Welcome to Travu

A lot is happening in travel and we’re here for all of it

Thank you for stopping over at travu – I hope you enjoy reading some of the stories and reviews we have published so far.

The publication launched as an e-magazine in July 2020, at the height of the pandemic. At the time, we were looking forward to Nigeria’s approaching 60th independence anniversary (1st October). With international travel out of the question, we wanted to curate a list of fun, fascinating and historical places for Nigerians to consider visiting once the covid-19 enforced lockdown was eased or lifted.

Working with about 40 of Nigeria’s renowned travellers and travel photographers, we delivered a magazine worth its weight in content. We were impressed with the reception and feedback from readers, far and near.

You can flip through that same edition on the site.

Since the start of 2021, I have had a busy time travelling in several interesting towns and cities in Nigeria: Bonny Island, Ota, Abeokuta, Badagry, Uyo, Ikot Ekpene, Ikot Abasi, Opobo Kingdom, Ibadan, Oyo and Igbeti, to mention just some.

As happen with many of my travels, I came back with loads of stories, all of which I hope to write and publish here in the coming weeks and months. But I am not the only one travelling; many of my colleagues in the industry have been on the road and in the air too, traversing the length and breathe of Nigeria likewise, visiting new and familiar places: Olumirin waterfalls, Idere Hills, Mambilla Plateau, Obudu Hills, Osun Grove and more. We plan to publish stories from some of those trips too.

With many youthful travelers and adventurers getting on the road and exploring diverse destinations nationwide, Nigeria’s domestic tourism has never been more alive and inspiring. We hope to be the ears, eyes and voice of the local tourism scene, publishing relevant and useful information as we deem suitable for our audience. We hope you’ll keep checking in for those updates.

Travu will report all aspects of travel and tourism activity in Nigeria, including developments in the travel trade and associated businesses — hospitalityaviationtourstravel agencies. We will feature stories on the best destinations locally, local food and beverages, cultureart and more. The industry is growing — it is long overdue to have its own dedicated media outlet.

Beyond that, however, we also plan to publish a series of travel books and guidebooks to help our readers with useful insights as they consider taking their own journeys around Nigeria.

In the meantime, be sure to sign up to get our free eBook – a guide to bird watching in Nigeria.

Warm regards,
