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.

1,050-metres. That’s the highest we will go after we have climbed Afadjato and crossed the invisible border between Ghana’s eastern mountain ranges and the Togolese Republic. Nerves of steel, a high tolerance for uncertainty and adversity, and enduring stamina are required for this overnight assault of Afadjato, Ghana’s highest free-standing mountain at 885m.

A Togolese highlands invasion continues from the top of Afadjato across the invisible boundary into the western Plateau region of the Togolese Republic. By the time we arrive at Wli Todzi on the Ghanaian side of the highlands, we would have completed a tough 7-hour or more journey across the highest mountains in Ghana’s highland border with Togo.

Another 4 hours will mark the descent from Wli Todzi to the upper and lower trails of the Wli waterfalls area. A rain-gouged chimney is the butt-dragging trail down the steep range into the refreshing waters of the lower Wli falls. Splashing around in the falls and touching the wall behind the curtain is the phenomenon that makes the gruelling adventure worth it.

We will leave the Accra Mall on Friday, November 1 at 5PM and head out to the foot of the Afadjato Highlands and return before dark on Sunday, November 3.

Price: 599-GHS

Mountaineering, Team-building, Vacations
Here’s the scenario: You and your team will have a map and a compass, and will be directed to navigate your way through the rocky ravine of the Krobo Hills known to the locals as Klowem (pronounced klo-yom) to the highest outcrop on the plateau.

There will be two main difficulties: (1) Your team has to translate information correctly from the map to the ground and navigate with a compass, and (2) You will have to work as an efficient team and get to Hieowayo (the outcrop in question) together. Any team that gets to the top as an inefficient team will lose vital points.

Once teams arrive at Station Hieowayo, each team will have to strap into helmets, harnesses and safety gear, stand at the edge of the granite rock, lean back and abseil (rappel) the precipitous Hieowayo on ropes as thick as a man’s middle finger within the time allotted. Teams that do not get all their members to abseil in the time allotted will lose vital points as well.

The winning team will be the team that navigates correctly and works efficiently, while keeping themselves motivated to abseil within time.

What to Wear & Pack:

1. 1 Small Backpack (to carry your water, drinks and plastic waste)
2. T-shirt & pants or shorts (no skirts, and certainly no miniskirts)
3. Good outdoor walking shoes (tough enough to survive mean rocks)
4. A cap or hat 
5. Sunglasses & sun cream

Klowem adventures cost 399-GHS and covers return transport, food, water, non-alcoholic refreshments, park entry and usage fees, use of all abseiling equipment, guiding services, and an amazing adventure.

Are you a proficient or expert mountain bike rider? Do you have what it takes to bike through rugged terrain, survive the spectatorship of herds of antelope and zebra, and endure the cheering of many troops of baboons?

Then join us if you please, every day except Saturdays, on a 21km biking and abseil adventure at the Shai Hills Resource Reserve. While you engage the challenging terrain, your little ones can climb up the Mogo Rock, strap into world-class equipment and abseil the 66-ft rockface into unapologetic greatness with our child-friendly Rangers.

An adventure ticket costs 399-GHS for adults and ¢200-GHS for children, and the fees and cover for return transport, food, water, non-alcoholic refreshments, park entry and usage fees, use of all biking and abseiling equipment, guiding services, and an amazing adventure.

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.

Ready for your first Island Team-Kayaking Expedition?

So are we.

Day-out kayaking adventures cost 499-GHS and overnight expeditions cost 599-GHS. Call 020-454-8040 for more information or book your adventure immediately.
