Jolinaiko Eco Tours - Experience West Africa!
Jolinaiko Eco Tours logo

Togo is a sliver piece of land which finds itself hidden on the topographical map between the countries Ghana, Burkina Faso and Benin. Although it is unknown to many people, Togo offers some extra-ordinary and interesting sites. Since Togo is very small, Jolinaiko Eco Tours most of the times offers tours through Togo in combination with the surrounding countries.

I know Apollo since 2001. From the beginning I experienced him as a very reliable person who never lets you down.

I have been four times in Ghana. Every time I met Apollo. He arranged a training period for my niece. He has the ability to work with all kinds of people.

I also went to Togo and Benin with Apollo. When my mother visited me he arranged a reliable driver for us. He never let me down.

Since it is way too much to describe all details of our journey, we will give a short list of highlights which will be in our minds forever: - the meeting with the Voodoo priest in Ouidah - the meeting with the King of Abomey - the visit to the Tamberma people in the north of Togo - the impressive walk to and view of the Akloa falls - the stay at the stilt village Ganvié - the lunch with Boris and his family - Cotonou's night life with Salsa bars - and much more!

We can advise anyone to visit West-Africa, especially Benin. The culture is magnificent, the culture and history is everywhere, and people are very very friendly and social.
