Directions to The Town of Badagry
Badagry is a town in Lagos located towards the border on your way to Seme, Benin Republic. Badagry is known to be the historical town where slaves were taken from & where slaves were taken to before transportation over the seas. Badagry today is a thriving, bubbling community segmented into 8 districts. Each headed by a chief. These chiefs in turn have the Akran (King) as their leader. (The Kings palace is pictured above).
You know you have gotten to Badagry when you see a large drum in a roundabout with the stature of man in the act of beating the drum. Taking your left goes towards the Badagry Heritage Museum, Island of no return, perma culture garden and other historic sites; going straight takes you towards the border and right takes you into the Badagry town.
The drum you see at the entrance is called the Sator drum and is only beaten during special occasions and usually by orphans. What you see at the roundabout is a replica, the real deal are two 8 feet tall, twin drums that are decorated and made to look grand when they are brought out to be played in public.
Badagry is a great place to escape to to relax, there is whispering palms resort which has great ammenities & activities. You can also visit the Badagry market, see the Vlekete market where slaves were sold, the Kings palace, the Heritage museum, agia tree and 1st storey building. There is also the Seriki Abass bar-racoon and Mobbie family slave relics to see. All in all, you will have a wonderful time at Badagry.
