Our Hangout in Omu Resort




I teamed up with a group of tourists, adventure lovers (most of who are nairalanders) and their families for a hangout at Omu Resort.

A brief description; Omu Resort is set in a rainforest environment, it allows guests experience and be inspired by the wonders of nature. Nestled in a peaceful neighbourhood, occupying a land area of approximately 22 hectares and boarded to the North by the imposing clear waters of Omu Creek. It is a multihub fun spot for family and friends as it combines adventure, nature and history all together in one. With the wide range of activities on offer, there is never a dull moment. 

Enough of description, now to our hangout experience; the team set out for Omu Resort from Surulere at 9:45am. The journey was an exciting one; everyone got to introduce themselves and talk about what they do. Our tourguide
also gave us a brief talk on tourism, conservation and relaxation. After this, we played some games in the bus. The journey was smooth and gridlock free. 54 of us embarked on this hangout.

We got to Omu Resort within an hour ten minutes. After registering and paying the required fees, we started off with a tour of the zoo. We saw the lion, hyenas, snakes, horses, peacocks, porcupines, donkeys, tortoise, civet, monkeys, wide variety of birds and fresh lush vegetation. Honestly we saw a lot of animals but I cannot remember them all. After the tour, we visited the Antique museum where we saw a lot of old artifacts, old currencies, old music and other cool old stuffs. We also had a quick stop at the wax museum.

By this time we were already getting hungry, so we all decided to go to our tent and have our sumptuous meal. After this was games games games. Some started by swimming at the pool, others played at the Amusement Park, the rest partook in Go-Karting, Archery, Minigolf, Horse Riding, Quad Biking, Kayaking and DDT Paintball. We also played a lot of board games too.

Before we left, it was announced that the lion would be fed a life goat by 4pm, so we all decided to go see the king of the jungle tear apart a life goatJ. It was a gory sight.

At around 5pm after so much fun, it was time to depart the fun filled resort; but before we left we decided to take a final group picture on the sand pyramid of tyres.

It was indded an awesome hangout. This is just a brief summary of the full experience.

PROS
-          There are a lot of fun attractions at the resort
-          The staff are very friendly and helpful
-          The facility is also very clean and properly maintained
-          It’s also a very secure resort

CONS
-          The resort is a bit far, especially if you are coming from the mainland
-          The road leading directly to the resort is also bad
-          Omu resort is also a bit expensive and does not give discounts no matter the number of people you go with, unless you book on their website and you only get a very minute discount.

Enough of talking let our pictures do the remaining talking.
