Benin

Benin is the lost treasure of West Africa and adventure tours here will uncover voodoo religion, the traditional Tata Somba culture, wildlife and beaches – what more can you ask for?!


Culture and history can be found everywhere from the two-storey mud Tata Somba mud castles to the Route d’Esclaves at Ouidah.  Wildlife can be found in abundance in Pendjari National Park, including the last population of West African lions, and beachtime can be enjoyed on the glorious sands at Grand Popo.  However, like its neighbour Togo, it is the voodoo culture that people are fascinated by – evidence of which lies everywhere from rural celebrations to city markets stalls packed full of bizarre animal parts.
