Ouidah Tour Highlights

Day 1: Get ready to embark on a captivating journey through the heart of Benin! We'll whisk you away from Cotonou or Lomé, igniting the adventure with a drive to the historic town of Ouidah. Brace yourself for a unique experience at an African contemporary art museum, where creativity knows no bounds. After an inspiring morning, we'll taste a delightful lunch amidst the artistic treasures.


We dive into a city tour that will etch memories into your soul. Follow the steps of history along the Slave Route, a path laden with stories of pain and resilience. Discover the voodoo sacred places where ancient traditions pulse with life. The city's different architectural styles will make you better understand its history.


We'll find solace in our charming lodge, steeped in tradition and heritage, setting the stage for a serene night. Then, we'll gather on the terrace of a local restaurant, where delectable cuisine that mirrors the vibrant spirit of Benin awaits us.


Day 2: We'll set our course towards the tranquil Lake Ahémé. A boat ride through mangroves will transport you where the spa beckons with promises of rejuvenation.


Here, you'll enjoy local delicacies, a symphony of flavors reflecting Benin's bounty. Embark on a sensory journey as you indulge in a full-body argyle mask, a ritual that will leave your skin glowing with vitality. The shea butter massage that follows is a sublime caress, melting away the cares of the world. As you surrender to relaxation, let the echoes of the lake lull you into a state of blissful tranquility.

As the day draws to a close, we'll bid farewell to this oasis, returning to Cotonou or Lomé, hearts full of memories forever lingering in the soul.
