This is an excellent day excursion for those who want to escape the heat and harried life of the city. The cooler, lush and verdant Kpalime region is relaxing, calming and reinvigorating. Cool down at a waterfall. Visit traditional villages. Hike Mount Kloto and take in beautiful panoramas of the Kloto region. Embark on a spectacular butterfly safari. The day is yours to commune with nature!
From your hotel in Lome, you will be driven to Kpalime and will set on a 2-hr walk through the village of Kouma Konda at the base of Mt Kloto and embark on a botanical excursion and butterfly safari. The natural streams and small pools of water in the woodland provide an ideal habitat for butterflies. The Mt Kloto area now has over 1,000 species of diurnal and nocturnal butterflies. It’s pretty incredible! The best time to see the butterflies is during the rainy season June-Aug, although there are plenty of butterflies all year round. You will enjoy a cool down and a picnic lunch by a waterfall (Kamalo). Then, you will hike Mt Kloto to its summit to enjoy a panoramic 360° view of the Kloto region and the Lake Volta region of Ghana on a clear day. The walk takes about 1-1.5 hr depending on your pace but we offer the option to drive you further up the mountain to shorten your walk to 15 min. Return to Lome.This tour requires a minimum of 2 people and include: a pick up and drop off at a local hotel or the Port of Lome (for cruise passengers), English/French-speaking guides, private car/van, activity fees and complementary bottled water throughout the tour.
