Indulge your senses with the unique traditions and flavors of Togo during this scenic visit to Aneho, Glidji and Hlande.

Depart the pier for the scenic, 45-minute drive along the coastal trails and through coconut groves en route to Agbodrafo, a former slave-trade post in Togo. A visit will be made to the Pedakondji Fishermen's Village. From here, your drive will continue on through Aneho, the former capital city of Togo, before arriving in Glidji, the spiritual heart of the Guen people. Upon arrival, you will meet the priests of Glidji's sacred forest.

Next, you will rejoin your coach for the drive to Hlande, a lost village in the farmlands. While seated in the shade of a village patio, you will observe the breathtaking ritual dance of the Zangbeto, the traditional night guardians.
