The next step after getting married is to go on a honeymoon. I know that weddings in Nigeria can suck the life out of you. Some weddings take up to a week with so much planning. You know the drill. However, after spending so much on the wedding, you don’t want to clean out your bank account for the honeymoon. So, while exploring Nigeria, here are my 7 best places for a honeymoon in Nigeria on a budget. These places are budget-friendly yet you get to enjoy time out with your partner. Also, you can read my post on how to plan the best frugal wedding to cut costs. Save cost as you enter the stage of your life with your beloved.
One of my best places for a honeymoon in Nigeria is Bogobiri house. Bogobiri House is an artsy place where you go for a honeymoon on a budget. It is located at Ikoyi Lagos.
There are so many fun activities you can engage in. You can spend time at the art gallery taking in the lovely painting and sculptures. I love the paintings at Bogobiri’s house. The whole artsy vibe is breathtaking.
As a couple, you can lodge at Bogobiri house for as low as 30,000naira per night. You can also enjoy local and intercontinental dishes at the Bamboo bar and restaurant. The name is coined from bamboo roofing inside the restaurant. I enjoyed a meal of Banga and Semo on my visit.
The local dishes are from the Orisirishi kitchen. However, you can choose to go to the Orisirishi kitchen to treat yourself to some sumptuous local dishes.
You can stay for as long as you want at Bogobiri house. Also, you can enjoy their weekday activities like the music night and poems. After your stay, shop for fashionable items from the Gift shop at the restaurant and close the Kitchen. I love the Ankara bags collection at Bogobiri house. They are quite affordable too.
