My Experience at the La Campagne Tropicana
I have been to the La Campagne Tropicana so many times. It was a lovely sunny Saturday and I decided to do La Campagne with some friends. We took off at Lekki Phase One and it was about an hour 30 minutes drive to La Campagne Tropicana. It is a straight drive on the Lekki Expressway until we made a right turn to the Lekki Free trade zone area. We passed through the Multi-billion dollar Dangote Refinery. We went all the way to the Newly constructed Lekki Deep Sea Port. Finally down to a coastal town called Ikegun. Ikegun is a quiet town located at Ibeju Lekki, an area of Lagos State just after the Dangote refinery.
On entering the La Campagne Tropicana, we booked our tickets at the Resorts reception which is located outside the gates of the resort. On entering we were blown away by the African Inspired artworks and the African-themed settings. There are facilities for everything like games, fun, adventure etc
Beautiful Resort in the Heart of Lagos
Everything about La Campagne is African-inspired, from the ambience to the cottages, and even the cabanas. You will be welcomed in the traditional Yoruba way of greeting, while at it, the ever-ready waitresses are on stand-by to welcome you with a cup of palm wine. It won’t come in fancy cups like the beers from the local bar. It is served in a local calabash or cups. There are lots of African Inspired prints on display for sale. Feel free to go home with a souvenir.
You will almost mistake it for the palace of a Traditional Nigerian King. They will brief you about the resort, the dos and don’ts, the rates etc. Then you are ushered into the main entrance.
The resort also features some non-wildlife animals like monkey and goose who move around freely within the resort. They are harmless creatures looking for something to eat.
La Campagne Tropicana Has its own Currency
One of the most interesting part for me at the resort is that it has its own currency known as Pere. We got about ten Thousand Pere. One pere is equivalent to 1 naira. So to trade within the resort you will have to use Pere. We then headed straight to the gate. There were security men at the post who confirmed our tickets and checked us into the Resort shuttles that was already waiting to take us on one of the best moments of our lives.
The view was amazing, this got to be one of the most amazing views I have seen in my entire life. A mixture of palm fronds and coconut trees is systematically arranged in sync gives the beach a lovely view. Then gradually as we move closer we began to hear the sounds of the turbulent waves. This has got to be the cleanest beach in Nigeria.
They also claimed to have the longest ool in the world. Note There is no P in ool, the ool is a snake-like pool that stretches down the plain. They also boast of the longest pool on a beach.
