Santa Claus Family Kayaking Expedition

The story really is the same: We go through terrible traffic and noise each Christmas season in Ghana, and end up getting stressed about the excess pocket costs. Other than the visit of family, it does end up getting boring, and we’d like to help you do something about it.

This year’s season should be different.  We are happy to propose a yo-ho-ho Christmas expedition to Survival Island, and we invite the whole family (parents and children alike) to present on this final kayaking expedition of the 2019 adventure season. Folks are invited to present with santa clause, elf and special costumes for costume night on Survival Island on Saturday, December 25.

We’ll leave the Police Post of the Accra Mall at 6PM sharp 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 on a night hike on the 24th, and getting to Survival Island by motor powered boat. We’ll set up our camping tents and hammocks under the stars and spend the first night. 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 till December 26 when we all will kayak the 3.5km expanse of Lake Volta and end an amazing adventure year in style.
