What to expect
Discover Lomé, the vibrant capital of Togo that shines as bright during the day as at night! Lomé boasts museums, markets, nightclubs, and boutiques in addition to the beach and the great Port of Lomé. Visit the renowned and unforgettable Akodessewa Fetish Market, the largest Voodoo market in the world. Located in the heart of the city, this market is where you can go to find objects like leopard heads, elephant feet, and chimpanzee paws that are believed by traditional healers to possess the power to heal and protect. Then, visit the Woold Home, also known as the Maison des Esclaves (House of Slaves), the home of a 19th-century English slave trader once used as a prison to hold slaves captive. See Lomé's notorious wells, then breathe in the fresh air of Lake Togo and go for a swim. Cross Lake Togo by canoe and explore the historic Voodoo village of Togoville. Later, as is customary at VS-Togo, attend a party rich in color and sound before your departure, hosted by volunteers at the organization. Visitors also have the option to take a 3-hour version of this tour, which includes a guided visit to the Woold Home and Akodessewa Fetish Market only.
