Guide recommendation in Benin

We (me and my wife) have spent a week in Benin between 24 and 30 December 2012 with the guide NoelNabogou and we highly recommend his work. We were with him at Porto Novo, Abomey, Grand Popo, Ouidah, Cotonou and Ganvié. Extremely knowledgeable, considerate, friendly, professional, very attentive to safety and absolutely passionate about his native country. He understood our goal (to know local culture) and based on it he assembled a program that made the trip memorable. We recommend to all those who will travel to Benin to do that with  Noel.

 

Like most of the people from Benin — which was colonized by France — Noel speaks only French, but we're from Brazil with a quite limited knowledge of French language. But we can guarantee that it wasn't an issue at all.

Here are his contacts: Noel Nabogou email: nabogounoel@yahoo.fr / Mobile: (229) 97355974.

We travelled to the Pendjari Park for a 2-day photo safari in Februari 2013. In Natitingou, our hotel Bourgogne recommended Kounta N'TCHA as a guide. He has an "A" license (the best there is) and appeared to be very knowledgeable about the Park. Not only did he find almost all the types of animals there, including lions, he also knows a lot about their habits, the history of his country and even the pot-holes in the roads. Furthermore, he displayed care for the nature and the surroundings (he even cleaned up glass and debris that others left behind alongside the road). He drove our car with care and was joyful all the time. We can highly recommend him for anyone who speaks French; he is working on his English. His contact data are: http://kounta-guide-pendjari.blogspot.com, email:kountanamboni@yahoo.fr, telephone: +(229) 97023083, 95976466
