Tour Description

Uncover the lush city of Kpalimé, renowned for its beautiful scenery and pleasant tropical climate. Visit a neo-Gothic church built by German colonizers in the early 20th century before strolling to the craft village to admire art made with finesse and dexterity by inspired artisans and to purchase a few unique souvenirs to bring home. After, travel to the mountain to visit Château Vial, the presidential château in the hills to the north of Kpalimé. Then, discover the serene Womé Waterfall by taxi-brousse, or share taxi. To arrive at this idyllic place (~1.5 hours away) you’ll need to climb steep stairs, so pack appropriate footwear—the waterfall is worth it! At the base of the falls, you can bathe in refreshing, crystalline water, surrounded by a majestic landscape. Later, before leaving, taste delicious, fine crafted local delicacies.
