Cruises from Lome
Lome is the capital of Togo, West Africa. Located on the Gulf of Guinea, it is the country's administrative and industrial centre and its chief port. The dock is not within walking distance to town, so shuttle buses are provided. A local drum band and several dancers greet visitors with a performance at the gangway.
White beaches are lined with hotels, while the interior of the city offers a series of markets for avid shoppers. Best known of these would be the Grand Marche for its colourful Togo fabrics, delightful jewellery sold from shops that are attached to their respective manufacturing units, and the Fetish Market that sells ‘protections from evil’.
