A stay at Safari Lodge will allow you to experience nature, village life, peace and tranquility BUT be just 25 minutes drive from bustling central Accra. The lodge is a 'Back to Nature' type of place. For this reason we do not have noisy pollution generators but rather solar lights for when there are power cuts and due to the high altitude of the property it is cool especially at night so there is no air-con as not really necessary. There is no aircon in the house.
Wake up early morning to birdsong and lush mountains as you peep through your curtains. After breakfast on the terrace watching the sun rise over the hills descend down the steep hills to bustling, hot and dusty Accra. By evening return to the cool tranquility of Safari lodge. You will literally feel the air freshen and cool as you once again ascend the steep slopes while watching the twinkling lights of Accra below. One advantage of this cool climate is there are very few mosquitoes at Safari Lodge. So for health reasons alone this is a real plus. As in most of Ghana water pressure is not always very high so the water does not gush out of the taps but comes through more gently. Water has to be used more carefully than in the western countries. Internet modems are on a pay as you go basis and can be loaded up for just a few dollars. The apartment has two bedrooms an adjoining bathroom, kitchen, dining area and living room and an additional separate toilet. It has a large terraces where you can dine al fresco or just sit sipping your favourite drink watching the sun rise or sink over the mountains. The apartments is completely self contained within its own gardens. The gardens are full of fruit trees, papaya, tangerine, lemon, lime, guava and banana and advocate. Bed linen is provided but not towels or soap/toothpaste.
Safari Logde is a place of natural simplicity. We have solar lights and due to its high altitude the weather at Safari Lodge can be quite cool, especially at night so that air-conditioners are not necessary. We are proud of our green approach to life in and around the lodge.
Interaction with guests
There is a security man/gardener/housekeeper who lives on the premises with his wife and family. He will welcome you to the lodge and give you the key and show you around. If you have any questions he will always be there to help but he will not intrude and you will be able to live in your self-contained apartment with garden without having to interact with anyone. If you require a maid or cleaning service this can be negotiated directly with the housekeeper and his wife but payment must be made for this.
Other things to note
Safari Lodge is great if you would like to explore the local areas and visit local Ghanaian villages. A guide will take you around pointing out local flora and fauna and you can go either on foot or mountain bike. Longer hikes and rides over several days can also be arranged. You can also take hikes to a lovely local waterfall. There are often local festivals around the area.
Not to make excessive noise which will disturb other guests.
