Discover The beauty of Benin

In the beguiling West African nation of Benin, birthplace of the voodoo tradition, you are guaranteed a unique and magical time. This little-known French speaking country – steeped in history and blessed with coastline and countryside – is on the verge of its big break. There’s never been a better time to visit! It may be small compared to some of its expansive African neighbours, but Benin is crammed full of attractions both natural and manmade. Cotonou is a vibrant, bustling, and booming city; unspoilt but tourist friendly, it is the perfect base for your exploration of Beninese life. Great nightlife, restaurants and shopping at the Grand Marché du Dantokpa complement the pristine palm-fringed beaches on the Atlantic coast. Learn the story of the African slave trade in the chilled-out city of Ouidah. Oozing a laidback French/Portuguese vibe, Ouidah is home to some fantastic museums detailing the history of slavery and voodoo. Follow the monument-lined Slave Route leading to the Door of No Return, an impressive memorial arch on the waterfront. After a moving trip down memory lane, retire to one of Ouidah’s many golden beaches and soak up the gorgeous African sun. For an experience like no other, sign up for the Voodoo Trail and take a walk on the Beninese wild side. If you’re feeling adventurous, the Voodoo ceremony experience and the Python Temple visit are perfect choices for you. Venture away from the coastal cities to discover the rugged, unkempt north. The Pendjari National Park is home to some West Africa’s famous wildlife. Lions, cheetahs, elephants and hippos all thrive here against the backdrop of the breathtaking Atakora Mountain Range. Providing a refreshing contrast to the buzz of Cotonou, Porto Novo is Benin’s charming, unassuming capital city. Celebrate the country’s Afro-Brazilian culture at the Musée da Silva, or check out ceremonial masks and costumes at the Ethnographic Museum. An exciting combination of cultural intrigue and a plethora of natural wonders make Benin a small package that contains some of the very best things in Africa.
