Benin, being the birthplace of voodoo, is steeped in a rich and complex history.
A visit to Benin could therefore not be complete without learning about spirits and fetishes and the Afro-Brazilian heritage of Ouidah, Abomey and Porto Novo,
Benin will also wow visitors with its palm-fringed beach idyll of the Atlantic coast, the rugged scenery of the north and the Pendjari National Park, one of the best wildlife parks in West Africa; lions, cheetahs, leopards, elephants and hundreds of other species thrive here.
There are good roads, a wide range of accommodation options and ecotourism initiatives that offer the chance to delve into Beninese life. Now is an ideal time to go: the country sits on the cusp of discovery.
