My mom says I have waka waka legs LOL(waka waka is a Nigerian slang for one who doesn’t stay at a place and likes adventure and/or travel) so I’d be showing you all the places my waka waka legs has been to in the city of Port Harcourt!

Today’s adventure is about Brooklyn Tourist Centre in Port Harcourt.
It is located along East-West Highway,Rumuosi,Port Harcourt. BTC is just along the road and easily accessible as it is directly beside Aim Plaza(the building that houses CoolWazobiaInfo stations).
I am fascinated about everything Brooklyn contains since I first visited there in 2017 and I knew I was going to return again to relive the experience. There is a tour guide to show you around but first, you have to pay the 500 Naira for your tickets.
The ticket lets you see the mini zoo and museum.
In the zoo,you can see animals like a chimpanzee,a Chadian tortoise,a hyena,a parrot,hawks,Bonny river Crocodile,doves,ducks,crowned crane,Nigerian monkey,Cameroonian Baboon,Nigerian Forest Iguana(Monitor lizard) and rabbits.
I went with a friend and had to let him see the animals first before I would walk up to them,I was so scared I was going to see a snake(fun fact:I’m super scared of snakes) LOL. There is also a catfish pond for point and kill pepper soup delicacy.
No one is allowed to take photos in the museum and that’s why I don’t have any photo uploaded here.
There is also a garden,tourist restaurant,bar and hotel accommodation.
PERFECT FOR: School excursions,hangouts,adventure,getaways or retreats. This place is perfect for anyone who is looking to visit somewhere unique.
WILL I REVISIT? I absolutely will for the sake of the museum though! I looove history!
