TRIPPING TO USUMA DAM

TRIPPING TO USUMA DAM - Usuma Dam Water Treatment Plant, Bwari, Abuja

In my Previous Post, I mentioned that I had quite an eventful weekend (twas really just an exciting Saturday).
I visited the Usuma Dam with my siblings, cousins and friends. The dam is only a 10 mins drive from my house (I know, why I haven't taken the 'trip' long before now?!). 

Usuma Dam is a water treatment dam, and also has facilities that could pass for tourist attraction.


TRIPPING TO USUMA DAM - Usuma Dam Water Treatment Plant, Bwari, Abuja

Usuma Dam Water Treatment Plant , located in Nigeria's capital city Abuja, is owned by Federal Capital Territory Water Board.

It is an ideal place for family trips and picnics with friends. It provides such serenity and a heightened sense of privacy from the hustle and bustle in Abuja.

We parked our car at the gate of the dam which was the beginning of the pebbled stone walkway. It was about a 20 minute walk to the foot of the hills.
We climbed the hills in less than half of that time and the view at the top was absolutely breath-taking!
Climbing to the top of the hill and looking over the map of water between hills makes me appreciate creation and the creator. 
I took tons of pictures!
We came with food and drinks and found a tree with shade where we sat, laughed and ate.
We had a great time!
I wanted to enter a canoe ride to cross over to one of the mini islands but fear .... lol
Definitely doing that the next time I go there!

This place awakened a hunger in me to travel and see more places. So I've started making plans and saving money (very important, lol).
You'd definitely be seeing more 'Trippings' on this blog, (fingers crossed).

Hope you enjoyed this post.
