Nigerian Listed Among 30 Most Influential Women Travellers In The World (PHOTO)


Congratulations are in order for Noo Saro Wiwa, the daughter of Ogoni matyre and environmentalist Ken Saro-Wiwa, who was named among the top 30 most influential travelers in the world in 2018.

The 42-year-old Nigerian writer, Noo Saro Wiwa, was listed among other top names such as American actress Angelina Jolie, late US journalist Marie Colvin, Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah from Jordan among others.

The survey was done and published by the international magazine Conde Nast Traveler.

Noo Saro Wiwa grew up in Surrey, England which she describes as a bountiful paradise, far removed from the heat and chaos of Nigeria.’

Her book Looking for Transwonderland: Travels in Nigeria, is a brave first foray into travel literature; Noo’s father Ken Saro-Wiwa, who campaigned against government corruption, was executed by the military dictatorship of his country in 1995. Noo had spent childhood summers in Port-Harcourt on the Niger Delta but after this, she didn’t return for 10 years (except for his funeral and burial), wanting nothing more to do with the country.
