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.
