Zuma Rock

Located north of Abuja on the road to Kaduna, Zuma Rock is a must-see tourist attraction in Nigeria. One of Africa's Seven Natural Wonders, this giant monolith - standing 2,400 feet (725m) tall, and with a circumference of 1.9 miles (3.2km) - is nothing less than a national symbol, being featured on the 100 Naira bill. Imposing and austere, Zuma Rock is an unbelievable sight, an improbably huge chunk of rock that - locals insist - bears the image of a human face on its surface, as evidence of its mysterious powers. Unfortunately, there aren't that many tourist amenities set up around Zuma Rock as of yet - these are currently being developed, and will include an interpretive centre and a luxury resort.

Information & Facts

Language

English is the official language in Nigeria and is widely used, though many other languages are also spoken.

Money

Nigerian currency is the Naira (NGN), which is divided into 100 kobo. Approved exchange facilities include the major hotels and the airport, but official rates are very high. It is illegal to change money on the street. Credit card fraud is a problem and visitors are advised against the use of credit cards throughout the country. Credit card facilities are also limited. Facilities for changing travellers cheques are also very limited. Prior to travel, visitors should ensure they have a variety of currency options available to them (Sterling, US dollars or Euros) in cash. Travellers should be aware of the prevalence of commercial fraud in, and emanating from, Nigeria.
