TOGO TRAVEL GUIDE

lgbt_small.png

Togo, a West African nation on the Gulf of Guinea, is known for its palm-lined beaches and hilltop villages. Koutammakou, inhabited by the Batammariba people, is a traditional settlement of fortress-like clay huts dating to the 17th century.

 

Togo is probably one of the nicest places in Western Africa. Roads are pretty good, distances small, beaches sandy and white, people-friendly, hills and mountains waiting to be explored. What else do you need? The capital city, Lomé is an excellent place to start your trip. Lots of day-trips can be made to Togoville on the borders of Lake Togo or Aneho.

 

When you go north Kpalime and its beautiful hilly surroundings deserve a visit; trekking and hiking in the area are wonderful. Continue further north if you are into hiking. Kara is the place to go. Nearby is Tamberma Valley which has an intriguing castle-like structure known as Tatas. The national parks of Fazao and Keran offer good opportunities to view wildlife.

HEALTH RISKS IN TOGO

Be aware of possible health risks in 

Togo

Yellow fever - The yellow fever virus is found in tropical and subtropical areas of Africa and South America. The virus is spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. There is no medicine to treat or cure an infection. To prevent getting sick from yellow fever, use insect repellent, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, and get vaccinated.

Zika Virus - Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. Zika can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus. Infection during pregnancy can cause certain birth defects. There is no vaccine or medicine for Zika.

Malaria - Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease caused by a parasite that commonly infects a certain type of mosquito which feeds on humans. People who get malaria are typically very sick with high fevers, shaking chills, and flu-like illness. Although malaria can be a deadly disease, illness and death from malaria can usually be prevented.

Dengue - Dengue is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. About one in four people infected with dengue will get sick. For people who get sick with dengue, symptoms can be mild or severe.
