- A Nigerian lady on twitter has narrated how she and her friend travelled to West African countries by road
- The experience for them was very exciting as they had to google everything they needed to know about border procedures
- In some cases, they had some cultural shocks and some startling revelations about how immigration service is conducted on the continent
A Nigerian lady on twitter with the handle, @AinaTalks, has documented how she travelled the whole of West Africa by road.
She said the journey started when her friend contacted her and mooted the idea of going on the adventure. She said she got in on the idea immediately and they had to gather knowledge about border procedures through the search engine.
The first problem they faced on the journey was the language difference as they could not speak French, the language by some of the Francophone countries in West Africa.
Their road trip first leg was Nigeria to Contonou, a journey they said cost them 1500 and they had to struggle through bad roads too.
They also had to struggle with bribe-demanding officers, especially at immigration and at checkpoints. She also discovered the best way to get an accommodation, saying it is best booking is done online.
The traveller, however, commended the Ghanaian immigration police for their friendliness and professionalism.
During their stay in Ghana, changing their money to the country’s currency was not so hard and they were also marveled by the fact that so many Nigerians were in the city.
The rest of the journey for the traveller had to be made through night enjoyable trips in luxurious buses. They encountered more bribery situations in places like Mali and Senegal.
During the trip, they also had culture and culinary experiences.
