More info about Benin
The Republic of Benin is a small West African nation along the Gulf of Guinea on the Atlantic coast and bordered by Niger and Burkina Faso in the north, Togo to the west and Nigeria eastward. The country has a democratically elected multiparty government which rules over an ethnically diverse population.
Much of Benin’s ancient traditions survive and the use of figurative masks, the practicing of the Voodoo religion and the presence of witch doctors makes this country a fascinating yet mystical place.
The beautiful palm-lined tropical beaches along the coast contrast sharply with savannah in the north. The climate is classed as tropical in the south and dryer and cooler in the semi-arid northern region.
Benin’s currency is the West African Franc, presently very weak against all major currencies.
French is the official language and it’s advised that you enlist the help of a guide if self-travelling, however, staff at most popular resorts speak English... Show more
