Nigerian Content Creator Attempts To Drive From London To Lagos


A Nigerian travel content creator, Ms Pelumi Nubi will today begin an attempt to drive from London to Lagos, a journey of more than 7,000km (4,340 miles).

From England, Ms Nubi will cross into France and Spain, before entering Africa through Morocco.

“After that, it’s through the West Sahara desert, Mauritania, Senegal, The Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, Benin, and finally Nigeria, reaching Lagos,” Ms Nubi said of her travel route.

While similar driving challenges have been done on the London-Lagos route before, Ms Nubi said she believed she was the first black woman to attempt the journey.

“But hey, this isn’t about breaking records. It’s about showing the world that ‘impossible’ is just a word,” she said when she first announced the challenge last November.

Last week, Ms Nubi said that the trip had taken one year of planning and saving.

An avid traveller, Ms Nubi has visited 80 countries. She often showcases her travel exploits on her social media accounts.
