Togo

Palm tree lined beaches, hilltop and fishing villages, great lakes, fortresses, the people of Batammariba, and voodoo ceremonies are just a few on the long list of Togo’s highlights.
Despite the fact that it is the smallest country in terms of land surface in West Africa, Togo entices intrepid travellers fond of out of the way places. Though some popular cities like Lomé boast outstanding beaches and attract more visitors, it is not the same as venturing into the hinterland rural areas, where vibrant colourful markets, traditional festivals, a wide range of stunning landscapes, warm people, rustic habitats and a very wide range of cultures will keep you amazed.
The northern part of the country, though sometimes difficult to access due to poor route maintenance, includes incredible natural history revealed in rainforest, savannah, cascades, mountains and wildlife.

Togo offers the traveller a peaceful, almost rural face, with traditional cultures that are still very important. Even the capital seems to be spared the hellish urbanization that characterizes many large African cities. And, by going further north of Togo, one discovers a territory still rich with superabundant nature, strewn with hills, forests, and wooded savannah.
