The journey from London to Lagos by car is expected to take Pelumi through 15 countries before she would arrive at her destination.

She wrote on TikTok:

"Crossing the border into Mauritania today, and wow, what an adventure! Land border crossings are no joke."

She went on to advise those crossing land borders on what to do to avoid delays. She said:

"Arrive early allows you to beat the crowds and prevent late-night drives! Know the rules and research beforehand where to be and how many posts you need to visit. Make friends. A friendly chat with an officer saved me more than three hours! When another officer told me to join the scanning queue he told him to let me go because we had spoken before. Play dumb. Sometimes, acting a bit clueless helps. You're knowledgeable, but let them feel helpful. Check your documents- Have everything in order and double-check; in fact triple check your stamps before walking away."

Comment on the development, Kunle Adeyanju, a Nigerian rider who had undertaken the same journey with a bike, said he had an unpleasant experience in Mauritania when he arrived the country during his London to Lagos ride.

He told Legit.ng:

"Mauritania can be a challenging place like any other country on earth. It is true I had an unpleasant experience during my transit through Mauritania, and I think after my report on my experience, the government of Mauritania has taken some concerted efforts towards improving the experiences of tourist in the country."

Kunle, also known as Lion Heart, advised Pelumi on staying and exiting Mauritania.

He said:

"You might meet a couple of Nigerians working in the fishing business in Nouadhibou port; you will see how dry fish and stock fish is processed locally. Also, you might even catch a glimpse of the longest freight and commuter train in the world, spanning a length of about 4.5km.

"Another advise for Pelumi is to be mindful of her payment for services in Mauritania; tourists are easily prey upon here. My most important advice, however, is the on the transit options out of Mauritania."

He said Pelumi should carefully choose the exite route she would use out of the country when heading to West Africa.

He advised her to have fun:

"However, the most important thing of all, in all of these experiences, is to have fun, enjoy it and learn a lot."
