Togo is one of the smallest African countries located in the west of the continent. It borders Ghana from the west, Benin from the east, and its northern neighbor is Burkina Faso. Its shores are lapped by the waters of the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic. In its history, the territory of Togo was part of the infamous "Slave Coast," where human trafficking took place at the expense of European and American states. Togo is, by most of its territory, in the tropics, in so-called sub-Saharan Africa. The southern part of the country is a coastal part with tall palm trees, while in the central part, the relief of hills overgrown with forests prevails, while the northern part is mostly in savannas. Togo is a relatively rarely visited country, and it can be very generous for amateur researchers.
