Picture this: You and your team have found yourselves in a forest with your backpacks containing outdoor living stuff. You also have a map and a compass. One of Africa’s leading outdoor experts comes over to give you a crash course in map reading and compass navigation. Afterwards you’re on your own. Will you and your team successfully take on the 3km hiking foray into the jungle of the Anum uplands?
When you do make it, it’s to a 20-metre cliff overlooking the world’s largest man-made Lake. West Africa’s leading adventure guides turn up to set up a system of ropes, harnesses and helmets. Your task as a team is to encourage each other to abseil the impregnable Discovery Rock into the boat waiting for you beneath. This is team work, mental resilience and leadership in one heart-stopping package. The rule is one: No one gets left behind. Will you still be a team?
Next we’ll take on the 7km stretch of waves and unpredictability from Discovery Rock to Survival Island in the gorge of Lake Volta, picnic and be refreshed on the island to a repertoire of culinary indulgences relaxing and bonding without a care for urban hustle. All this, in only one day or on an overnight adventure.
Overnight kayaking expeditions on Survival Island involve sleeping in tents or hammocks, cooking food near camp fires, bird-watching and tilapia grilling under a folklore, drumming and dancing night sky.
