Adventure Date: July 31-August 2, 2020          Price: 600-GHS

Let’s engage Lake Volta on this three-day holiday weekend kayaking expedition that will both challenge you physically and mentally, and provide a relaxing recreational opportunity on Survival Island.

The adventure will begin with pick-up from the Accra Mall at 08.00 in the morning. The 150-minute drive will include a brief stop for breakfast at Afienya until we arrive at the Asikuma forest. Adventurers will make their own navigation decisions given maps and compasses until they find Survival Cove, and that is where our famous kayak capsize drill will happen. Successful completion of the drill is what grants an Adventurer the right to traverse the open water of Lake Volta.


After a successful drill, Adventurers in pairs will take on the 2km expanse of water to get to Survival Island. That is where we will set up tents and hammocks and prepare for the first night of the Poseidon XVII Kayaking Expedition, the longest and the only series of adventure kayaking events in West Africa. The first night’s meal is yellow-fin tuna-flavoured Palava Sauce and boiled Yams. Weather conditions will determine what camp fire we build for the evening’s game night and poetry bar.


Saturday, August 1 is a day of rest and relaxation, and nature study. Survival Island hosts 60 species of birds and more than 12 major tree species, and adventurers will have to find, document and understand as many species as they can. There will be a brief visit to the Isle of Rocks where the Spear of Survival adventure TV series was shot.


Sunday, August 2 starts with some fun activities on the 14 trails of the island and culminates in a breakfast of fried yam and charcoal-grilled tilapia. After breakfast, the adventure team will engage the 3.6km expanse of the Lake from Survival Island to the small village of Labolabo. That’s where the adventure will end, and the van will transport adventurers back to Accra.


This adventure is easy, and prior outdoor adventure experiences are not required. The 600-GHS fee covers transport, food, water, use of relevant outdoor gear and equipment, guiding services and photography.


What to Pack
: A 20-litre backpack, a pair of good hiking shoes, outdoor walking sandals, a cap or hat, 2 water bottles, 3 sets of outdoor clothing, 1 sleeping bag or cover cloth, Wash kit (small towel, sponge and soap), toiletries, 1 bowl for meals, a can of insect repellent, personal medication, personal snacks, sunglasses and a small box of matchsticks.

Adventure Dates: May 1-3, 2020          Price: 600-GHS

Early in the morning of the May 1 holiday, at 07.00, a team of unapologetic mountaineering adventurers will leave the Accra Mall on a 4-hour drive to the Hohoe Plains, and to a village at the foot of the ranges named Nyangbo Kume. That team will move up a 650m mountain terrain to the Village of Dzogbefeme. The hike ascends from a 50m plain to that elevation in less than two or three hours, and for thrice the trouble because we’ll have our food, water, tents and other adventure gear strapped onto our backs. We’ll spend the night on Expedition Plateau, a spot that offers a spectacular view of the Amedzofe and Gemi mountains.


After breakfast the next day, adventurers will explore all of nature’s bounties in and around Dzogbefeme. This includes waterfalls and caves, and a visit to the Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary.

On Sunday, May 3, the final leg of the assault begins to Mt Gemi’s cross at Amedzofe, to a point that is 800m above seal level, and then complete the adventure with a visit to the beautiful Ote falls. We will then drive off the highlands through Ho, the Volta regional capital.

The pleasant drive to the Akaa waterfalls lasts an hour and a half until we arrive at the grassy plains of the Koforidua uplands.

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. 

Call 020-454-8040 for more information or book your adventure immediately.
