Our Kayaking Options

lacustrine kayaking

Kayaking is the main adventure you will engage in after you complete check-in formalities at the Survival Island reception. The capsize drill that will ensue is our mandatory safety protocol for our adventures on Lake Volta. The drill is also your pass through the 2km lacustrine foray to Survival Island where at least three other adventure disciplines will challenge everything you believe you know about yourself.

overhang abseil

The abseil off the Overhang Cliff in Lake Volta is a heart-thumping 20-metre drop to a boat underneath the cliff. After transferring into the kayaks and the photoshoot, the lacustrine foray begins until arrival at Survival Island 2.5km across the Lake, unless abseiling was all you signed up for, in which case a short boat ride will return you to the Survival Island reception at the shore.

overnight camping

Our overnight camping adventure option includes a hike through the hills of the Asikuma Forest to the Overhang Cliff for an abseil with a spectacular view of the Volta Lake. After transfering into kayaks for the mandatory capsize drill, the 3km lacustrine foray to Survival Island will begin. The tented camp and lodge have all an avid adventurer needs, and the adventure will not end until the next day when the full gauntlet of adventure offerings are exhausted on Survival Island.

Adventurer Reviews

  • I was blown away by the quality of Ghanaian meals we prepared on our overnight adventure. Yam and palava sauce was my favourite and I loved that there were vegan options for my daughter.

  • The Rangers really know their stuff. I loved their no-nonsense attention to the safety of all of us, and they made even the capsize drill feel like a lot of fun! I'm definitely coming back with my family.

The Location

Survival Island is located 8km from the Asikuma Tilapia Market on the Accra-Ho Road. One turns to the left at the market from the Juapong-Ho Road, or right at the same market from the Ho-Juapong Road. Look out for our markers. We are two-and-a-half-hour drive from Ghana’s capital, Accra. Our location in the third largest man-made lake in the world makes us the ideal for lacustrine kayaking adventures in Ghana.
