its like a tourist center. Or so I thought anyway. After the unnecessary speech about the reason being ‘That is how we do it here’, I asked him what I’m expected to do now. He suggested I drop my camera with them. I did that. Already slightly depressed that I won’t be able to take pictures like I wanted to. Thank God for my phone.
Decided to go to the zoo and I was not impressed. Nigerians have a problem with maintaining things. The zoo looked so dirty and untidy. Barely six animals. The lion looked really hungry and tired. It didn’t even move. The monkeys were playful, tortoise was really old and struggling to move, and a mute parrot. It was a hot mess tbh.
They had a section not far from the pool where they sold suya, chicken, turkey, palm wine and all that good stuff.
After a lot of walking around and sitting. We left.
If you are in Ibadan and want to do some sight seeing, I’d recommend Agodi Gardens. It’s a really nice place to go with friends or your significant other on a not so sunny day!
Hope you had a good weekend! I’m looking forward to the two days holiday this week. Happy Sallah in advance to my Muslim readers!
