17-day round-trip Benin with voodoo festival
Meet the Kings of magical Benin

All in a sudden he appears from out of nowhere, quietly and steadily continuing his way. The King of the Forest seems to be totally unaware of our presence, not feeling rushed at all. A nearby water pool is his destination. The messengers of the forest have timely announced his Highness’ arrival. Most of the animals have cleared the way for his Majesty.
Not far from there a voodoo King enters the stage. Dressed in bright colors and decorated with impressive numbers of amulets and jewelry. He’s leading a dancing and singing crowd of followers. The beats of the drums attract even more people. It’ll be hard to miss out on the King’s arrival!

Benin is not just another African country. It combines history, nature, ancient cultures, a rich voodoo tradition and much more in a country, well prepared to welcome guests. In this journey we take you along a series of the country’s highlights and to some of its well-kept secrets, making sure you’ll have an amazing experience and a journey to remember. Join us to stilt villages and ancient traditions, to traditional architecture and history, to a wildlife park and to Benin’s annual voodoo festival. We are looking forward to take you on a journey along Benin’s Kingdoms, making you meet its Kings along the way!

GUARANTEED DEPARTURE
15-day small-scale group journey Burkina Faso

Waving children, hippopotamus, impressive rock formations, reservoirs, picturesque villages, plantations and centuries-old cliff houses, our Burkina Faso Hiking journey combines a sequence of special places and experiences!

This hiking trip takes you to the countryside of West Burkina Faso and her welcoming inhabitants.
Natural wonders, stillness and an introduction to the local people and their culture go hand in hand.
With permission of the village chiefs nights are spent in picturesque villages with traditional mud-built houses. You get to know the local people, sleep underneath star-spangled skies and walk on trails, which are shared with the locals. Taste the fruits of the season, while the guide shares his knowledge about daily life of the mainly animist population.
Walking from Niansogoni to Tengrela you experience Burkina Faso in a truly unique way.
 
Travelers’ experiences:
Nice trip, beautiful country, kind people.
We have been to places, where hardly any tourist has been.
Reinaud and Frank, November 2015

Once a year the people of San gather for a collective fishing event. Last week the 618th edition took place and it was a fun and muddy event.

You love architecture? Visit the Kassena villages in the South of Burkina Faso. The traditional decorations turn every house into a piece of art.
