With Ghana to the east, Benin to the west and Burkina Faso to the north, overlooking the Gulf of Guinea, Togo is a very small state in West Africa that leaves great memories to those who venture there! The Togolese tourist guide invites us to explore the diversity of Togolese landscapes and cultures, starting with "Lomé la belle", the capital of the country known for the many floors of its Grand Market, its fetish market full of voodoo talismans, but also for its endless nights of celebration. Moving away from the coconut-lined beaches of the coast, you can access the plateaus, waterfalls and green mountains of the interior, dotted with towns and villages, each more welcoming than the next. In the north, we discover the savannah region, before reaching the Nok caves, on the Burkinabe border. Wherever you are in Togo, you are never alone, there is always a good soul to ask you if everything is fine, if you have arrived safely. Welcome! Welcome!
When to go to Togo?
If you are wondering when to go to Togo, learn here that the country is subject to two seasons: the dry season, from October to March, and the rainy season, from April to September. Togo is, however, pleasant all year round. While each season offers different attractions, the best time to travel to Togo is certainly from November to February, taking into account that during December and February, the country can be covered by a kind of fog due to desert winds, called harmattan. March, April and May are among the hottest months of the year. They are immediately followed by the rainy season which lasts until October. The rainy season is also not an obstacle to travel, as these rains, although heavy, are often temporary. The vegetation at this time of year is particularly lush, but some tourist sites are becoming difficult to access. Let us also note this highlight of the Togolese agenda, the Festival of Black Deities. This annual international festival is usually held in December. Four days are devoted to cultural festivals around voodoo beliefs in the localities of Lomé, Aneho, Klouvidonou and Glidji (45 km south-east of Lomé). This festival welcomes fans from Haiti, Brazil, the USA, Côte d'Ivoire and Benin. This festival was created by the Acofin association. In 2015, the 10th edition took place. So when to go to Togo? All year round, with a preference for October and November
