Taylor made trips to Benin, Togo, Ghana and Burkina Faso.
We organize overland trips to Benin, Togo, Ghana and Burkina Faso in our 4 × 4 truck for groups up to 12-14 people plus crew. We have camping equipment, thick mattresses, kitchen equipment and water tanks to have self-sufficiency for several days. We can design a trip only to Benin we can combine it and tour also some of its neighboring countries, such as Togo and Ghana or Burkina Faso.
On our trips to Benin we will incorporate a local guide who will help us to better understand the culture and history of the country.
Taylor made trips for groups of friends, business trips and incentives, school trips combining visits to projects and NGOs with cultural visits, trips for travel agencies, anthropological trips, prospecting trips, etc.
The level of comfort and adventure as well as the duration of the trip may vary according to the preferences of the client.
The Republic of Benin is located in the Gulf of Guinea in between Nigeria, Togo, Niger and Burkina Faso.
Geographically, the country is divided into five natural regions: the coastal region, the plateau area, a high plateau with wooded savanna in the north, a mountainous region in the northwest (“Atakora”) and the fertile plains next to the Niger River in the northeast.
Benin is a paradise for lovers of anthropology and ethnography. On a trip to Benin you will discover and live an authentic Africa, full of rituals, where voodoo is the official religion and not a tourist attraction.
Formerly Benin was the powerful Kingdom of Dahomey, from where thousands of slaves embarked to the new world. Interesting museums that will remind us of an atrocious history, ancient UNESCO heritage palaces, colorful markets where we will find curious fetishes are just some cultural visits that we offer.
In the valleys of the Atakora mountain range, in the north of Benin, we find the Somba Country or Otomari Country, a unique natural and cultural territory, where we will find the fascinating tatas, or castle houses.
