About Togo

Situated along the Gulf of Guinea in West Africa, Togo is a fascinating combination of diverse cultures and natural beauty. Often referred to as the "Pearl of West Africa," this small country holds a wealth of tradition, landscape and history.

From the bustling markets of the capital Lomé to the remote villages nestled in the hills, the country's cultural heritage is a testament to its ethnic diversity. More than 40 ethnic groups contribute to the country's mosaic, each with their own languages, customs, and arts.

The country's landscapes range from palm-fringed beaches along the coast to rolling hills and lush valleys. The Togolese mountains run through the center of the country, offering picturesque scenery and opportunities for trekking and exploration.

The country's history is a blend of indigenous traditions and colonial influences, and the architecture and cuisine reflect this mix. The Anejo Slave House and the Grand March in Lomé offer a glimpse into Togo's past.

Discover hidden gems, learn about its history and culture, and embark on a journey that reflects the essence of a nation where cultural diversity and natural beauty are harmoniously combined.
