Benin attracts tourists with villages full of houses built on stilts, wildlife reserves and the still alive Voodoo culture.

Benin is located on the Gulf of Guinea, the land border is shared with Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria and Togo. The dominant religion is Christianity, which is believed by about 53% of citizens. A quarter of the population are Muslims, and a fifth are traditional tribal religions. The official language is French. The inhabitants of Benin also communicate in dozens of different local languages (the most common are Fon, Hausa, and Yoruba). Hardly anyone can communicate in English, even in tourist places.

Pendjari and W are one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in West Africa, located near the border with Burkina Faso and Niger. You can see there, among other crocodiles, antelopes, elephants, lions, cheetahs, and hippos.

Originally, most of Benin's southern territory was covered by the rainforest, but it was largely destroyed as man's interference with the natural environment increased. Oil palms and other plants are mainly cultivated in its place. In the central part of Benin there are woody savannas, and in the northern savannah dry - baobabs and other bottle trees grow there.
In Benin, you can find animals such as elephants, buffaloes, leopards, hyenas, antelopes, monkeys (chimpanzees and baboons), crocodiles, hippos, and sometimes also lions.
Benin has several national parks and a large number of reserves scattered throughout the country. The most famous national park in Benin is Pendjari.

The village of Genvie was built on stilts in the middle of the lake by a tribe that wanted to escape the constant invasions of hostile neighbors. There are houses, shops, and cemeteries on stilts. The only way to get here and move is by pirogue across the lake.

The cuisine of Benin, like most West African culinary traditions, is based on rice or local flour products served with a sauce and an insert in the form of fish or meat. As Benin was a French colony, on the city streets, you can meet sellers of French baguettes with toppings.

For such exotic experiences, it is worth choosing Benin as a travel destination.
