TRAVEL GUIDE TO AGODI GARDENS, IBADAN

AGODI GARDENS IBADAN

One of the most popular and most recommended places when visiting Ibadan is the Agodi Gardens. I’ve been staying in Ibadan for a while and the only place people have told me to visit is this same place. I finally decided to go and see what the hype is all about. Turns out I really don’t blame them because there is really no other interesting and exciting place to visit in Ibadan city (kindly recommend if you know)!

MAJOR THINGS I’LL BE DOING TO TRAVEL MORE OFTEN

THINGS-I’LL-BE-DOING-TO-TRAVEL

The only way I can travel more is if I put travel on the top of my priority list; which I have done. Prioritizing travel to me means sacrifice and hard work. I’ll have to gift myself fewer bags, lesser shoes, not many clothes and hardly any hair. It will most certainly beat out a few happy hours every week. Prioritizing travel means that I will cook more often at home rather than eating out. It also means migrating funds that I’m spending on other things and spending it on travel. Generally, when it comes to my finances, I should

Usuma dam: The Hidden Gem in Abuja Revealed!!!

Usuma Dam is a MAN-MADE dam that is surrounded by an outstretched lake and tall mountains. This is the second most beautiful place I’ve been to in Nigeria; Obudu being the first.  The lake is beautiful and the mountains give it a breath-taking view.

Abuja is dry land and has no natural source of water. So dams were created to solve this problem and Usuma Dam is one of them. Having started the project of the dam in 1980 way before FCT became the capital; it is one of the major sources of water supply to the Federal Capital.

Highlights of my trip to Obudu

highlight of my trip to obudu

Obudu is popular for being one of the best resort destinations in Nigeria and after my visit, I couldn’t agree more! The place is a total package for adventure. Visiting Obudu Cattle Ranch has always been one of my dreams and finally, I can proudly cross that off my list!

Even though I’ve been dying to go, my visit was delayed till now because most travel deals I see to Obudu are always very expensive in my opinion and way higher than my budget. As soon as I was approached by Visit Nigeria Now to visit Obudu for way less, I

Obudu is a Local Government Area located in the north of Cross River State, Nigeria. It is like every other community in Nigeria but the spectacular place in Obudu is the Obudu Cattle Ranch.

HOW TO PACK FOR AN ADVENTURE TO OBUDU

what to pack to obudu

When I visited Obudu, I packed wrong. I remember I was told to hold a thick cardigan but I took a sweatshirt. I thought I was going on every other vacation but Obudu cattle ranch is different. The mountain resort has a rather irregular weather.  With daytime temperatures in the 80s and nighttime temperatures in the 40s or 50s, it’s wise to consider the weather when choosing an activity. From hiking through Obudu’s mountains, to outside camping and movie nights, different times call for different ‘looks’.

There are different ranges of activities to engage in so knowing what to pack in
