Formerly known as the Kingdom of Dahomey, Benin as it is known today has an interesting and dark history waiting to be explored.
As the birthplace of voodoo; with its glittering palaces, floating villages and python-filled temples, Benin oozes the exotic. Benin, like its neighbour Togo is very popular as a multi-country tour destination with Ghana due to its size. It is an exceptionally friendly and stable country with so much to offer travellers wanting to experience West Africa. Benin has a rich, vibrant cultural identity waiting to be discovered. It has a dark history, along with many West African countries, due to the slave trade era that tragically occurred along this coastal belt. A former French colony, Benin gained independence in 1960 and has many cultural sites, beautiful unspoilt beaches and local fetish markets waiting to be explored.
