Voodoo, poigant history, beautiful beaches, incredible wildlife and spectacular scenery; Benin – situated on the coast of Western Africa – offers all this and so much more.
As the birthplace to voodoo, spirits, fetishes and spirituality is very much at the heart of everything in Benin's cities and communities. You'll get to experience this to the full on a Fred. Olsen cruise to Benin; a visit to the city of Cotonou affords a chance to explore the Fetish Market within the sprawling Grand Marché de Dantokpa.
Discover diverse architecture too, see how Benin serves as a vital part of Africa's import and export industries, or simply revel in the beauty of the country's wild side, its golden sands and its wildlife.
