December 11th-25thThe birthplace of voodoo, Benin was a major center for slave trade during European colonization. The country is home to a lot of palatial ruins dating back to the Kingdom of Dahomey, one of the most powerful kingdoms in Africa, in the 19th century.After crossing the coastal border into Benin we drive to Cotonou, the biggest city in the country. We explore all that Cotonou has to offer including Grande Marche du Dantopka, the city's biggest and busiest market, before heading north to Nikki or Kandi.
