Christmas is in the air and it is time to relax and enjoy the holiday with family and friends. Thanks to a crop of budding travel/tourism entrepreneurs, you can enjoy the holiday on a budget while having fun at it. I have put together 5 exciting things you can do this holiday. Here we go:
1. CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY TOUR TO ACCRA, GHANA VIA BENIN & TOGO
This amazing road trip that takes you through 3 countries in 7 days is put together by two of the thriving travel companies in Abuja: Sehembz Travels & Topaz Travels. It promises to be a fun trip filled with lots of sight-seeing, tourist destinations and a fabulous Christmas party at the famous Labadi Beach. You can check out @sehembztravels on Facebook/Instagram for more details.
2. CALABAR CARNIVAL
The history of the Calabar Carnival which is also known as “Africa’s Biggest Street Party” dates back to 2004 when Governor Donald Duke had a vision of making his state the hub for tourism and hospitality in Nigeria and in Africa and also make Calabar one of the top destination spots for tourists during the Yuletide. So far, the carnival has lived up to expectations with the city basically on full carnival mode from the 1st day in December with “Climate Change” as this year’s theme. The main highlight of the carnival is the Carnival week (25th-31st December) which has a lot of entertainment imbedded in it. Keep a close eye on @socialprefecttours as they intend to put together a fantastic package to ensure your experience of the carnival is one that will remember for the rest of your life.
