The 2020 Shai Hills Easter Biking and Abseil Adventure Festival at the Shai Hills Reserve starts off this year on Good Friday, April 10. The 21km mountain biking adventure begins at 08.00 in the morning at the Shai Hills park. Participants who require transportation to the park need to call or whatsapp 054-842-4903 or 020-454-8040 in advance and be present at the Accra Mall at 06.00 to join the bus.
After the press launch of the festival, mountain bikers will take on the main course-way of the Reserve biking among zebra, baboons, antelopes and many more wild life. Folks who do not know how to bike will be transported to the imposing Elephant Rock for their abseil adventures, a cool descent of the 30-metre face of Elephant Rock. Bikers will also abseil the rock-face when they arrive at the Rock. There will be lots to eat, drink and make merry at the party zone in front of Elephant Rock.
Easter Friday’s adventure will end at 5PM but folks who complete their adventure in time will be transported back to Accra if they opted for the transport service.
On Easter Monday, April 13, the Good Friday adventure cycle will be repeated, and adventurers who miss out on Good Friday can have their turn on Monday. Each day’s adventure costs 400-GHS for participants who opt for the full package, and 350-GHS for adventurers who turn up at the park.
