The small country of Benin is a stable and safe option for families or groups interested in a tour of West Africa. Bordering the countries of Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, and Togo, Benin features a nice climate throughout most of the year, plenty of national parks and wildlife, as well as a number of historical sites and museums to tour with your family by 7 seater car rental.
Possibly most famous as the birthplace and home of Voodoo, or Vodun as it is called in Benin, the temples and roadside markets of Vodun can be found across the country and it is still the country's official religion. Exported around the world by the masses of slaves from Benin during the Dagomey Kingdom of the 1800s, Vodun remains a part of everyday life for the people of Benin but it is no longer the most prominent religion of the country.
Today over 40% of the population practice Christianity, with Islam a close second practiced by more than 20%. Enjoy the cultural shock of Voodoo temples and markets with your family by 7 seater car hire in Benin, but don't miss the country's other wonders. Beautiful, innovative and interesting, visit the town of Ganvie, constructed on stilts in the center of Lake Nokoué see the mud and clay tower-houses of the north near Togo, and explore the museums, beaches, and more in the country's capital, Porto Novo.
Everyone in your group will require proof of a yellow fever vaccine, which must be presented at the airport upon entering Benin. You can purchase a single or double entry visa into Benin which is issued for 30 days and is not too expensive. Save even more money on your trip and save time at the airport by reserving your 7 seater car rental to await the arrival of your group.
