The perfect 12hrs checklist, if you were a billionaire in Nigeria
Let’s say it’s a public holiday, Worker’s Day to be precise. You live in Nigeria as a billionaire, can’t seem to figure out what to spend your money on and teleportation is a reality far removed from the luxury of a sci-fi novel…how would you spend the most exciting 12hrs of your life?
Jovago.com, Africa’s largest hotel booking portal plays a bit with fantasy on this one. Enjoy!
07:00 AM – 07:30 AM | Start the morning with a few laps and a swim at the Sheraton Gym
Nothing gets you in an amazing mood in the morning like a swim in a pool so clear that its filled with the zest of an ocean.
07:30 AM – 08:00 AM | Ride the cable car at Obudu
The natural ambiance, sunlight seeping through the leaves, and the clear mix of warm and cold at over 25,000ft above sea level makes for a perfect adventure right in the jungle.
08:00 AM – 08:30 AM | Intercontinental a la carte breakfast at Abraka Turf
The smell of fresh morning air at the prestigious Abraka Turf can set a soul on fire. The scenery here is breath-taking, the dark green forest whistles in the distance, the horses stand in wait while newly baked bread and accoutrements grace the table. It’s every tourists dream to have the spring of Abraka feed their soul.
08:30 AM – 09:00 AM | Stop by Terrakulture for a delicious cup of coffee while reading a magazine
The terrace at Terrakulture is such a wonderful spot to unwind and ponder this great country’s economic wonders. The coffee is great, but we’re here for the glorious company that files in through the door from dusk till dawn.
09:00 AM – 1:00 PM | Did someone say ‘beach time’? Jet Ski on the Ikoyi Lagoon is it!
Moving into Lagos, there are very few people who know of the hidden attractions this vibrant city offers. With long sandy beaches that stretch along the coast for miles on end, Lagos has the cutest blend of blue and green ocean for jet skier.
01:00 PM – 01:45PM | Lunch with friends on a floating boat in Calabar
Starving yet? A quick visit to Africa’s tourist paradise for a special mix of Ekpangkwokwo, Editan and African crab salad made by professional chefs atop a floating boat is perfect for some girl time.
02:20 PM – 04:00 PM | Afternoon nap with nature at Yankari Game Reserve
Heading over to the picturesque countryside of Yankari for a nap with birds chirping in the background is an adventurers dream.
04:00 PM – 04:45 PM | Shop for real leather bags in Sokoto
Woke up with a strong urge to shop? Hey, you are a billionaire, you can buy enough bags to fill a room if you want to and where better to do this than Sokoto, the home of authentic leather.
04:45 PM – 05:30 PM | Go golfing at IBB golf course, Abuja
As a billionaire, you can afford to live anywhere, so a potting game at the nation’s Federal Capital Territory is not big deal for you. Not to mention you have some equally wealthy friends with whom you’d like to strike a few business deals with.
05:30 PM – 07:00 PM | Romantic dinner on a private yacht off the coast of Ibeno
We couldn’t have chosen a more idyllic setting for romantic dinner than the beachside restaurant at the Ibeno private beach. The view is beautiful and the food, tasty. The air smells like salted palm-fronds and memories of another life.
07:00 AM – Dawn | Night cap under the stars at the Kajuru castle
Most people are still taken away by the view of the world-famous Kajuru castle from afar but as a billionaire, you get to keep the entire lot for yourself, the whole weekend!
Soak up the evening mist and read a book in a hammock swaying over the pool. Traipze around bare feet, with jazz music playing in the background…after all who says life shouldn’t be enjoyed. And when all energy is spent, listen to the sound of your beating heart and fall madly in love again with Nigeria, a land with undiscovered treasures
