March 4, 2019 / Nigeria

With Uber availability in two of the country’s major cities, it’s easy to see why so many riders in Nigeria have taken to using our service to get around town. Whether you’re on the morning commute or a day trip out of the city, find out how you can make the most of your time in Nigeria’s Uber cities.

Seated in the very heart of Nigeria, Abuja is the country’s capital for good reason—and Uber is available there for good reason too. Both workday rushes and weekend trips are made easy with Uber availability in the capital.

From culture and architectural wonder at Abuja National Mosque, to natural delights at Usuma Dam and modern pleasures at the Jabi Lake Mall, there’s a something for everyone in Abuja. Or you can take it all on with a quick day tour around the city.

It’s also just as easy to escape town with us: the Kubwa Forest Reserve and Zuma Hull Nature Reserve are just a short ride north-west of the city centre. If you’re looking for a more international escape, you can travel from your front door direct to Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, for a seamless land-to-air transfer.

Nigeria’s very own sunshine state, Lagos is known by many as a beach paradise. But as an Uber city, it’s easy to find new ways to enjoy Lagos and get to know the place a bit more intimately.

Explore Lagos’s artistic heritage and study its sombre history with a trip around the Nike Art Centre and the Black Heritage Museum. You can find shopping opportunities in spades at the Ikeja City Mall and Lekki Market, or there’s opportunity for some natural relaxation and wildlife watching at the Lekki Conservation Centre and LUFASI Nature Park.

Murtala Muhammed International Airport is also reachable via Uber from all parts of Lagos, from Victoria Island to Ikeja, for domestic and international travel. Of course, if you’d rather just enjoy a day on the beach, you can request a ride to any one of Lagos state’s beaches.

All in all, we’d say Uber in Nigeria has got it covered. So, next time you’re stepping out in Abuja or Lagos, whether you’re on the way to work or dinner, just remember that there’s an easier way to get around town—a ride is only tap away after all.
