La Brais de Nati is set on a hill just outside the town centre, overlooking the town. You can choose to eat either inside in the traditionally styled hut or outside. We chose to eat outside with a view of the twinkling lights of Natitingou below us.
The food is very good, and although it is a traditional grill featuring local meats there are also plenty of fresh tasty vegetables. I had Guinea Fowl with rice and green beans, carrots, onion and peppers and it was delicious but the portion was huge – far more than I could eat, although I tried my best!
Our driver ordered millet beer which is a local speciality. I decided to play safe and not try it as it is made with local water. It is also very strong. I had my usual Beninoise beer.

Luggage and bags: Re-sealable plastic bags are useful if you visit the Tata Sombas and want to buy Shea butter from one of the villages. The women in the village don’t have any bags and the Shea butter is quite oily and messy, plus they only have large quantities of it. The bags that you get at the airport to take your cosmetics through security are ideal as you can put a portion of Shea butter in and it can be sealed for the rest of your trip.
