On our vlog this week, Fola, Mofe and I talk about travelling within Africa and why it’s sometimes overlooked by (Nigerian) people. We think African cities are worth exploring but we’d love to hear your thoughts.

Do you travel within Africa? If yes, what are your favorite cities and if no, why don’t you? Join the conversation on our YouTube channel and don’t forget to show us some love by subscribing and leaving a comment 🙂

PS: while we are at it, here are some of my favorite cities;

Cape Town: I’ve been here just once but I certainly see myself returning to this beautiful city. Cape Town has something for everyone, it’s definitely a place you want to visit at least once. I wrote all about my trip here and also included a travel cost breakdown for the trip for planning purposes.

Cotonou: I enjoyed all my trips to Cotonou and definitely plan to visit again. One great thing about Cotonou is its proximity to Lagos, making it a great destination for a weekend away and you don’t have to break the bank to have a good time. This trip was made on a shoestring, proving that travel (within Africa) doesn’t always have to be expensive.

Lome: I also visited Lome on a shoestring. It’s a much smaller (and laid back) city than all other cities I’ve been to but certainly worth stopping by for a day or two. Most people just pass through Togo and go on to Ghana. But if you give this little country a chance, it might charm you.
