Yoruba Insults Language is a phenomenon that is used in communication. The environment we live in is largely verbal, therefore, language serves as an expressive function used in everyday…
Last year, we held our first Orisun trip to Lagos Nigeria for 11 days in December. It was a wonderful experience. It was filled with fun experiences, delicious food and amazing company and for many travelers, a once in a lifetime experience. The Orisun Travel Team is excited to announce that we will be hosting 2 more like this. The first of the trip will be December 2023 and the second will be in April 2024. Whether you’re completely new to Nigeria and would like to travel with like minded individuals with a curated experience or you’re a regular traveler to Nigeria but would like to experience a different side to Nigeria, the Orisun experience is for you!

If you have any questions about the trip or would like to receive more information about the trip, please fill in the contact form below or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How much spending money do I need to bring?
We recommend bringing £200 – £300 / $300 for spending money. Even though a lot of things are included in the package, social activities and meals not covered or ad-hoc activities. We will also be visiting some markets / malls where you may wish to purchase things for yourself and others. The exchange rate from Naira to dollar is about $1 – N700, £1 – N900 so $100 dollars would be N70,000 and £100 would be about N90,000. These do fluctuate so these are just a rough estimate to what they may be when we travel.
How much would flights cost? Can you sort this out for me?
We estimate that flights may cost anywhere from £400-£1000 / $500-$1500. It will depend on how early you book, who you book with, if you book a direct flight or a flight with stopovers. Once you pay your deposit, we will send you information on what flights to book and how to get the best deals. We could help you find and book flights if you get in touch with us using the contact form below and let us know where you will be coming from and the relevant details needed.
How will Covid affect our plans?
Covid will not interfere with the trip as there are no requirements to enter Nigeria. All can enter.
Can I get a refund if I change my mind?
You are free to change your mind and cancel for a refund anytime up until 6 months before the day of your trip. Your money will be refunded minus the processing fees incurred when accepting your payment and the initial deposit paid. After a certain date, we would have begun paying the vendors in Nigeria and you will not be able to receive a full refund. Your package will be transferable though and you can find someone else to replace you.
Can I go and visit family and friends whilst on the trip or travel domestically?
We do not recommend travelling outside of Lagos whilst on the trip with us and you will have to sign a liability release form if you choose to travel out of state without us. We will have ‘free days’ where you may visit people within Lagos but we ask that you give us full details of the person you will be meeting and they pick you up from the hotel.
Will there be an opportunity to explore nightlife?
Yes, we will have the opportunity to explore the nightlife.
Can you handle our visas / how do we sort out the visas?
If you are a Nigerian citizen or if you are the child of a Nigerian citizen, we recommend you get a Nigerian passport as this will make it easier (we will send information regarding how to do this). If not, we will provide information on how to go about obtaining a visa before arriving in Nigeria. Please ensure you have a passport valid for the entirety of 2022 whether Nigerian or not. We have the ability to sort out visa on arrival for you with our partners in Nigeria but this is estimated to cost around $300 / £400 so might be more cost effective to work out the visa prior to arrival. We will give you all the help/assistance you may need so please contact us if there are any issues.
What will the itinerary look like?
We will send a detailed itinerary once you have booked your place on the trip and closer to the time of travel which will detail our daily activities and everything you need to know. Currently the trip will involve a lot of sightseeing, cultural and historical trips, seeing how locals live, going out to dinners, nightlife (clubs/lounges for those who are interested), galleries, museums, market trips, beach days, game nights, movie nights, exploration of Nigerian cuisines and so much more. You can see a list of most of the activities above.
Can I leave the trip early or choose to stay on in Nigeria after the 10th day?
Yes. You book your flight tickets so you can pick the dates you wish to travel but we do not take responsibility for any days you choose to stay in Nigeria outside of the trip days and you will have to organise your transport from the airport to the hotel if you will be coming later or earlier than the designated days though we will be happy to assist you in doing so.
If there is anything else you are concerned about or would like to know, please use the contact form below or send us an email at email@example.com. More information such as hotel, detailed itinerary will be provided after booking/payment for security reasons.
