Osun Sacred Grove

The Oshun sacred grove is a place of worship of 'Orisha', a spirit or deity that reflects one of the manifestations of God in the Ifá and Yoruba religions. Oshun, also spelt 'Osun', is a Nigerian Yoruba deity of the river and fresh water, luxury and pleasure, sexuality and fertility, and beauty and love. She is connected to destiny and divination.  She is one of the most popular and venerated Orishas. She is the patron saint of the Osun River in Nigeria, which bears her name. Oshun is honoured at the Osun-Osogbo Festival a two-week-long annual festival, usually in August, at the Osun-Osogbo Sacred Grove on the banks of the Osun River, Nigeria. The Osun Grove is a UNESCO World Heritage site!

At every Osun festival, tourists come from all over the world, especially from West Africa and Latin America. To this end, Holiday Nigeria organizes full inclusive tours complete with transportation, transfers, hotels, feeding, guided tours, security and souvenirs.
