Moving to Togo: pros and cons

 

One of the poorest nations on the African continent, Togo is also one of the lowest cost of living states in the world.

 

If you are interested in buying a property in Togo, you must absolutely read our mini guide, complete with pros and cons.

                   

Politically, there is a climate of great instability, because, in recent years, there have been episodes of coups d'état which have led to the freezing of international aid precisely because of the lack of respect for human rights.

 

For this very reason, in recent years, a great many volunteers have arrived in Togo on humanitarian missions, working mainly in the medical and health sector.

 

Among the main projects, it is right to mention the strong support of the various organisations for the protection of education and the other rights of the weaker sections of society.

 

As mentioned earlier, the cost of living is very low.

 

 You can have dinner for less than EURÂ 5 and stay for EURÂ 2 a day. 

This price range, however, is caused by the high level of petty crime and the danger of contracting diseases (which is why, before leaving, it is essential to get vaccinated).

 

Let's see now the climate 

 

Togo has two seasons, a winter dry and a rainy summer, the latter strongly influenced by the African monsoon, active from April to October in the center of the country and from May to October in the north.

 

In the coastal area, however, there is a marked decrease in rainfall from July to September.

 

The best time to visit this country is from November to February, the driest and sunniest months.

 

It should be remembered that Togo is the cradle of the Koutammaka region, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2004. In this area it is possible to visit the villages of the Tamberma and Batammariba populations, built in mud but fortified as castles.

If you love mountain scenery and endless valleys, this is the nation for you!

 

How to get there?

 

The main airport is located a few kilometers from the capital and is connected with Europe through France (which hosts several companies, including foreign ones).

The only documentation required is the certification of vaccination against yellow fever.

For the rest of the trips, it is easy to use the bus.
