About Benin

The original birthplace of voodoo and a main slave trading station for centuries. Learn about spirits and fetishes in the interesting cities of Ouidah and Abomey. Don’t miss out of exploring the unique stilt village of Ganvie, located only 25min by boat ride from the capital city of Cotonou. Benin is also blessed with gorgeous palm-fringed beaches along its coastline and a much different change of scenery in the north at Pendjari Park National, one of the best wildlife parks in West Africa. See elephants, cheetahs, lions, leopards and many other animals there.
