Togo – The Thin Sliver of West Africa!
Go Volunteer Africa welcomes you to Togo a beautiful narrow country in West Africa. Togo is sandwiched between Ghana on the west and Benin on the east, with a small border with Burkina Faso to the north, and a 56km coastline on the Atlantic Ocean to the south.
If you prefer the road less traveled, Go Volunteer Africa has a perfect destination for you: Togo! Even though this small country it’s exceptionally beautiful, and the people here are super friendly –it’s not part of the tourist circuit like it neighboring Ghana.
And that’s precisely what makes it ideal for those who prefer to explore places off the beaten track! Its great diversity of landscapes ranges from lakes and palm-fringed beaches along the Atlantic coastline to the rolling forested hills in the centre; heading further north, the mantle of lush forest is replaced by the light-green and yellowy tinges of savannah.
