In July 2017, I started a small travel blog called IK Hotel and Tours out of my passion to help travelers to Nigeria with reliable information about certain tourist destinations in Nigeria.
I had been privileged enough to have either worked or lived near some of the most popular tourist destinations in Nigeria. So I have always had first hand information about these destinations that I felt could be of help to intending visitors.
I had also experienced how most visitors come unguided, ill-informed and consequently how they become frustrated. This did not only sell Nigeria as a whole in a bad way, but also left a horrible impression in the mind of the visitor.
I wanted to change this and enhance the visitor experience when they come to these tourist destinations. I wanted to help them visit easily, safely and economically!
The only way I could do this was to put high quality content out there on the internet. This was how the blog IK Hotel and Tours was birthed. I never thought of a business or making money. The only thing I wanted to do then was to offer especially first time visitors to Nigeria with useful, accurate and reliable information helpful for their trip. I never thought of a business, or even starting a company.
Fast-forward to today, and we are now Destinali, a full fledged company incorporated with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) as Destinali Trip Planning Limited.
So, in the course of trying to genuinely help people, we found a business opportunity. This is why our whole approach involves putting the visitor/traveler first. We make it a breeze for you to visit Nigeria!
First, we make sure every visitor gets accurate insider information about their intended destination in a timely manner and know the multiple options available to them.
Need visa support? Within a very short spate of time, we’ve been able to establish ourselves as the go-to source for Nigerian visa support services.
We make it easy and cheap for the visitor to access visa support documents from us. There is no gainsaying the fact that our ultimate goal is to help you visit Nigeria easily and economically.
Have a challenge processing a visa at the embassy? No worries, we are here to help you process a Nigerian visa on arrival (VoA) in the shortest possible time – usually between 1 – 2 days!
We also partner with a flight search engine to help you search and compare flight tickets from multiple airlines at once so you can only pay the cheapest fares.
Additionally, we transfer our visitors from the airport to their destinations and back to the airport at departure. Our excellent and knowledgeable tour guides are always on ground too to take you around providing extra cover and security.
We have expanded our team to make sure we give you excellent customer service round the clock. We are very responsive irrespective of different time zones.
We don’t keep our customers waiting. Our goal has always been to be of help to you.
We put in all the work to make sure all you need do is relax, visit Nigeria…and have fun!
So from running a scrappy blog offering useful and helpful info, I was able to discover a huge business opportunity. But what is more rewarding is the joy, happiness and fulfillment that comes with living your passion.
And today, the blog IK Hotel and Tours is an incorporated company – Destinali!
