I had classes on that same Saturday I planned to visit and also a weekend getaway at Lacampgne Tropicana and I had to choose which was more important to go.
I decided to kill 2 birds with a stone by going first for my classes and after that I headed to LACAMPAGNE. No one prepared me for the journey I was going to face. It was farrrrrr.
Whenever I asked the driver if we were almost approaching the resort, he’ll laugh and say ‘Madam na now your journey just dey begin’ I just kept on asking myself who sent me message.
I had seen pictures of Lacampagne and I had always wanted to tick it off my list. I finally got the opportunity.
Located at Ibeju-Lekki. It’s a lively beach resort which has chalets, outdoor sports, water sports etc.
When I arrived, the only thing I could do was thank God for nature, God is truly Amazing.
They had series of chalets, series of outdoor games to play and water sports. They also claim to have the longest ool in the world🌚 ‘ool because, that’s how it was written.
They also had ‘Pere’ a particular type of currency used instead of Naira so you had to change your money to theirs before purchasing anything (This is something most resorts now imbibe)
The Entrance fee costs 5000 naira which allows you into the pool, outdoor sports and many more activities except the water sports and chalets.
And if you pay 6000 naira, you can do all these listed above and also bring in your food which I feel is a better option because their foods are sold expensive.
The chalets are between 60,000 and above. Some are even up to 400,000 naira per night.
Their chalets are Yoruba named and you can rent beds by the beach or mats if you want to sleep over. Everything is actually African- Infused at the resort.
They have a great space and pictures taken there always turn out great.
For the night, I and my sister stayed at the OSO 2. It was made up of a king size bed, the room had enough space for 20 people to be all at once without inconveniencing anyone. They still need to do some renovations and then things can be a little more okay.
I was happy I finally experienced lacampagne and ticked it mentally off my list.
I could do a return if my friends are willing.
When going, pack a whole lot of water and edibles and thank me later.
