Highlights of Benin

The Republic of Benin is a long stretched country in West Africa. It’s situated east of Togo and west of Nigeria. Cotonou is the capital and the only international airport in Benin. There are direct flights to Benin from Belgium, France, Turkey and a number of African countries. In addition to this, there are 578 kilometres of railways in the country, which were developed under a joint effort with the Republic of Niger.

Benin offers a great variety of vibrant tribal cultures. However, it’s one of the countries where mass tourism has not arrived yet and meeting local communities is an authentic experience.

The festivals of Benin are well known. For instance, every year in January, the festival season starts with the Voodoo festival. However, voodoo rituals are not simply black magic, as most of Western people think.

Voodoo

You can discover tribal villages and ways of living embedded within cultural traditions. For instance, you can meet tribes, who live and build spectacular adobe castles and you learn about their social structure by listening to how their houses are organized. Meet with fetish priests, healers and oracles. Above all, you can witness the state of deep trance during voodoo ceremonies. This is when people “become gods”.

Safari in Benin

The Pendjari National Park sits in north western Benin, adjoining the Arli National Park in Burkina Faso. Named after the Pendjari River, the national park is known for its wildlife and is home to some of the last populations of big game. These include African forest elephant, lion, hippopotamus, African buffalo, and various antelopes. In addition to this, the park is also famous for its birds.
