From Easter Friday, April 19 till Sunday, April 21, families will hike through the Anum forest, abseil off the Discovery Rock, kayak to, camp on, and live the life of modern-day Explorers on Survival Island in the gorge of Lake Volta on this first open kayaking expedition of the 2019 adventure season.

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.

Mountaineering, Weekend Tours
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.

In order to survive this adventure, you need:

  • A 20-litre backpack
  • A pair of good hiking boots
  • Outdoor walking sandals
  • A cap or hat
  • 3 water bottles
  • 3 sets of outdoor clothing
  • 1 sleeping bag or thick blanket
  • Wash kit – small towel, spong and soap
  • 1 bowl for meals
  • A can of insect repellent
  • A book of matchsticks

Team-building, Tropical Islands, Vacations, Weekend Tours

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.
