Togo Off The Beaten Path: 10 reviews and 22 photos
It is common in many parts of West Africa, not just in Togo, for the villagers to burn away part of the undergrowth to encourage the regeneration of new life. This helps in the feeding of wild and domestic animals. We came across huge flames in places, and I did wonder if they ever got out of control. Be careful when walking through the burnt undergrowth, as the ash gets everywhere – my beige trousers were filthy!
