Although much less chaotic and stressful than Lagos, it is still not recommended that travellers drive themselves around Abuja. Tourists to Abuja who will be doing a lot of travelling around the city should look into hiring a private driver along with a rental car. The pre-planned nature of the city's design and its relative compactness make certain areas easy to explore on foot, but this should not be done alone or after dark. Private taxis in Abuja are generally safe; motorcycle taxis (okada) tend to be less so. Visitors may find that taxi drivers in Abuja are not always familiar with all parts of the city; it is a good idea to carry a good map and to point out your desired destination to your driver.
