Nike's Tours

Tourists who come to Nigeria are not interested in five-star hotels. They have enough of that in their countries. They are interested in our culture, our way of life, our huts, our cultural dresses, how we live in our communities, our traditional ways of settling conflicts. They want to hear our moonlight stories. They want to see the African-ness in us. They want to eat with their fingers as we do. They want to watch our cultural dances, and listen to our talking drums. They want us to explain what the drums are saying. These are the things we are trying to achieve at the centre. We want to preserve our culture and our way of life."
If you’re feeling creative you can take an art course with Nike or go on one of her week-long retreats outside of Lagos in Osun state (Osogbo), Kogi state (Ogidi) and Abuja, all of which you can visit with 'Nike Tours'. The tours offer overnight accommodation at her guesthouses, and partake in creating traditional African crafts such as adire, batik, indigo, beadwork, painting, or carving.

We have a 16 room guest house (Nike Hill-Top Guest House) at Ogidi-Ijumu village. Ogidi is situated on the southwestern tip of the old Northern Region. It is a three and one-half hour drive from Abuja.  It has deep historical ties with the northern and western part of Nigeria.  It is a beautiful and peacceful villageplace, where you can spend the day observing traditional artists and artisans at work, go for long walks on the igneous rock mountains, or watch the local cultural troop perform a theatrical dance show.
