Driving in Nigeria
There are certain requirements you would need to meet in order to drive in Nigeria. International drivers licenses are acceptable in Nigeria only for a duration of three (3) months. This should be okay if you are visiting the country and would just need to take a tour of the country's scenery in a rented car. Most car hire services provide a chauffeur anyway.
Driving in Africa is generally erratic, but in Nigeria you will need to get used to the 'me first' syndrome, that is, everyone wants to go first at any opportunity even if it means to drive roughly. It's therefore best to understand this before you ply on our roads.
