Tour Plan

The day begins with a tour of Assigame Market, highlighting the diverse goods for sale. Next is a visit to Monument de L'Independance, a striking tribute to Togo's independence from France on April 27, 1960. This monument features a human silhouette carved into the structure, surrounded by promenades, palm trees, manicured lawns, fountains, and a black wrought iron fence. Afterward, head to the Togo National Museum in the capital city of Lomé. Founded in 1975, this museum contains ethnographic, cultural, and artistic exhibits.

The journey starts in Togoville. After an hour's drive past Lake Lome, we will arrive in Grand-Popo, Benin. Benin is a French-speaking West African country and the birthplace of the "voodoo" religion and the former Dahomey Kingdom from about 1600-1900. In Grand Popo, we will visit Villa Karo, a Finnish-African cultural center and artist residency in the coastal village. Villa Karo's mission is to build connections between Finnish and African artists and cultural figures. We will also make a 45 minute drive to visit the Python Temple in Ouidah, home to over 60 revered pythons that are worshipped. You can choose to have a snake wrapped around your neck or just observe them from a distance. After our activities in Ouidah and a good lunch, we will make the 35 minute drive to Cotonou. In Cotonou, we will visit the Dantokpa Market to see the bustling trade at one of West Africa's open markets.

The Square of Adanzunji, known as one of the main stages on the slave trade route, was where the troops of the Kingdom of Abomey departed for war since the reign of King Ghezo (1818-1858). Before attacks, the king would ask his ancestors (the spirits of past kings and dignitaries) for assistance and triumph. This ceremony always took place on the eve of a war sanctioned by the king. Seated in front of the palace, the king would listen as war chiefs and riders made promises on the “forum of courage” to vanquish enemies
