Welcome Dinner - Today you will fly into Benin and get settled at our beautiful and cozy property in the heart of the capital city. We will bring in the trip with a sunset welcome dinner and pool party which will be the perfect way to meet your new family that you’ll be exploring with for the next 6 days.
Today we will be visiting the floating village of Ganvie. Ganvie is a village built on stilts in the middle of Lake Nokoué in southern Benin, close to the city of Cotonou. The village was founded in the 17th century by people looking for peace and safety during the slave trade. We will have lunch at Ganvie by local village women at a floating restaurant in Ganvie. After visiting this unique village we will stop at a local market where this will be a perfect time to get some souvenirs or some hand crafted items.
Today we will drive to the city of Porto Novo where we will get a kayak and cruise around the serene and tranquil river. As you cruise you may see local kids swimming in the river, adults working in the river, and the locals living their normal lives. We will cruise to a local village where you will witness how they live day to day and interact with them.
