Fifth Chukker With The Girls
Founded in 2001, Fifth Chukker in Kaduna State is a 3,000 hectare Polo & Lifestyle Resort ‘representing the new in the old world of Nigerian Polo’.
It is synonymous with a luxurious lifestyle and Michelle recently went there. You can tell from her interview that she had fun there despite not doing a lot and this says quite a bit about Fifth Chukker. We hope you enjoy the post and catch a bit of her happy vibe from the trip.
Michelle is a lawyer who works in the insurance industry and LOVES adventure; not necessarily travel but would seek adventure in any fun place or activity.
Give us a brief description of where you went and what the trip was about.
Fifth Chukker Polo and Country Club is set within Kangimi Resorts, on the Kaduna to Jos Road, Kaduna State, It is acclaimed to be one of the biggest Resorts in West Africa, which offers a range of activities. These activities include the Polo Club, stables, basket ball court, tennis pitch, a pool side which is set around the club house and around some of the huts… etc. It is a life style resort which gratifies your typical cosmopolitan traveller as well as your classic polo enthusiast.
The trip was essentially for some fun and relaxation. It wasn’t like we had been planning it. Some of us had decided to go a week or two before the time, while some joined in one/two to three days till we departed. I guess there was a need to unwind, ease up, enjoy the serenity and (for some of us), acquaint ourselves with the stories we had heard or photographs we had seen. I think I’d be speaking our minds if I said we primarily wanted to luxuriate and laze around for just a bit. We deserved it! So we tagged it “Girls Trip“.
