We will leave the Accra Mall at 07.00 on Easter Friday, drive 3 hours to the Anum township, pick up our maps and compasses and attempt to navigate like the old explorers used to do – without GPS and phones. The one-hour jungle hike should take successful family-teams to Discovery Rock, where everyone will abseil the 20m rock and kayak the total 7km expanse of Lake Volta to Survival Island. We’ll camp on the island in tents and hammocks and do our own cooking.
Saturday is a rest day. We will explore nature, picnic with local snacks, explore the smaller islands closer to Survival Island and have a lot of fun.
We’ll have yam chips and grilled tilapia on Sunday before we kayak 2km to survival beach for the return trip to Accra.
The adventure costs 599 Ghana Cedis for adults, and 299 Ghana Cedis for children less than 16. The fees cover for return transport, food, water, use of relevant outdoor gear and equipment, guiding services and photography. You are expected to present with the following personal kit: 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 or thick blanket, wash kit – small towel, sponge and soap, toiletries, a plate or bowl for meals, a tube of insect repellent, and a book of matchsticks. It will almost certainly rain on the expedition so a raincoat is recommended. Remember to waterproof your backpack when packing, with a bin liner.
