A small, vibrant West African destination waiting to be discovered, Togo is a welcoming French-speaking country whose people are steeped in tradition, giving us an incredible insight into ancient beliefs and traditional practices.
The majority of Togolese still have indigenous beliefs while there are also significant Christian and Muslim minorities. Traveling around, visiting some of the many markets and mixing with the locals is a major highlight of your time here. Togo also has a recent dark history and played a prominent part in the tragic slave trade period of this region, which is why it is known as part of the Slave Coast. Dedicating time to visit historical sites, museums and monuments just adds to the many reasons to include Togo as a must-visit destination. It is also easy to incorporate Togo into a multi-country West African tour.
