All included: transportation, food, lodging, entrance fees

Day 1 – The Mono River

From Lomé, we head East to reach the River Mono, where we embark on a traditional pirogue. We ride the river observing the flora, birds, and human activity until we arrive in a charming shack by the river. The cook prepares fishermen’s favorite meal made of fresh fish and local delicacies for our delight.


We navigate back through the mangroves, and those who want can enjoy a swim in the river. Then we leave the river for the Ecomuseum Guindoua of Aneho. There, the museum creator welcomes us warmly before we enjoy a stroll in the garden, learning about the local flora. Our host tells us about his fight to protect and conserve local flora, including the mangroves of the river while being served refreshments.


Before dark, we settle in the guest house entirely constructed with local material and decorated with pieces from local artists and artisans. African dinner is served on the roof terrace, facing the ocean.

Day 2 – The Beach

After breakfast, we pay homage to our ancestors who were shipped out of the continent at the House of Slaves. We pause to take in the moment.


We have lunch in a beach resort where we take the time to appreciate the pool and beachfront.

Back in Lomé, we visit a painter in his workshop. We discover his art and passion around drinks before saying goodbye at our starting point.
