About Us


We are a truly indigenous, organically grown innovation in outdoor adventure tourism and have been in business in Ghana since 2010. We curate experiences that employ the adventure disciplines of abseiling, camping, hiking, mountaineering, paintballing, mountain biking, kayaking and unique Island lodging to introduce our customers to life in the Ghanaian outdoors.

We do this in economically viable ways: we create employment, generate revenues, support local communities, and protect natural and environmental resources. And as mountaineers, kayakers, and bikers, we put ourselves at the fore of adventure business leadership every day and have explored the vast expanse of River and Lake Volta where most of our adventure locations exist. We have tested our methods in these most challenging environments, and we know that they work. We work in teams, and we develop strong relationships and agile processes which reflect the changes taking place in global businesses so we can equip our corporate employee customers with the skills-sets they need to stay globally competitive.

Our Mission: We are Ghana’s leading adventure company, and the market leader in experiential learning, outdoor leadership and adventure sports, employing the safest adventure technology to guide adventurers, business employees and young people beyond their recreational, mental, leadership and team-working boundaries.

Our Vision is to create a socio-economically profitable and an environmentally sustainable outdoor adventure culture in Ghana by 2040 that brings business employees together in globally competitive ways that face leadership and team challenges head-on.
