Wow! August has almost come to an end. This year has been moving really fast. Can you believe we have only 4 months left till the end of 2016? It was just January 1st the other day; time really flies. I hope you’ve been having a good year so far and you are working out your dreams and visions. This year has been a good one for Social Prefect. The brand has really grown a lot from where it was last year and I have only God to thank.
Social Prefect Tours is at it again. This time we have something bigger and way more interesting planned. Our tour buses are heading to the scenic hills of Idanre in Ondo state. Read about Idanre hills from our visit there last year. You see there comes a time in your life when you need a Vacation. But the truth is, we can’t all afford the luxurious trips to distant shores and exotic islands, so while we wait and save up to get there and also considering the fact that forex is on an all time high, why don’t we start by exploring our own country? There are so many beautiful destinations in Nigeria waiting to be explored.
Hope you’ve all read our Olumo rock 2016 tour post? If pictures tell a thousand stories, then videos tell a million. We have the official video for our Olumo rock tour created by Alleb media and we are glad to share it with you all. Kindly watch, share, comment and tell everyone about it. It’s a great video that makes us relive our experience there. Don’t forget to spread the word about Social Prefect Tours. It’s a movement and everyone needs to here about this great movement. That being said, enjoy the video 🙂
I know I’m a tad-bit late on posting this, but right now let’s just go with the mantra, “better late than never”. Olumo rock tour which took place on July 16, 2016 was amazing. The tour was so great, to the extent that we trended on twitter, we were the top trend at a point. It is one my best tours yet (actually all tours have a special place in my heart). It had lots of amazing people in attendance and the whole journey together was full of laughter, games, jokes, light-hearted conversations, fun networking, warmth and plenty pictures. Everyone left that day so happy and testified to a good time. We thank God everything went well; we went to Abeokuta and got back safely to Lagos without any issues.
After the insightful visit to Tafawa Balewa’s Mausoleum, our next stop on the Explore Bauchi trip was the visit to Dass. Dass is a local government area in Bauchi, it is also an emirate with 14 districts. It is a town occupied by rocks, ridges, boulders, stones and hills. Literally everywhere in Dass is surrounded by rocks and hills. It was such a beautiful site. For someone who has spent all her life in the South, this was such a welcome view. It was really fascinating. The truth is, there are lots of interesting, beautiful and fascinating places and sites in the North. But they are not publicized at all, or given any attention and this is quite sad.
Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa’s Tomb and Mausoleum Bauchi
In continuation to my last post on the Explore Bauchi trip, I mentioned that on the second day we kicked off with a buffet breakfast at the Bauchi government house. The breakfast was really good with lots of yummy Hausa dishes. After breakfast, we set out on our way to Tafawa Balewa’s Mausoleum. On our way there, we were given our own packs of Kilishi, which was delicious by the way. I miss all the pampering and good treatment from that trip. Another great thing I loved about the Bauchi trip was how much I learnt. Before the trip, I did not really pay much attention to the fact that the great Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa was from Bauchi state (the local government where he is from, is even named after him) and I had also not studied his great life. However, after this trip, I was properly educated and very grateful for the privilege. Continue reading →
Good morning and welcome to a new week. I trust your weekend was splendid. Mine was fun and restful. I attended a wedding on Saturday, which was really fun, with lots of old friends in attendance and I rested on Sunday after church. I have been up to a lot of things lately and I’ve experienced a zillion and one adventures which I have not shared here yet.
Growing up, I loved summer camps, summer lessons and basically any event that brought kids or teens my age together outside the traditional classroom setting. I always learnt a while lot and made new friends. And now to be grown and given the opportunity to facilitate one is such a great thing. I’m ready to impact some knowledge and share with teenagers. Get your kids to register for #TheBOOTCAMP2016
Located in Suleja, Niger state, just an hour 30 minutes drive from Abuja, Gurara falls is nature’s gift to the people of Niger state. It was the venue of our first ever tour in Abuja. Yes!!! Social Prefect tours was in Abuja and it was a huge success. The tour took place last month on the 4th of June. Our venue, Gurara waterfalls is very picturesque, intimidating, beautiful and the currents are out of this world. Before I tell you more about the waterfall, let me give you the details of how our tour went.
Everyone from the President to a regular lady on the streets of Nigeria takes selfies these days. It has become part of our modern culture that we all engage in without any real thought, because, well, everyone else is.
