This 5 night journey is an opportunity to discover one of the serene parts of Ghana. The drive takes you through outstandingly lush green landscapes, lakes, lagoons, mountains, waterfalls and beautiful untamed sandy beaches and friendly people.
Day 1- From Accra, we head to Akosombo which is home to the World’s second-largest artificial lake. You’ll be taken on a guided tour of the Dam before stopping for (buffet or x course) lunch at the Volta Hotel with the stunning views overlooking the town. After lunch, get you cameras ready for a quick stop over the Akosombo bridge, where you’ll be captivated by the breath-taking views of the Lake Volta and surrounding mountains.
We continue inland 3hours 30mins to Hohoe, passing through sleepy hamlets, towns and villages. Check-in to the hotel or similar in Hohoe and relax for the evening.
Day 2- Woezor, Welcome to Hohoe. Our first stop is to the Wli Water falls
Ghana's tallest waterfalls, the Wli (pronounced 'vlee') falls is surrounded by a beautiful lush green rolling hills, forests and bubbling streams. If you fancy a hike up the lower falls, you'll be accompanied by a guide. It approximately 40mins but take care as it's a steep climb, so we'd recommend taking appropriate hiking footwear.
The Next port of call is the Twin towns- Tafi Atome for the Monkey sanctuary and Tafi Abuipe the Kente weaving village.
The best time to view the monkeys roaming the village are early mornings and late afternoons for their feed.
In the Tafi Abuipe cultural centre, you can visit the weaving room, go on a walkabout of the village and possibly have Kente weaving masterclass. The Kente from the Volta region is really great value for money so be sure to bag some bargains.
Fuel up with lunch before making our way through HO the regional capital of the Volta Region and gateway to Mount Afadjato, the highest mountain in Ghana.
Check- in at the the hotel or guest house for your overnight stay.
Day3 - After breakfast, we kick start the day with an adventure climb to Mount Afadjato. Standing at 885 metres, the climb is well worth the spectacular view which awaits you. duration approx. 2hrs. Be sure to drink plenty of water and lace up your hiking boots.
It's quiet time back on the road to Keta, which is a 4 hour journey.
Check-in to the hotel or guest house in Keta.
Day4- Visit the ruins of Fort Prinzenstein, which is only 1 of 3 forts in the east of Ghana. Built in the 17th century by the Dutch who named it Singelenburgh, it was then rebuilt in 1784 and renamed by the Danes who then sold it to the British in 1850. This fort sure has some international flavour! You'll have time to take a walk around the ruins and the nearby town area. Or maybe wander down to the coast and fishing village to watch the fishermen bring in the catch of the day.
We then take a 50min drive to Dzita (pronounced Zita) where you’ll spend the afternoon at the ‘Meet me there Africa home lodge’. This tranquil coastal setting will give you a taste of an authentic African living.- is there more we could add here?
The Next stop is Ada where you’ll check into your hotel for an overnight stay.
Day5- Today, you’ll be visiting the Ada Estuary, this is where the Volta River meets the Atlantic Ocean. The Estuary is home to mangroves and Palm-lined beaches.
After lunch at the Aqua Safari, we drive back to Accra for an early evening arrival.
