Stunning panoramic views from the Danyi plateau, a variety of landscapes, rustic villages under swaying palms, curious children and getting to know the friendly and hospitable population with their centuries-old trades make a journey through Togo an effort worth making!
Our Togo Summer journey combines local life in the mainly animist South with visits of special areas in the North of the elongated country.
From the coast till the traditional tatas in Tamberma Country near the Benin border, the journey is a sequence of culture, nature and most of all a meeting with local life. You’ll taste local dishes, visit with local families, meet village chiefs, learn from a local basket maker, set out on a journey by motor – the local taxi – and have the opportunity to attend the spectacular Bassar fire dances.
A journey through non-touristic Togo is a feast for the senses!
