By focusing exclusively on Nigeria and the West Africa region, we’ve developed an impressive knowledge of the region’s best offerings. We know the most intimate hotels, each country’s culinary heritage, the perfect natural spots, and leading scholars on the region’s history and culture. We know much more.

A note from our founder…

Nugwa Journeys was founded on the ethos of privacy, flexibility and deep immersion. After many years of working in the global luxury tourism industry and studies on the region’s economic history while at the New York University, I founded Nugwa Journeys with the aim of providing a unique experience for guests interested in our region.

Nugwa Journeys draws on our team members’ first-hand experience as citizens of various West African countries, our company’s strong relationship with various service providers and a dedication to consistently keeping abreast of happenings in the region.

We differentiate ourselves by eschewing a focus on mass-tourism. On the contrary, we understand and appreciate the importance of privacy, a greater level of flexibility and the desire for deep, immersive experiences.

We hope to help you achieve the perfect travel experience whether alone or as part of a small and interesting group. We look forward to welcoming you to West Africa!

Kind regards,

Victor Igono
