Rolling hills and the lake offers you a very serene environment to relax.Road leading to the volta view hotel is pleasant to ply amid the lush green tropical vegetation.

A visit to the Akosombo hydropower plant is an education. Our guide was quite good and she made a good impression on our party of seven. The simple but intricate process of harvesting water from the Volta Lake and purifying it was exciting to see. The infrastructure looks massive but well maintained. Anyone afraid of heights shouldn't go near the edges at the very top. I salute the foresight of the Kwame Nkrumah government in constructing such a great project.

It's better to book the ⛵ at Sajuna if you're only there for a cruise as their prices are cheaper. If there are other things like having fun and you're willing to pay extra then royal senchi.
There's less fun if you're alone but if it's a group then good for you. Perfect place for couple 💑

The most southern Lake Volta region: Apokaime, Atimpoku and Akosombo. Apokaime and Atimpoku for the natural beauty of the river Volta, plenty of water acivities especially in Atimpoku. Akosombo for the dam responsible for creating one of largest artificial lakes in the world.

The tour guide was perfect! He had so many interesting facts about the region going back well before the construction of the dam. I enjoyed the views and the knowledge received. I recommend this tour.

We visited only the dam and were not able to enter the Hydro plant. Be aware that tickets and have to be purchased at an office in town about 3 km for the entrance. The tour start at this office. You can enter the dam area with your own vehicle and guide. Or hire a car at reasonable fare and guide at the office. Taxis are not allowed to enter the dam area. I liked the tour and I recommend it, also if enginering is not your favourite subject.

Might sound weird, but in one way this was almost the highlight of going to Ghana for me, I'm a bit of a sad geek to be perfectly honest, so all the techy stuff fascinates me.

We had a brilliant guide, really enthusiastic and committed, and she explained how it all worked in a way that everybody could understand.

The way that it was built, with all the engineering challenges, as well as the social impacts of relocating people in the valley behind the dam which was to be flooded were all explained, as well as the challenges that climate change has brought in terms of water level reduction making it difficult forthis station to provide power for Ghana as well as neighboring Togo and Burkino Faso.

It's a fair way away from Accra, but well worth the trip, as it's a key piece of keeping the country running.

It's also a very cheap tour, and doesn't charge a 500% mark-up for non-Ghanaian citizens, unlike a number of other places we visited there.

Lastly, there are some fantastic views to be had, across the resovoir, and south down the Volta river valley.

Definitely worth a visit..

The hydro plant is quite impressive and what a look when you are in Akosombo. The area is picturesque and the dam and the lake, which is the largest man made lake by surface area is beautiful, especially if you get to enjoy a cruise on it.
