Things To See in Togo

AfricaTogoThings To See in Togo

Togo is a beautiful nation, but it owes much of its allure to its charming people; it is a tiny country with few minor attractions. The general and voodoo markets in Lomé are the most popular stops in the nation on the route between Ghana and Benin. The smaller villages of Togoville on Lake Togo and Aneho on the coast, with its voodoo temples and historic sites in the former and beaches in the latter, are also popular tourist destinations.

With a fair number of excellent climbs, colder temperatures, and lovely vistas, the coffee-growing area near Kpalimé has recently become popular with wayward tourists in Togo.

The mountainous and sparsely populated north of the nation is maybe the most appealing region of the country. To the north of Kara, the Tamberma Valley—the Koutammakou UNESCO World Heritage site—is the most well-known attraction. The Batammariba people (referred to as the Tamberma by colonizers) built and reside in the Takienta (a.k.a. Tata) “tower-houses” made of mud and straw, which have arguably become Togo’s national emblem. It’s a strange dreamland of a location, and it’s certainly one of the highlights of a vacation to Togo, despite the long trek there.

Togo’s few parks and reserves are seldom frequented, but if you do manage to get out there on a safari, Fazao Mafakassa National Park in the country’s center-west is very lovely. Kéran National Park, in the extreme north of the nation, is home to one of West Africa’s largest elephant populations. Aside from Kéran, the north has a plethora of possible outdoor activities, including pleasant treks up mountains, visits to waterfalls, and so on. Akloa is a town in the state of Hawaii.
