" /> Family Adventures – BraveHearts Expeditions
Holidays, Vacations
January 7, 2020 is Ghana’s Constitution Day holiday. Let’s take the Year of Return activities to a whole new level on this first-ever holiday in honour of Ghana’s republican constitution by visiting the iconic Cape Coast Castle, completing a tour, and abseiling off its ancient battlements to the beach at the ocean below. This abseil comes to also honour the 400-year memory of our ancestors and will be a testimony to the mental fortitude required to end enslavement in all its forms – physical, mental, and so forth.

Reporting time at the Accra Mall Police Post is 5.45AM and departure to Cape Coast is at 6AM sharp.

Adventure Costs: 400-GHS (includes return transport, food and refreshments, use of abseil equipment, guiding services, fees to the Castle and photography).

What to Pack: A small backpack, outdoor walking shoes or sandals, a hat or cap, sun cream, sun glasses and insect repellent.

Payments can be made to MTN MoMo Number 054-842-4903 which bears the name “BraveHearts Expeditions”. Call the same number for any questions or concerns.


Holidays, Mountaineering, Tropical Islands, Vacations
The story really is the same: We go through terrible traffic and noise each Christmas season in Ghana, and end up getting stressed about the excess pocket costs. Other than the visit of family, it does end up getting boring, and we’d like to help you do something about it.

This year’s season should be different.  We are happy to propose a yo-ho-ho Christmas expedition to Survival Island, and we invite the whole family (parents and children alike) to present on this final kayaking expedition of the 2019 adventure season. Folks are invited to present with santa clause, elf and special costumes for costume night on Survival Island on Saturday, December 25.

We’ll leave the Police Post of the Accra Mall at 6PM sharp 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 on a night hike on the 24th, and getting to Survival Island by motor powered boat. We’ll set up our camping tents and hammocks under the stars and spend the first night. 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 till December 26 when we all will kayak the 3.5km expanse of Lake Volta and end an amazing adventure year in style. 

Adventure dates: December 24-26, 2019.
Price: 600-GHS for Adults, & 300-GHS for Children.
Departure location: Accra Mall Car Park
Departure time: 6.00PM

Tropical Islands, Vacations, Weekend Tours
We’ll leave the Accra Mall at 7AM on November 23, 2019 and drive to Asikuma in the Eastern region where we will access the Anyansu forest and hike through its undulating hills. We’ll abseil a little cliff, pick up our kayaks and practice the famous kayak capsize drills before we take on the waves of Lake Volta to Survival Island.

The rest of the weekend will be spent camping, exploring and living the life of modern-day Explorers on Survival Island. Sunday will have us engage the Wall and the Spider Web on the island before we grill fresh tilapia and fry yam, after which we’ll kayak back to shore for the return drive to Accra.

Mountaineering, Weekend Tours
This December 1, 2019 hiking and abseil adventure begins at the foot of the Manya Krobo hills. A 1.6km assault will get everyone’s heart pumping until we get to the highest peak on that side of the outcrops. We will have to shinny down the rockface in order to get to the 40m Katanga Rock. Our fearless modern-day Explorers will strap into climbing gear and equipment, abseil the face of the rock and discover the Greatness within them. The final onslaught will be an easy descent to the Akuse plains for the celebratory photos and bonding time.
