Nigerian Woman Solo-Driving From London To Lagos Arrives Africa


A Nigerian woman and travel content creator, Pelumi Nubi has arrived in Africa in her ambitious solo drive from London to Lagos.

Nubi said her plan is to traverse through 17 countries through a distance of more than 7,000km (4,340 miles), to reach Lagos in just two months.

The 29-year-old avid traveller has been sharing updates from her journey, starting from Paris, France, after departing from England early this month.

On Sunday, she posted a video on Instagram of her arriving in Morocco.

“I won’t sugarcoat it – crossing into Morocco from Spain had me on edge initially,” she wrote.

Her route includes navigating 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 believes she is the first black woman to attempt this journey.

She emphasises that her goal is not about breaking records but rather showing the world that “impossible” is just a word, as she initially announced the challenge in November.
