Laid out by the Germans on a spacious scale, Kara is the relaxed capital of northern Togo and a good base for trips to Koutammakou. Because Gnassingbé Eyadéma, the president of Togo from 1967 to 2005, was from Pya, a Kabye village about 20km to the north, he pumped a lot of money into Kara and the region has remained a political stronghold of the Eyadéma clan. Kara is also the base from which to explore wildlife at Parc Sarakawa.
