Those who want to visit Nigeria or move inside the country should know that there are available various means of transportation. They can find out more at the local tourist information points. Still, the road infrastructure in Nigeria may have a slightly bad reputation for not being in its best shape, but fortunately, the National Economic Empowerment Development Strategy in Nigeria has started repairing the main roads in the country and improve its means of transportation.
What is more, if you want to travel around the country you can do it by train. There are many people who travel by train daily, and it is an easy way to get wherever you want. The Nigerian railway system has 3,557 km of track and two main rail lines. One of them connects Lagos to Neguru, places in the North of Yobe and Bight of Benin, whereas the other one links Port Harcourt in the Niger Delts with Maiduguri.
In addition, if you have rented a car you can use the highways in Nigeria. The country has the longest road network in the Western part of Africa and the second largest in South of Sahara, consisting in about 108,000 km. Still, so far it has been poorly maintained, thus you may encounter several difficulties while travelling. The reparations on the road have only recently begun.
Furthermore, there are available various inland waterways one can travel in Nigeria. These are usually on the Niger River and measure 8,600 km. However, these are mostly used for commerce and merchandise transportation, but there are few travelling facilities for people too. Finally, now that you know how to make it through the country you should know that the most convenient way to arrive to Nigeria is by plane. The main airports are MurtalaMuhammas Airport in Lagos and Mallam Aminu International Airport situated in the North of state Kano.
