Where I stayed
Travel with a local fisherman from Agbodrafo across lake Togo to Togoville, located on the Northern banks of the lake, in a Pirogue. Duration of pirogue ride is approximately 25 minutes. Historically, Togoland is significant as it was the site of the signing of a treaty between the German explorer Gustav Nachtigal and Chief Mlapa III that gave the Germans privileges all over
Accomodations: Hotel Nachtigal
Centre Artisanal: a chance to watch local artisans making their handicrafts, mainly wood carving
Maison Royal: A one-room museum containing the throne of the Mlapa dynasty and photos of the former chiefs
Togoville Cathedral: Erected in 1910. Houses a shrine to the Virgin Mary, who supposedly appeared on lake Togo in the 1970s, attracting Pope John Paul II to visit.
