Butterfly Walk in Kpalime, Togo

Butterfly Walk in Kpalime, Togo

I always love butterfly so when I found out there’s a butterfly walk near Kpalime, Togo, I hired a car from the lake resort in Lome to go there. People told me it would took me 2 hours to get there and OFCOURSE IT TOOK MORE THAN THAT! I went there at around 11am and arrived there at 2pm. If anyone want to see the butterfly, it’s better to arrive there at noon since all the butterfly will come and drink water in the waterhole!

        When I arrived Kpalime, I need to hire a guide from town to take me to the mountain. The butterflies love to live there because the weather is cooler in the mountain and there’s lots of flowers over there. Also, there’s lots of waterholes for the butterflies to drink water from. To me, it’s really very interesting to see butterflies sitting on the wet ground to drink water:)

After we arrived the mountain, I had to hire another guide to take me to this butterfly walk! He took a net with us so he could caught some butterfly for us to look at.

Although it passed noon already, I could still saw a lot of butterflies over there. Just imagine if I go there at noon, should be impressive:) We passby so many different plants, flowers and trees. I was so happy to see Mimosa ( a sensitive plant that when you touch the leave, it will close) because there’s lot of them in the mountain of Hong Kong:)

Many plants carry natural colors and I had seen them when I did the spice tour in Zanzibar-very interesting:)

The last photo is the house of a very famous African medicine man. After he dies, local people made a statue for him since he had cured many people.

To me, Africa is filled with resources, I just hope they will make the most of them later and NOT everything is from China anymore!

  1. Dearest Tammy,
    The first photo is a bad example of Africa. They should not catch all those beautiful butterflies and frame them for sales! That way, sooner or later they will become extinct. They can show beautiful posters of them but not hunting them down for money.
    Natural die is always interesting and nature does have lots of it, in several countries. Enjoy your trip further and stay safe!
    Hugs to you,
    Mariette
