Togo Tourism

Togo is a natural tourist country. In spite of its limited surface, the country has enormous tourist assets. A diversity of landscapes spread in each of the five regions, which makes it a “miniature Africa”, sites and monuments recognized internationally (Fazao National Park, fauna of Alédjo, waterfalls of Kpimé, Womé and others) and a coastal strip of beaches with fine sands, on 45 km, bathed by the the Atlantic Ocean.

The national park of Fazao – Malfakassa

Adjoining the Fazao – Malfakassa Mountains range, sumptuously dressed in a mosaic of vegetation formations, the park is scattered with beautiful forest galleries and fertile plains colonized by many plant species known for their sweet aromas, under which we see buffaloes, elephants, antelopes, hartebeests, wart hogs, etc.
