Overview

Congratulations! In your hands is the key to a world of magic and mystery more potent than anything Harry Potter could throw at you. Enter the world of Benin: a place hidden away in the green folds of west Africa; a place that few have heard of, but a place that will leave you enchanted by its spell.

 

In this extraordinary guide, Stuart Butler explains how to win an audience with metamorphosing royalty, why it's best to avoid an Egungun, and where to find an eight-foot dancing chicken. Fortunately, though, normality is also on hand: enter Benin's sun-scorched landscape, stilt villages, and flamboyant markets, just waiting to be explored.
