Benin is a French-speaking country in West Africa. It is bordered by Nigeria to the east, and Burkina Faso and Niger to the north, Togo to the west, The population is dense on the small southern coastline of the Bight of Benin. Porto-Novo is the capital of Benin, but the seat of government is in Cotonou, which is the country’s largest city and economic capital. Benin has a population of approximately 11 million people. It is highly dependent on agriculture, with substantial employment and income arising from subsistence farming.

Indigenous languages such as Fon and Yoruba are commonly spoken in addition to French, which is an official language. Roman Catholicism is the largest religious group in Benin, followed closely by Islam, Vodun and Protestantism. Benin is an affiliate to the United Nations, the African Union, the South Atlantic Peace and Cooperation Zone, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, La Francophonie, the Community of Sahel-Saharan States, the African Petroleum Producers Association and the Niger Basin Authority.

In Benin tourism is an insignificant industry, approximately 150,000 tourists visits Benin per year, but Benin has a high concentration of tourist attractions. Benin’s national parks, and culture are among its major tourist attractions. One of these is Abomey, with palaces that became a World Heritage Location in 1982. The architecture of the capital city Porto Novo’s including its museums attracts tourists.

The best wildlife extents in West Africa are found in north Benin, where W National Park and Pendjari National Park are situated. The ideal time to see the Pendjari National Park‘s wildlife is towards the end of the dry season. The park is reachable to travellers and accommodation is also abundantly available.
