TOGO & BENIN
IN THE LAND OF TRIBES AND MASKS
Enjoy a trip in two countries running alongside the Gulf of Guinea, tiny and fascinating. During your trip, you will experience tribal villages and ways of living embedded with powerful cultural traditions. This itinerary will take you from Lomé to the Atakora Mountains. You will discover the Tamberma and Somba tribes, who live and build spectacular adobe castles. You will learn about their social structure by listening to how their houses are organized. Meet with Taneka people who live following strict cultural rules. The men’s life is punctuated by a long initiation rite. From the Atakora back to the coast: the cradle of voodoo. Come and meet with fetish priests, healers, and oracles. Witness the state of deep trance adepts can reach when, during voodoo ceremonies, they “become gods”.
