The folks at @TravelNextdoor have announced the next excursion to the historic town of Badagr; it comes up on Saturday 9th August 2014. To book a seat on the tour bus, or to get more details on the excursion, email travelnextdoor@yahoo.com or call 0807 0999 670.

@TravelNextDoor have been taking tourists–Nigerians and foreighners–on regular excursions to the town famous for its history of slave trading since 2010 and they have built quite a reputation for that over the last few years. We thought to share some highlights of what it means to be part of that 12 hours (8am-8pm) spent outdoors, enjoying the very best of #nature, #culture and #history that Nigeria has to offer.
