Wakanow.com is Nigeria’s first and leading online travel company that provides customers with everything they need to research, plan and purchase a trip locally and globally.
Wakanow.com offers travelers the cheapest available fares for flights, hotel reservations, airport pickups, visa assistance, vacation packages and many other travel services from a broad selection of partners. Established in 2008, Wakanow was founded as Nigeria’s first online travel company to bridge the gap and inefficiencies in Nigeria’s online travel space.
Though it launched in 2008, the site fully took off around the period of the last World Cup in South Africa, affording it much needed early kick-off momentum. It has since grown to become the 5th Fastest Growing Company in Nigeria. This was awarded to them at the Nigeria50 Awards organized by All World Network in partnership with the Tony Elumelu foundation.
