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.

  1. I haven’t left the shores of Nigeria since I was born. Choi! I really enjoyed watching this video (I only wish the background music wasn’t that loud) .

    You ladies are gorgeous!

    • Thanks Amaka! Sorry about the background music X_X. We’re working on getting mics improving our editing skills to make our videos better. Thank you so much for watching. And you can plan towards visiting places within until you’re ready to travel across our borders.

  2. I actually haven’t had the opportunity to travel much within Africa. I have to say though that I really want to visit Kenya and South Africa….. maybe add Ghana to that list too! By the way, your outfits are just too gorgeous…loving all the colours!

  3. I wish there was a way, i would just detach a part of me that will be following you around while i am still doing other things. I envy you and all your numerous travel adventures.


  4. Africa has some amazing places and it’s a shame that these aren’t highlighted enough. Being from London, I must say I have only ever visited cities in Ghana (my country of origin) as far as Africa is concerned. But I would like to expand my reach to other beautiful African cities.


    • Luckily, there are many options to choose from whenever you’re ready 🙂
      PS: I am exploring Accra next! – Well, some parts of it, for a few days only but I am super excited!
