We usually take a trip around the world based on adrenaline-pumping adventures or unique food experiences that can only be found in a few places on Earth. Today we’re exploring unique, interesting and underrated places you can place at the top of your bucket list after winning millions with Lotto247.
On the Gulf of Guinea sits an African country with rich natural picturesque landmarks and wildlife reserves. Apart from its natural beauty, this African oasis is also known for its natural resources.
Nigeria is the 12th largest oil producer in the world and is pretty well-known for the production of this natural resource.
What to do in Nigeria:
You just have to see Yankari National Park for yourself. In 1956 the area was first established as a game reserve, but later in 1991, it was dubbed as Nigeria’s biggest national park.
The park now covers more than 2,244 square kilometres and is popular for its natural water springs, flora and fauna. The Yankari National Park is also quickly becoming a very popular tourist attraction because of all the unique adventures it has to offer.
The natural water springs are picture-perfect with their sparkling clear blue water that’s just waiting for you to jump in to. Also, because the park is located right in the middle of the West African savanna, you will get to see Africa’s sprawling wildlife in their natural habitat. This gives a new meaning to driving off with millions.
What to eat in Nigeria:
Pounded yam would be our first choice for you to try! This is one of the most popular dishes in the East African country and it’s boiled and pounded into a very smooth mash and served with various soups.
We suggest you try it with Egusi soup. This soup is also a local speciality that is thickened with ground seeds which are indigenous to the area. Besides the seeds, locals also add leaf vegetables, Palm oil, seasoning and meat.
A fun fact about Nigeria:
Nigeria is home to Zuma Rock, a massive rock that stands 725 metres high. It was historically used as a protection fort during intertribal wars and today stands proud as a symbol of the country's rich history.
A special note to all our Nigerian players: have you seen that we’ve added even more local payment methods for you to use? If you haven’t deposited using them yet, we suggest you try them for yourself today!
2. The United Arab Emirates.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is located in Western Asia and it’s commonly referred to as the Emirates and is made up of 7 countries in total.
What to do in the United Arab Emirates:
You have to see the Burj Khalifa for yourself! Up until 2009, this was the tallest building in the world. It might not officially hold the title anymore, but this structure is still pretty impressive at 829.8 metres in the air.
This building sits in the heart of Dubai with a whopping 160 stories and has an observation deck right at the top. If you’re not afraid of heights and you’d like to see Dubai the way only birds would, then this viewpoint is for you!
If you’d like a one-of-a-kind cultural experience, then we suggest you take a trip down to Abu Dhabi to see the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. It is one of the world’s largest mosques and has some of the most impressive architectural work people have ever seen.
The mosque is home to 82 domes, over 1,000 columns, 24-carat-gold gilded chandeliers and the world's largest hand-knotted carpet. If that wasn’t impressive enough, the art around the mosque intentionally intertwines different Islamic architectural schools to create a single masterpiece.
What to eat in the United Arab Emirates:
You just have to try their shawarmas. You might have tried one before, but nothing compares to having one in the UAE. Locals often have it with either chicken or lamb and they wash it all down with a local fruit drink made from blending together strawberry and banana.
Fun fact about the UAE:
It has the 7th largest oil reserves in the world, making it an extremely wealthy country.
