Togo is situated between Ghana and Benin and is bordered by Burkina Faso in the north. Along the coast, temperatures range from about 75 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, while inland, temperatures range from 70 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Though Togo has a tropical climate, the geography of this 56,785 sq km country is greatly varied from the semi-arid North of the country to the lagoons and marshes in the south, beaches along the southern coastline and rainforests and lakes within the country. The best time to visit is between early November and late April, but visitors are encouraged travel to Togo year-round.
