Seeking  thrills and adrenaline pumping experiences? Let's explore these 10(ten) amazing fun packed activities right here in Ghana that’s  worth your money,time and effort. Be sure to try  these activities and you would be coming back for more... 


Unlike our  beautiful memorable Ghanaian games and activities like ‘alikoto’, ‘oware’, ‘chaskele’ and our most loved game,  football, paintball brings a new twist to games in Ghana.Paintball is among the  first of its kind to be introduced to people of different  gender, ages, backgrounds and  lifestyles. 

This competitive  outdoor or sometimes indoor  sport  gives teams, friends, and family the  excitement of playing together  in a game where opponents hit each other (fire!!!) with paint dye or  rubber shot balls. The team that makes the most hits to its opponent wins the game!How cool can that get, you just aim, shoot and win!

In Ghana, this exciting game usually takes place in an outdoor setting where you get to indulge with  nature while having fun . For a constant weekend experience with the Adventoure Groupe  visit the Efua Sutherland Park opposite the National Theatre of Ghana. Well….if you are anyday adventurous  junkie like  me, you  may  want to visit the Alpha Paintball Gh, Battlefield Paint Ghana, Doom Paintball or the War Games Paintball Accra for your everyday experience. 

The Olympus wall climb

 Do you have the urge to always be  at the  top and to see the world from a bird’s view?


I have found the best activity for you...! Stamina- check!, fitness- check!  and definitely skills-check! are needed to complete this fun-filled climb.

The race is certainly not for the swift, you just have to make that move . Step- by- Step with  a harness strapped on you, you are left with your faith  to aim for the top of the wall. The winner is declared as the first to  get to the top of the wall  . The best reward of this activity is the ‘view from the top’ that you could never trade for anything . To experience Olympus wall climbing  in Ghana, visit Mabbina Park  in Akosombo for an unforgettable experience . Can't wait to see you at the top!  


Do you remember the nursery rhyme ‘Roll, roll, roll your boat…? Guess what? You get the chance to relive your childhood again but this time around you physically get to act upon the words of the rhyme.This  fun activity involves moving through water in a small water vessel with the aid of a double-bladed paddle. 

For that memorable  kayaking experience ,here  are some top spots in Ghana:Akosombo- Where you can paddle across the Volta Lake , Ada- You get to move across the estuary as well as visit the crocodile Island all in one and finally explore paddling in the Lake Bosomtwe in the Ashanti Region and Keta in the Volta Region.

Abseiling the Adomi Bridge

Are you ready for  a nerve wracking experience? This activity is worth every bit of your precious time and  should certainly make it on your bucket list. The Adomi  Bridge is the first permanent bridge built across the Volta River at Atimpoku in Ghana with a beautiful arc-like striking look.

Over the years, users of the bridge have found exciting ways to use the bridge for adventure. Adventure junkies abseil off the iconic Adomi Bridge at an intense 25-metre drop to a boat underneath the suspension bridge.Oooohhhh, that’s scary , yet fun to experience. Try it and you will thank  me later. This activity  is currently organised by the Trident / Brave Hearts  group in Akosombo.

Quad Biking

Do you have a large family or have friends that are up for a life changing  experience? Quad Biking is  definitely worth the hype and money.
