By Dipo Olowookere The zoo section of Omu Resort in Lagos has been boosted with the arrival of two Zebras, making the facility become one of the few zoos in Africa to have the animal in their collection. The black and white-striped Zebras have now increased the numbers of animals in the zoo section of the resort, giving fun-seekers the opportunity to see more animals. Business Post reports that Omu Resort, located at Bogije, Ibeju Lekki, Lagos State, is well-known for wildlife conservation and captive breeding. It boasts of several wild animals like the lion, hyena, monkey, crocodile, ostrich, amongst others. The General Manager of Omu Resort, Ms Moji Ibhaze, while commenting on the latest development, described it as a \u201cbig achievement,\u201d noting that \u201cOmu Resort has always been first.\u201d She stated that the management of the facility was \u201chappy to have the Zebras as an addition to the other animals we have in our zoo.\u201d \u201cWe are trying to promote conservation and captive breeding. We are thus extremely proud of the landmark recorded\u201d she added. Furthermore, Ms Ibhaze said that Omu Resort was proud to be the pioneer of a sea world, adding that a visit to Omu Resort\u2019s sea world would avail visitors a collection of fishes that are peculiar to Nigerian waters. \u201cIf you visit our sea world, you will see how we keep our fishes in wall aquariums and they are all indigenous to Nigerian waters, none is imported,\u201d she said. Ms Ibhaze reinstated Omu Resort\u2019s commitment to wildlife, adding that the resort intends to bring in more animals especially endangered ones. According to her, the resort is working with Professor (Mrs) Morenikeji of the University of Ibadan towards achieving the dream. \u201cOur Eland has also arrived even as we expect two Giraffes in the next 8 weeks. Space is also currently under development to receive our elephants. Meanwhile, Happiness Michael, a staff of the resort has stated that the arrival of the Zebras will be a business ace. According to her, \u201cOrdinarily, when people come into the zoo section of the resort, they settle for the feeding of the lions as their premium experience. \u201cAfter seeing the lions, they ask us what else do you have? I tell them that we have several other animals and they are indeed happy to see them. \u201cNow, I can tell them that we have taken delivery of two Zebras. That will definitely put some smile on their faces.\u201d Omu Resort, which opens its doors from 9am to 6pm on Mondays to Saturdays and from 12noon to 6pm on Sundays, is set in a rainforest environment, allowing guests to experience and be inspired by the wonders of nature.
