Great adventure
Aug. 2019
This trip consists of three main points:
1. hiking to the top of Afadjato Mountain (great view)
- the climb quite steep (45 min to the top if you are in good shape, or over an hour if you are not), at least tennis shoes are recommended (the guide has only flip-flops)
- take some water and some hiking snacks
- luckily, shade from the jungle protects you from the sun; coming down is much easier
- in case of rain the path gets slippery
- animals seen: 1 squirrel, 1 green monkey, pair of bats (on the top), couple of butterflies, ants, millipeds, other bugs
2. short hike to Wli waterfalls (lower part)
- there is a hiking trail to the upper waterfall, not a part of this trip (takes 2-3 hours, so it is a separate day trip)
- very easy path, interesting though, crosses the creek that flows from the waterfall many times
- BTW, you will cross over to Togo many times on this path, no border signs, no border control (and no visa requirements) :-)
- the walk is 15-20 minutes in each direction, possible stay at the waterfall/lake, swimming possible
- on exit be sure to buy bananas to bribe the monkeys on the next stop
3. Play with monkeys at the Tafi-Atome Monkey sanctuary
- quite close in a nearby village; chief of monkey family climbs on your hand and calmly east banana from your hand
- after he cannot eat more, females from his group also jump to your hand to take the banana; they are not so gentle because they are affraid, so in haste they might unintentionally scratch you
- nice walk through part of the jungle close to the entrance, possibility to see other monkey groups

The only problem with this trip is the transportation infrastructure. To call them roads would be an overstatement. In case you wonder if you have kidney stone, take this trip - if you do have them, this is when they will fall out. If you do not, at least you will be sure.
Try to demand a better car, emphasis on suspension system and comfortable seats.
