Hey Shining Stars,

Last year, thanks to be people over at Jovago (now Jumia Travel) I got to visit Lagos as a tourist and do touristy things. Badagry was one of the places visited and we stayed at the Whispering Palms Resort.

Whispering palms is one of the first resorts to be built in Nigeria. Located in Badagry Lagos, it was built in the 1980’s by a well-travelled Doctor who wanted to create a space for people who couldn’t travel out of the country but still needed to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The resort boasts of a man-made beach, mini zoo, boat rides on the Lagos lagoon and many other activities.

We also got to go into Badagry town and a tour in the compound of a slave trader back in the days.

See the video of the experience here


Hope you get to visit it sometime

Enjoyed this video a lot.. Visited Badagry again sometime last year, was glad to see that the sites were still being maintained (by Nigerian standards). There’s definitely a need for improvement…
