Destination Information for Togo

The small, narrow country of Togo, in Western Africa, can be driven across in less than an hour. Even the largest cities, including the coastal capital, Lomé, have a town-like feel, and are easily navigated on foot. Most visitors stay within the Maritime Region close to the coast, but those who do venture inland will fall in love with the hills and forests of central Togo and the savannah of the north, with its mud huts built by the native Batammariba people.

Togo is also known for its association with voodoo, which is something that interests many tourists when they visit the popular Fetish Market; around half the population follow the practice. Head to Togoville on the banks of Lac Togo, which is the historic home of voodoo, and you can learn more about the significance of their shrines, charms and other religious customs.

Central Togo is where coffee and cocoa plantations are commonly found, and there are excellent walking and hiking opportunities here for visitors who like to explore on foot. You’ll also discover Fazao Mafakassa National Park, to the West of the central region, home to the last population of elephants in Togo.

It can be challenging to get around during the rainy season from May to October, although there is a drier spell in the south around July to September. For comfortable temperatures across Togo, plan your trip during the months of November to February.

Brucellosis

Brucellosis is a bacterial disease that is mainly contracted by consuming unpasteurised milk and cheese. You can also catch it from eating raw or undercooked meat. Very rarely, the bacteria may spread from person to person, or animal to person, through contact of bodily fluids. Symptoms are similar to the flu and most people make a full recovery after a course of antibiotics.

Schistosomiasis

Schistosomiasis, also called bilharzia, is an infection caused by a parasitic worm that lives in fresh water in subtropical and tropical regions. Avoid swimming in fresh water rivers, streams and lakes if you can. You often don't have any symptoms at first, but after a few weeks may develop a rash, high temperature, cough, diarrhoea and joint pain. Schistosomiasis can usually be treated successfully with a short course of a medication that kills the worms.

Trypanosomiasis

Human African trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness, is a parasitic disease transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected tsetse fly, which is only found in rural Africa. Initial symptoms include severe headache, insomnia, enlarged lymph nodes, anaemia and rash.
