A tiny narrow country tucked between Ghana and Benin, Togo is one of the most vibrant countries in West Africa and the traditional home of the vodun (voodoo) religion.
Near to the sprawling capital of Lomé is the small village of Togoville, a historically significant settlement which is an incredible place to wander and get a taste of Togolese life. Togoville is a very important centre of the vodun religion, and you'll see many creepy 'fetishes' dotted throughout the town and may even get to meet a genuine vodun priestess!
Further inland you'll find beautiful and peaceful landscapes dotted with tiny villages. Near the highland town of Klouto there are some fantastic walks to take in the views and search for the colourful butterflies that inhabit the area. Klouto is also home to a talented drumming group who perfectly capture the energetic rhythms of life in Togo.
