The Epe mangroves is one of the best-kept secrets of Lagos. Located in Epe LGA of Lagos, you can spot the mangroves in the Epe creek that starts somewhere at Ajah and extends to the main town of Epe. Mangroves are shrubs or trees that grow in areas with low-oxygen soil, where slow-moving/brackish waters allow fine sediments to accumulate.

When is the best time to visit?

You can visit the town any day and any time, but it is best to call the contact number ahead so you don't have any issues.
