Top Places to Visit in Benin:

Lake Nokoue
This lake and the little village is wonderful spot for bird observers. The species that mention this 16,000-hectare lake their abode incorporate the African Openbill and the white-crested heron. The lake is in a dangerous state for some environmental and biological complications, for instance, cutting trees, contamination, and killing of the wildlife.

It is more of a location to go through than to literally pass an expanded period of time traveling. The city is an almost totally modern spot but it is well worth exploring the bazaar, which is disputably the largest and the finest in Benin. The distinction between the vibrant bazaar and the comparative tranquility of neighboring Abomey is surprising. The most engaging times for the bazaar area in the mornings, so these should be shunned if manageable (unless obviously, you do well on the chaos).

It is another wonderful tourist attraction in Benin to get away from the well-trodden visitors’ trail (if there is a well-visited track in Benin). The city of Pehunc is familiar for its ornaments so the bazaars in this place are further special. Throughout the year rituals occur in Pehunco presenting the native king’s horse. There are not plenty of views as such in Pehunco, it is only a usual Benin village and this is the key cause for traveling.

Situated a suitable 50km away from the Pendjari National Park, the town of Natitingou also has several of its own draws that make it a worth short visit on a trip to Benin. The town has its own museum which is housed in a French colonel edifice and chronicled the lifestyle of the Somba people. Actually, the town of Natitingou is one of the finest spots to find the Somba people’s way of leading life and ways of constructing. Natitingou is also a wonderful spot to find Shea butter being produced.

Grand Popo
The city of Grand-Popo has an interesting history principally for the significant part it played in the slave-dealing. The city exudes African beauty and the people are cordial. The city is nearly an hour’s drive from Cotonou and provides an ideal change of pace from the bustling town. There are plenty of backside hotels and resorts in the city and the beaches are a magnificent location to rest and bathe.

A lake village in Benin, Africa, Ganvie is situated in Lake Nokoué, close to Cotonou. With a population of nearly 20,000 people, it is possibly the biggest lake village in Africa and as such is very famous among travelers. Actually based on agriculture, the village’s key industries other than tourism are today fishing and fish producing.
