Nigeria, for one, is filled with nature reserves and conservation centers that give you a taste of the country’s wildlife. And since Nigeria is one of the countries situated at the edge of Africa, it’s also filled with different beaches to combat the dry and tropical weather.

The coworking trend has been growing in Nigeria for years now, along with the high probability of seeing coliving spaces soon.

Some of them see Nigeria, specifically the largest city of Lagos, as a viable destination to move into.
