Benin has fantastic tropical weather that can be enjoyed all-year round and the impeccable beaches are beautifully quiet – potentially, you and your family will have the beaches to yourself. If you are keen on your kids learning about hidden African history – learn about the West African kingdoms that once ruled the land and the country’s once-strong ties to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. The best destinations to travel with children are Grand Popo, Ganvie and Pendjari National Park. If you are traveling with teenagers, make sure you check out Ouidah. If museums aren’t your kids’ thing, stick to the beaches, which have a lot of activities for the young ones to enjoy like boat tours, snorkeling, diving and fishing tours.
