Situated on the Gulf of Guinea, Nigeria is a beautifully natural country famous for its wildlife reserves and safaris. There's a real mix of experiences here, from the rare beauty of Nigeria's national parks, such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park, to Nigeria's modern, highly-populated cities that are growing rapidly, such as Abuja and Lagos. In 2014, Nigeria emerged as Africa's largest economy, with growth in areas such as agriculture and telecommunications services. The Nigerian government has also been working to improve the infrastructure and power supply problems in the country, and in making living and working conditions better for citizens and expatriates alike. The mining and oil sectors had always been the largest employers of expats in Nigeria, and the two major cities, the capital Abuja and commercial center Lagos, are popular places for expats who are working and living in Nigeria. Reports of high crime can put expats off from making the move, but in reality many experience friendly locals, an exciting culture, and a unique way of life in Nigeria.
