Getaway trip by Kaya Tours Ghana Limited in partnership with Koppan Hospitality and Voyages Afriq presented, the extra ordinary experiential fun trip from Accra to Keta and Lomé, Togo which set off by 3pm on Friday 28th June, 2019 from the Accra Tourist Information Centre.

The drive to Keta is just about 2.5 hours if not the traffic on this particular stretch between Tema, Kpone and Dawhenya. Arriving at the gorgeous Aborigines beach resort in Keta, the visitors were ushered to the beach front with exciting borborbor and Agbadja songs and dance, served with fresh coconut juice.

The Managing Director of Kaya Tours Ghana Limited and Koppan Hospitality, Mr. Abeiku Aggrey Santana and Mr. Edwin Koranteng respectively welcomed the guests to the vibrant beach atmosphere amidst bonfire, hot grills, good music tunes from Feli Nuna also kept the visitors smiling and energized for hours while others interacted on sips of local drinks by

On Saturday, 29th June, 2019, the 45 visitors drawn from Banks, FMCG companies, Business Developers, Entrepreneurs and an African American woke-up to morning aerobics under the instruction of a retired army officer.

The breeze from the sea, the sights and sounds of the waves made the morning fitness easy for an over 60 year old Black American. The breakfast was a good selection of dishes including kenkey and hot pepper, Aboolo, waakye, porridge and some continental beverage.

Keta means ‘head of the sand’ located in the Volta Region founded by the two sons of Amega, Akaga and Awanyado. Until 1963, Keta was the capital of the Volta Region before the sea storms washed away the ancient town. Keta promises dauntless immersions in nature, adventure and history. The charm of the land between the sea and lagoon is in its contemplative beauty.

The first stop on the itinerary was Fort Prinzenstein built by the Danes in 1784. This attraction served as a transit point for enslaved people from places including Togo, Dahomey and Accra before they were shipped to the Americas. The fort was used as a prison until it was damaged by a storm in 1980. Today, the ruins of the fort managed by the Ghana Museums and Monuments Board has dungeons, chains, shackles, stools, rusting cookware and other relics.

Our next stop was the Cape St Paul lighthouse in Woe, built in 1802. This was an adventure not for the faint heart. The 120 meters staircase up the lighthouse feels narrow with every step managed by the Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority. However, the visitors were rewarded with a fantastic tour guide and a blast of fresh air overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, panoramic view of the land, the beach and the houses dotting the scenery. Lunch was served at a local chop Bar ‘’Chill Out’’

Keta is a rejuvenated escape to add to any domestic tour itinerary. The participant was yearning for more experience and hence the Intercity Bus departed for Lomé/ Togo through the Afloa boarder. After almost an hour of immigration boarder formalities, officials of the Ghana Immigration Service escorted the group to the French side of the boarder.

The fun bus drove through the principal streets of Lomé to Togo’s Independence Avenue and stopped at a local bar and supermarket for refreshment. Le Samedi Soir est toujrurs anime, meaning Saturday night is always buzzing. The Bus finally stopped at Boulevard Du Mono near the Minstere De la Securite where the young adults partied at ‘’Before & After’’ night club. The group returned to Keta around 2:00am on Sunday. The extra ordinary fun experiential trip ended with rewards to almost every participant.

The next fun trip is in August and September 2019, which will take place in Mole National Park and Axim – Abidjan respectivelyTHE EXTRAODINARY REJUVENTED KETA-LOME FUN TRIP
