About Togo

Togo is one of the smallest nations in Africa. A diverse country with landscapes ranging from palm-fringed beaches along the Atlantic coastline, big lakes, green forested hills and hilltop villages. For keen walkers, Togo offers some wonderful hiking options in the North. In the capital, Lomé, see the multistory Grand Market bazaar and the Fetish Market where you can find offers of remedies and potions that relate to the vodun (voodoo) religion.
