Benin in detail

Travel with Children

  • The Beninese love kids. Visitors with tots will find people extra friendly and helpful.
  • Nappy tables are available only in high-end restaurants.
  • Child-safety seats are hit or miss – best to bring your own.
  • Roads tend to be unpaved, or pavement is uneven, so prams don't do well here.
  • The best spots in Benin for kids are the beaches and wildlife watching at the national parks.
