Togo is a small country located in West Africa occupying an area of only 56,785 sq. km. The country extends as a long strip of land from its southern coast on the Bight of Benin. Togo's coastline is only 56 km long. Togo is largely made up of rolling savannahs in the north, a hilly central region, and a flat coastal plain in the south. Togo is bordered by three other nations, Ghana, Burkina Faso, and Benin

The Ouatchi Plateau has an average elevation of 60 to 90 m and stretches inland for around 32 km beyond the coast. To the northeast of this plateau is a tableland with elevations ranging from 400 to 460 m. The Mono River and its tributaries drain this region.

The Togo Mountains host the highest point in the country, the 986 m tall Mount Agou. These mountains run north to south along the western banks of the Sio River. Hilly and mountainous terrains continue to creep northward until they gradually flatten out into grassland past the Kara River. These northern savannahs have all manner of exotic African wildlife and can be seen primarily at Lions National Park. 

The Oti River's watershed comprises a sandstone plateau drained by the Oti and its tributaries are located to the north of the Togo Mountains. The Dapaong cliffs are located further northwest. To the south, the landscape along the narrow coast features low-lying sandy beaches that give way to tidal flats and shallow lagoons. As observed on the physical map above, Lake Togo, a lagoon, is located in this region along with the capital city of Lome.
