Happy New Year 2017

‘Although you can’t go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new beginning’ – Carl Bard. This should be your mantra for 2017, no looking back, forward ever. 2016 was a great year though, recession and bad news aside, for our brand, we achieved a lot and made a lot of great strides. We have only God and all our amazing tourists, clients and supporters to thank. Personally, for me and also for the blog it was also a good year. I am really thankful for everything. May this new year 2017 bring an abundance of amazing opportunities and beautiful experiences. May we achieve all our goals and may our visions and dreams come to realization. I wish you a happy and prosperous 2017. Cheers!

Sumu Wildlife Park Bauchi

In the spirit of memories and trip recaps, I am still not done with sharing my Explore Bauchi experience which took place earlier this year. It was a 4 day trip to Northern Nigeria and it was one that I will never forget. I wrote about the general experience, day 1 and the people I met here, then I wrote about our visit to Tafawa Balewa’s mausoleum here and our visit to the Emir of Dass and Mbula hills here. After leaving Dass, we went to Sumu wildlife park.
