Trailblazing Explorer Completes Epic London to Lagos Road Trip, Inspiring a New Generation of Adventurers

28-year-old Nigerian Lady Pelumi Nubi has successfully completed her solo road trip from London to Lagos in a Peugeot 107 after 68 days on the road. Despite encountering a motor accident towards the end of her journey, Pelumi’s mission was to showcase the beauty of West Africa to the world.


Upon her arrival in Lagos, Pelumi was warmly received at the Nigeria-Benin Republic border by the Commissioner of Tourism, Arts, and Culture, Mrs. Toke Awoyinka, and the Special Adviser on Tourism, Arts, and Culture, Idris Aregbe. Reflecting on her journey, Pelumi shared, “I wanted to bridge the gap between two places I hold dear to my heart—Lagos, where I was born, and London, where I grew up. This was an opportunity to explore West Africa overland, a journey that presented its challenges.”


Navigating the trip solo proved to be demanding, but the overwhelming support from her online community, which grew from 10,000 to over 200,000 followers, served as a source of motivation for Pelumi. Grateful for the encouragement, Pelumi expressed her gratitude, stating, “I am thankful for everyone’s support, and I am humbled by the experience.”


Pelumi aims to inspire and empower young women to step out of their comfort zones and embrace daring adventures. She believes her journey will encourage others to explore the African continent and challenge stereotypes. Despite facing obstacles such as a lengthy hold at the Liberian border and entry issues in Sierra Leone, Pelumi remained determined to complete her expedition. Her journey began on January 31, 2024, and concluded on April 7, 2024, marking a significant milestone in her exploration of West Africa.
