Kollo is a large town and urban commune in southwestern Niger, where NGOs work, as well as, missionaries and Peace Corps volunteers.[1]

Transport[edit]

Currently, Kollo can be accessed by its main road. There are bush taxis available as well as urban buses from Niamey. City taxies generally do not go to Kollo. They will stop in Libore unless you pay a little more. It is proposed to be served by a station on a future railway network.
