How are you doing? If you follow me on my social media platforms, then you probably know I traveled to Mauritius on an educational trip. All thanks to Fly SAA.
One of my hobbies is traveling and I will never pass on an offer to go visit a place as beautiful as Mauritius. Prior to this visit, I have seen different posts on twitter and Instagram about how beautiful and peaceful it can be. However, being the type of person that I am, and knowing how great things and human beings can seem in photos, especially with everybody’s phone having awesome camera quality, I reluctantly listed Mauritius as one of those countries I would love to visit but really, NO PRESSURE.
When this opportunity presented itself, I was ready and willing. And I must say Mauritius is even more beautiful than you see in photos. I will share my experience on this journey with you subsequently but on this post, let’s talk about Nigerian Tour operators.
Traveling is fun…Traveling is relaxing…Traveling is freedom…Traveling is passion…Traveling is enlightening…Traveling is educational…
Travel can mean different things to different people. Also, it can birth multiple feelings and serve as a way to refuel your tank in order to carry on stronger. As much as traveling is recommended, it has its disadvantages as much as its advantages and if you are a novice, its even more advisable to seek the services of a tour operator. Using Tour operators gives better chance at safety, get you discounted rates that would otherwise be impossible for online individual booking, advice you better on key decision making (Like which hotel or what airline to use) and convenience. Tour operators usually have better knowledge of the country you need to visit and the activities you want to partake in.
In no particular order, here are five Nigerian Tour Operators you can Trust;

The woman who is in love with history and culture and a passionate advocate for mental health – Princess Adetutu Adedeji, is the boss at Zeriah Travels. She gladly tells me the meaning of Zeriah inflight to Mauritius – Seed. She started this business because of her natural flare for travel. “I love to travel”, she says with a wide smile. Adetutu used to work with FCMB and was prompted to go into the travel business by her boss, after seeing the passion she has for it. “Don’t just travel, experience it. Meet the locals”, she says, as she explains that Eco-Tourism doesn’t have to be expensive. She also maintains that luxury doesn’t have to be 5star. Luxury is the service and the things you get.
