Depart Lome on a 3-day tour of West Africa's cradle of voodoo culture. Cross from Togo into Benin and begin with a visit to Ganvie, a fishing village that stands on stilts in the middle of a lake. Experience the spiritual practices of voodoo here first-hand, interacting with a bokono soothsayer under the lights of oil lamps and an otherwise darkened sky. The next day explore the laid-back town of Ouidah and its snake-filled Temple of Python. Later witness a masked dance of the Zangbeto—traditional voodoo guardians—at a river village.
