How To Travel To Togo

AfricaTogoHow To Travel To Togo

By plane

Lomé is served by a number of airlines on a regular basis. However, traveling straight to Togo is often more costly than going via Ghana’s capital, Accra. Buses departing from Accra towards the border at Aflao are comfortable, air-conditioned, and moderately priced. Travelers must cross the border into Lomé from Aflao and arrange their own transportation once within Togo.

By car

There are bush taxis aplenty. These are essentially four-door vehicles with four passengers in the rear and two in the front. You may take bush taxis to Lomé for $5 from either Accra or Benin. You may then transport them to more remote regions. You may even offer to pay for the whole vehicle so that you don’t have to share. Calculate the cost of six individuals and then negotiate down from there. Togo is connected to Benin and Nigeria to the east, and Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire to the west, via the Trans-West African Coastal Highway. The highway will continue west to seven additional ECOWAS countries after work in Liberia and Sierra Leone is completed. Togo is also connected to Burkina Faso by a paved roadway, which leads north-west to Mali and north-east to Niger.

By bus

Overland buses are available from Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Benin.
