Pama - A view from our expert author
A gentle haze of peace and tranquillity, Pama hosts numerous lakeside retreats which can be used as great stageposts for a visit to Benin’s Pendjari National Park.
Once capital of the region, Pama now languishes under a gentle haze of quiet and reverence. A selection of elegant resthouses nearby makes for a tranquil retreat, and it’s also a great staging post for trips into Benin’s Pendjari National Park. Visas can be bought on the border for 10,000f, and travel agencies in Ouagadougou, as well as hotels in the region, can organise the trip.
