Benin's largest city and its seat of government, bustling Cotonou also has one of the largest ports in West Africa.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cotonou: Ouidah (Ouidah Museum of History, Porte du non retour, & more). Spend the 8th (Tue) exploring nature at Parc National de la Pendjari. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Fondation Zinsou, tour the pleasant surroundings at Fidjrosse Beach, enjoy some diversion at Lac Nokoue, and admire all the interesting features of Stade de l'Amitie.
