National Children’s Park and Zoo Abuja

“The National Children’s Park and Zoo in Abuja is new, with modern spacious enclosures for the animals and plenty of playgrounds and activities for children. Visitors can see African animals such as cheetah, giraffe, ostrich, zebra and lion (now extinct in Nigeria’s national parks), and there are also domestic animals like camels, donkeys and chickens.”

The Hilton pool, gym and Fulani Bar

“With its traditional thatched roofing, mats and statues, this Abuja bar’s design reflects the culture of Nigeria’s Fulani people. Order barbecue à la carte specialties for your lunch or dinner. Unwind with a snack as you take in views of the Transcorp Hilton Abuja hotel’s beautifully landscaped gardens.”

The Hash House Harriers Run/walk

“Hashing is a state of mind – a friendship of kindred spirits joined together for the sole purpose of reliving their fraternity days, releasing the tensions of everyday life, and generally, acting a fool amongst others who will not judge you or measure you by anything more than your sense of humour.” (by Stray Dog on http://www.gthhh.com). Every other Saturday, a group of 70 to 90 avid runners and leisurely walkers alike convene to explore the countryside around Abuja. The walk, accessible to all – from elders to kids – is around 4 to 6 km while the run is around double that distance with a drink stop along the way. Earlier in the day, a group of ‘Hares’ have set the trails in some nice spots near Abuja with great scenery. So, the Hashers’ objective is to find the true course and to be ‘On On’. After the run/walk, Hashers gather in a circle to welcome newcomers, to send off leavers and to honour each other for any number of reasons by giving them ‘down downs’ – this is chugging a beer, traditionally, soft drinks for those choosing. While the run/walk is completely family-friendly, humour in the circle can get slightly saucy (mostly a lot of double entendre … though from time to time people have been known to drink out of their shoes.) A good sense of humour is a must! After the run, for those willing, there is a “chop” – dinner at a local establishment.”

Grand Square Supermarket

“It is the best place to enjoy eatables and is renowned for its bread outside Paris. You can cherish the ice cream quite favorite among people of Abuja.  Though the rates are high but the taste of the meats and cheese is best.  The supermarket is known for its great service and selected food it serves.”
