Five Places I Want To Visit In Nigeria This Year

I am an adventurer at heart. I’m addicted to travel blogs, vlogs and books. I am always googling travel destinations, tips and hacks, flight bookings and hotel reservations. I enjoy reading about exciting places, and I have been doing so since I got my first international passport in 2013.

Know that girl who feels like she has been everywhere? Yea, that’s me!

Except, I’ve only been to 7 states (including my home state) in Nigeria. I have never traveled out of the country. Never been on a plane, never even been to an airport.

Don’t ask me why I was researching international hotel bookings and flight reservations when I don’t have a single stamp on my passport and no money in the bank. I don’t know myself.

The world is incredibly big and beautiful; I want to explore as much of it as possible while I am still young and able. Besides, I’ve been an armchair traveler for too long. It’s time to see the world with my own eyes.

It’s time to travel, explore the world, meet new people, learn new languages, try new things, sate my wanderlust.

If you have some tips/advice that can help me or know somewhere I can go on a budget, please hit me in the comment section or feel free to contact me. Thank you!

Here are my five must-visit places in Nigeria in 2020 (coronavirus or no coronavirus?).

Olumo Rock, Ogun State

Located in Abeokuta, Ogun state, I hear a visit to Olumo Rock is as good as visiting Mount Everest, Mount Kilimanjaro and all the other famous mountains in the world…and I can’t wait to be there!

I was in Abeokuta for a wedding a few years back, and I remember I badly wanted to go to Olumo Rock but couldn’t. Now that I live in Lagos and Olumo Rock is less than two hours drive from here, you bet I will be there.

Five places I want to visit in #Nigeria this year...where do you think I should visit first? Click To Tweet


Obudu Mountain Resort, Cross River

Everyone has been talking about Obudu Mountain Resort in Cross Rivers State. I hear it has an attractive landscape and calming ambiance. Surrounded by nature and wildlife, the resort is said to offer scenic high altitudes with beautiful views and crisp, refreshing mountain air and a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

I am already planning a weekend getaway and can’t wait to storm the place?

Kajuru Castle, Kaduna

I first read about Kajuru Castle about two years ago. It’s a beautiful castle that sits on a rock hidden in Kajuru village, Kaduna state. It covers about 400 square metres and has a total of five bedrooms. I hear you can stay for weeks, days or hours depending on your budget.

I have always wanted to go to the north, and I’m glad I finally have a reason to. Besides, I hear Kaduna has lots of other exciting places to visit aside from Kajuru Castle.

Who else is thinking of escaping from home as soon as the COVID-19 ends? I am going on a getaway to one of these beautiful places... Click To Tweet

Aso Rock, Abuja

There are lots of exciting places to visit in Abuja, and Aso Rock is just one of them. Situated within the outskirts of Abuja, Aso Rock is a large outcrop. I hear it’s a good tourist site as it is one of the major landmarks in Abuja.

Olumirin Waterfalls, Osun State

There’s a waterfall called Olumirin Waterfalls in Osun state that has seven steps and on top of it sits a small village. The water is said to have medicinal properties and people get healed when they drink it.

I am not interested in the healing waters, I just want to experience nature in all its glory.

According to Brazilian Novelist, Paulo Coelho, “Travel is not about money, it’s about courage…” Courage is all I have at this point, hopefully, it takes me everywhere I want to go.

Which of these places have you been to? Which of them will you like to visit next? Please share with me in the comment section?

Thanks for reading?❤️
