Santa Claus Xmas Kayaking Expedition

The story really is the same: We go through terrible traffic and noise each Christmas season in Ghana, and end up stressed about the excess pocket costs in Accra. It’s time to do something different this year, which is why we are happy to propose a yo-ho-ho Christmas expedition to Survival Island –  complete with santa clause, elf and special costumes, and without the bottle of rum (of course) ;-).

We’ll leave the Accra Mall at 6PM on December 24, and drive some 2-and-a-half hours to the Volta Gorge area. The first leg of the adventure will involve taking on a series of forested hills to get to Survival Beach. We’ll deploy from there to the Isle of Rocks for the access pass to Survival Island. The rest of the weekend will be spent exploring all Lake Volta’s congregated islands and living the life of modern-day Explorers on Survival Island on this final open kayaking expedition of the 2019 adventure season.

Adventure dates: December 24-26, 2019.
Price: 599-GHS
Departure location: Accra Mall Car Park
Departure time: 6.00PM

What to Pack: A 20-litre backpack, a pair of outdoor walking sandals, good hiking shoes, a cap or hat, 2 water bottles, 3 sets of outdoor clothing – including a t-shirt and a pair of shorts, one sleeping bag and mat, wash kit – small towel, sponge and soap, toiletries, 1 plate or bowl for meals, a tube of insect repellent, torchlight and spare batteries, and a box of matchsticks, plus the costumes.
