"Take the trip to Africa.....


Come and spend eight days in Lagos Nigeria, where you will visit some of the worlds most historic places, within the African Culture. Nigeria is Home to one of the main slave ports, that was used to ship our ancestors, to where, we now know as home. When I first took this trip, I had no idea what to expect. During my trip, I had the opportunity to meet some really beautiful people, who are just as enthusiastic about their brothers and sisters coming home, as I am.  Lagos has a culture like no other. The entertainment, Fashion, and hustle spirit, will quickly catch your attention and make you wanna come back. I have put together a package of events that will make your trip back to Africa, a memorable one. Hotel Accommodations, meals, all transportation within Lagos and events offered, will be included in the package. Airfare, visa's, and passports can be purchased as a part of the package, but on an individual basis only (some people may already have a visa, passport). Please discuss this before you make your down payment. 



Day 1    

  Many of us may know about Jet lag, While others have only heard of it. Some of us may have connecting flights In other countries, and some may have direct flights, so we will all arrive at different times. I will already be there, waiting to pick you up from the airport and take you to the Hotel. Because we will be traveling during our trip, we may stay at two or three hotels while in Lagos. One of The hotels that we will be staying, has a full kitchen with staff, that specializes in Fine home cooked, Authentic, Nigerian food. They have a full service Bar and Lounge area with a line of pharmacies and markets on the strip. The other Hotel is  apartment styled,  with a full kitchen, so that  we can prepare our own meals. This day we will socialize, meet and greet with our tour guides, and rest. Lagos is about 5-8 hours ahead depending on where you live in America, so we will need to catch up on sleep and get unpacked. 


Day 2     

Freedom Park 

 Includes Memorial and liesure park area in the middle of Lagos, on Lagos Island. The park was designed to preserve the history and cultural heritage of Nigeria. They have live bands, guest speakers, and other entertainment. Freedom park is also an old Brittish prison, used to house African and other prisoners in Nigeria, under the leadership of the Brittish. I enjoyed Freedom park with so much history and entertainment, it's a must see. We will drive around the City and try different Restaurants.

Nigeria


Day 3     

Mall and Movie/clubbing

Lagos has a huge Party and entertainment scene. The music is similar to reggae,The clubs are awesome with great vibes. I had so much fun at the different clubs and parties that I attended. It's a Must to visit the malls and Clubs whenever visiting a new city, state, country and Continent ;)


Day 4  

Badagry slave museam

This is a full day trip and must be done early, it takes about 1 1/2 hours to get there and  1 1/2 hours to get back. 

Badagry is one of the Major Slave ports and routes in west Africa. The laid back, cool citizens of badagry have much of,  what we americanized afrikans would call "southern hospitality" compared to the fast city folks of lagos. The Museam has the first converted english "Holy" Bible, the first two story building, weapons, Cells used to hold slaves,  a bunch of artifacts and we'll take a ride on the boat to the "point of No return," which is the journey walked by our ancestors to the Atlantic ocean to be enslaved and sent to the Islands and America. The tour Guide there was so down to earth and knowledgable, he was also kind enough to send us home with medicinal plants used to cure dry skin. 


Day 5

 Beach day, markets and mingle 

This day the ladies and Men,  can be fitted for outfits, headwraps, dresses, pick out fabrics, get their hair braided and or shop for beads and things. The Market was very homely with small local business owners. Reminded me of the Flea markets here in America.
