2-Day Yoruba Historical and Cultural Tour (South West Nigeria)

This private tour gives an insight into the life, religion, history and culture of the Yorubas. The tour which starts from Lagos will have us travel to Abeokuta in Ogun State for about two hours on the first day and on the second day to Osogbo and Ile-Ife both in Osun State for about 3 hours.

Learn about the Yoruba faith, a religion that is among the world's ten largest. Traditional Yoruba religious beliefs recognize a wide variety of deities, with Olodumare known as the creator and other spirits serving as intermediates to help with the concerns of humans. The deities include "Ọya" (wind goddess), "Ifa" (divination or fate), "Ẹlẹda" (destiny), "Ọsanyin" (medicines and healing),"Ọsun" (goddess of fertility, protector of children and mothers), and Ṣango (God of thunder),among others.

Yoruba religion and mythology is a major influence in West Africa chiefly in Nigeria, and has given origin to several New World religions such as Santería in Cuba, Puerto Rico and Candomblé in Brazil.
