What happens when a camera phone photography enthusiast has a free day, a smartphone, and has heard of a new botanical garden located in the countryside away from the hustle and bustle of Lagos? He drives down and take pictures. Was Mister Mobility’s drive to Holis Botanical Garden in Epe, Lagos, worth it? His keyboard and the Redmi Note 7 tell the story.
The sun is not quite up yet when I set out from home. This was a 64 kilometre drive and I love to hit the road early when the day is till cool and I can leave the car windows down. I have done 86 km drives before. Heck, I have done 900 km drives before. 64 kilometres would be a piece of cake.
Armed with the Redmi Note 7, I headed out to countryside Lagos and eventually arrived at Holis Botanical Garden located in Ideno in Epe.
Holis Botanical Garden in Pictures – all shot on Redmi Note 7
The serene garden is designed to be a nature retreat, with some carved artwork, a large garden with seats, a covered bar, as well as chalets for lodging. It is the kind of place you go spend some time at to write a book or to generally escape the hustle and bustle of a city like Lagos.
Enjoy the pic story. All photos were shot on Redmi Note 7 and they have not been retouched in any way. The only editing that has been done is resizing to keep load size on this webpage down. Click on each image to see a bigger size.
Holis Botanical Garden, Epe is about one a half hour drive from Ikeja through Ikorodu. The roads were, surprisingly, very good and you will enjoy the countryside air during the trip. There is another access road through Ibeju-Lekki, if you are not a Mainland guy or babe.
