Michelle Kouletio (United States):
This is an amazing site of over 150 caves used during kindgom battles of over 400 years ago in the Abomey region of Benin. The tour guides are excellent and the site is set up so one can visit the interior of once cave fully in tact as well as climb down into the cave that was first identified when a bulldozer fell into it just a few years ago during road construction.

The grounds are lovely and include fantastic local huts, a playground for kids, and a gorgeous butterfly garden.

A great visit and right off the national road between Cotonou and Parakou at Bohicon.
