|Kemi and Penzaar|
Yay, it's time for our monthly KFB Tour reflection!
For the Newbies, the #KemiFilaniTours is more like a travel journal, where KFB visits tourist /historic/fun centers (locally/internationally) and gives you the gist. At first, I planned to make it a biweekly column, but I eventually resorted to have it monthly instead.
After the trip to Olumo rock (HERE), the KFB tour director, Penzaar of Penzaarvilleafrica, asked us to do Ibadan next and I agreed especially because I have never been to a Zoo. So, we went last week in company of the amazing Erad (a graphics designer).
|Bye Lagos, Ibadan here we come!|
|This is not our real face oh, lol|
We left Lagos at around 9am and got to Ibadan at past 12 but the movement within the city (to the University of Ibadan and the Agodi Gardens) was tiring, thanks to the taffic...there is really no difference between the heavy traffic in Ibadan and that of Lagos.
|Even during the trip, had to update the blog with new stories|
Department of Zoology in UI is where the Ibadan zoo is located. On getting there we had to purchase a pass ticket of N500 per person and an extra 1000 because of our camera.
#kemifilanitours #kemifilaniblog whoop, we can't keep calm! This month, we @kemifilani @penzaarville and @eradunltd toured #ibadan ..We went to the #zoo in the university of ibadan and also had a stop at the #agodigardens....the post (the full gist and plenty plenty plenty photos) will be up on the blog tomorrow morning...like we said earlier, we can't wait. Watch this space :-) #travelblogger #lions #tourguide
The entrance was beautiful, the animal cages looked clean and the animals look healthy. There were also gazebos where visitors can sit for shade against the sun and have their social events.
|One of the many selfies taken :)|
|All work and no play...|
|A little goofing around doesn't hurt, does it?|
|More goofing around|
|Posed with the Zebra...its name is Ajoke|
|Posed here with the Horses|
|The amazing Erad and Kemi|
|Yup, we love selfies|
|One of the three Lions in the Zoo..the two refused to come out of the inner cage|
After spending about thirty five minutes or thereabout in the Zoo, we went to the Agodi Gardens.
Agodi Gardens contains an indigenous forest, zoo, a lake and tree plantations.
The garden is situated near the Oyo State Secretariat Complex.
"You would love the place, it is beautiful and good for photoshoots." Penzaar said, and he turned out to be right.
The Gate fee was about Five hundred or one thousand naira, i really can't remember but we weren't allowed to go in with our camera.
"We charge N10,000 for official camera use" the attendant told us...and that's how we jejeli decided to use our phones as we didn't even plan to spend up to twenty minutes there :)
We didn't check the Zoo at the Garden because we had already seen many of the Animals at the Ibadan Zoo.
|We were already tired here, lol|
Despite being tired, Penzaar made us go on the boat cruise (still within the Garden), we paid N500 for that. The lake was shamefully a mess though.
After we left the Garden, we went to one of the popular Bukas in Ibadan to eat Amala!!!!
And we drove back to Lagos, home sweet home!
In conclusion, Ibadan is a beautiful city, yup you read that right!
Yes, it has its local areas and ancient homes but a lot of development has indeed happened in the Oyo state capital.
