Benin has a little bit for everybody! There are beautiful beaches in the south, Pendjari Safari park in the North, historical slave trade remnants and palaces of the Abomey Kings of the past.
  • The stilt village of Ganvie, Benin is one of the more touristy places in the country. It’s worth the visit, but also worth spending the night if you want to avoid the few other tourists you might see.
  • The Atacora region in Northern Benin is home to the Somba people. Many still reside in their traditional Tata Somba houses. It’s possible to visit these amazing houses with the right guide and a bit of planning!
  • It’s possible to go on a safari in Pendjari National Park in Northern Benin. There are lions, elephants, antelope and many other amazing animals to see, and you might just have the park all to yourself like us!
