Ports & Excursions

Lome, Togo

The nation of Togo has long been a favorite destination for experienced travelers. This narrow strip of country features a full range of landscapes and cultures - it is a microcosm of West Africa. While Togo boasts over 40 different ethnic groups with their own traditions and rituals, it is of interest to note that the region is the home of voodoo, which migrated to Haiti as a result of the slave trade.

The narrow nation of Togo extends from the sea toward the heart of Africa. In 1884, King Mlapa III signed a treaty that gave total control of the country to Imperial Germany.
