Company History keyboard_arrow_down

Wakanow 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.

Established in 2008, Wakanow was founded as Nigeria’s first OTA (Online Travel Agent) to bridge the gap and eliminate the barriers and inefficiencies facing the travel industry. Two years after its launch, the site fully took off around the period of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, affording it the much needed early kick-off momentum.

In the eight years of its existence, Wakanow has grown to become one of Africa’s leading travel booking portals, with physical presence in Nigeria, UAE, Ghana, UK and US. With 31 travel centers in Nigeria, Wakanow offers a wide range of products and services that include Vacation packages, Hotel/flight booking, Specialized Travel packages, Corporate Travel Management, Visa procurements, a Wakanow international pre-prepaid card, a loyalty solution and a Wakanow international Travel SIM card.

With convenience payment system, physical footprint, customer service and technology anchored at the center of its processes, Wakanow has expanded the frontiers of travel to become a force to be reckoned with in the Nigerian business landscape. In 2013, Wakanow was recognized as one of the fastest growing online companies in Nigeria by the Tony Elumelu Foundation in alliance with the AllWorld Networks based in the UK.

With the acquisition of Oya.com, a local transport ticketing online agency and the commencement of specialized services to corporate and high-end clients, Wakanow has once again raised the bar in tapping into the wealth of opportunities that exist in Nigeria’s travel business landscape and boosting the profile of the industry in general.

With its rapidly expanding portfolios and successful penetration into new markets, Wakanow plans to open another 20 offices around the world over the next two years.
