BENIN'S PARC NATIONAL DE LA PENDJARI
A published author with 21 titles to her credit, Sheila R. Vitale serves as a pastor and teacher who founded Christ-Centered Kabbalah in 2000. Throughout the years, Sheila Vitale has traveled to various international destinations, including African locations such as Benin.
Benin's place in history is mostly due to it being voodoo's place of origin and its role as a pivotal place for the slave trade over a period of almost 300 years. The association is unfortunate, since Benin has so much more to offer. In fact, the country is rich in natural resources and home to a breathtaking landscape, including Parc National de la Pendjari. This tourist attraction is considered to be one of the best wildlife parks in West Africa.
Located just north of Natitingou, Parc National de la Pendjari boasts of a land area that sprawls over 275,000 hectares. Visitors can spot different endemic species such as lions, leopards, elephants, and even hippopotamuses. Good tracks, woody landscapes, and a waterfall make the park a great place for driving. Visitors are advised to come near the end of the dry season, between November to February, as it is the time when animals tend to hover around water holes.
