Getting to the Resort. From the Lekki toll gate, the resort is a straight drive pass the Lekki Peninsula, Chevron roundabout, Victoria Garden City, Ajah roundabout, Lakowe town into Bodije town. There is a sign to your left that says OMU RESORT. A 'U' turn is available shortly after the spot where this sign is & here you can turn, then take a right into the road leading to the resort.
A flag flapping in the wind will announce you of your destination. You have arrived. A good practise is to let the resort know you are coming so they make preparations for your arrival & if it arises, make special preparations to receive you.
When you enter the reception, you will see two 'empty' cases to your right. While you might think they are empty, please look again & see the first of the many wonders you will witness at the resort. A royal python lives in one & a python in the other. You will see written editorials on the left hanging on the wall. You will meet with the receptionist who will confirm your booking with smiles while you take a seat (or offload the car for a full day of activities).
From here, your resort guide will meet you, get introduced & the fun starts.
Some of the things to do at Omu Resort
Zoo: The Zoo at Omu Resort is exciting & wonderful. The first point of call will be the geese shed. They will be actually calling you instead. Bring some treat for them but first ask the zoo guide if it's okay to feed them. The zoo guide will take you through each animal shed. You will see the camel(it isn't an adult yet), porcupine (the spines look scary), the monkeys are fun to play with, the hyena looks bored but is actually enjoying the attention from you, the jackals are playful when they decide to be, the ostrichs look like they couldn't be bothered with all your stares (till they flap their wings & trot like they are about to take off), great birds they are.
The lion is usually the last point of call for most people. There in it's cage, it roams round & round. If you are lucky, or maybe if you requested, you will get to see the lion feed on a goat. It's usually all over in a matter of minutes but the small chase that happens is fascinating to watch. Add the lion flicking it's neck to the 'crack' sound of the goat you will loudly hear & you will begin to feel a new respect for this King of the Jungle. (We named the lion Simba).
Go Kart: The Go Kart race way is a good place to challenge each other to the best driver. The go kart instructor will help you enter, show you your pedals & start the engine for you. The Go Kart experience is easy to enter if you calm down & just follow the simple instructions given to you by the instructor. Hold your left leg on the brake to keep the Go Kart grounded, release it gently to start moving, add some acceleration by lightly pressing on the acceleration pedal, off you go!!!
Quad Biking: The Quad biking field is big! Really it is! Ride over sand dunes & pump up your adrenaline on these bikes in a race, catch game or rescue the damsel in distress. A quad bike is a four wheeled vehicle use don sand dunes & at beaches.
