Kingdom of Oyotunji African Village
Oyotunji was a unique experience. The 1.5 hour tour ($10 or $15 - cash only) covered the founder's spiritual journey, the history of the village, and various temples and buildings on the property. People live here, and there was even a transition ceremony (AKA funeral) the day I visited.
If you're traveling I-95 and have time to spare, a visit at Oyotunji is something you won't soon forget![Kristi, 04/11/2017]
It was interesting, but if you do a tour, be prepared for a very long tour. We were there for over an hour.[Toni, 06/12/2016]
Warning: when you drive in, you are driving through people's yards and onto a long, wooded, one-way, somewhat secluded road before reaching the village. Totally worth it, though.[Bubbly and Boozy, 09/08/2011]
It's not free! A little shady, we didn't go through because it was $10 a person. We did see it from the car and it looked cool.[Jennifer, 08/01/2011]
