Volunteers that opt for the adventure travel have a lot to experience to enjoy. After a week of volunteering a volunteer embarks on the week tour country wide. Thus a volunteer spending two weeks will work for a week and tour for the remaining one week.
The adventure travel has a maximum duration of one week. Regions to be visited are Ashanti, Central, Volta, Easter regions and could be extended up north into the Northern region.
In the Ashanti region of Ghana,the volunteer will have the opportunity to visit the Manhyia Palace Museum where he will see the sculptures representing the entire dynasty of the Ashanti Kingdom from the days of Great Kings like Osei Kwadwo, Opoku Ware, Osei Tutu to the present Asantehene (Ashanti King) an interesting story of the great Ashanti kingdom will be told by the guide. The historic city of Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Kingdom remains a very important city to this day. Much will be said about Okomfo Anokye, the spiritual leader of the Ashanti kingdom in the days of King Osei Tutu I. Recent scientific research concludes that Lake Bosumtwi the only natural lake was formed by a meteorite that hit the earth.
In the Central region,the peak of the adventure happens at the Kukum National Park where the excitement of the Canopy Walkway present a greater adventure than expected. Stretching over a hanging distance of 400 meters and lifted to an altitude of over 40 meters you can't wait for your turn of this experience as the walkway dangles in mid-air. Yet a more educative adventure awaits the visitors at the Cape Coast Castle. The evidence of the slave trade ever taken place on the soils of Africa-the dungeons,"The Door Of no Return". Over 100 million Africans were sent through that door to the Americas.The evidence are there for you to see and more exciting history as told by the Castle guide.

River Volta,the largest man made lake in the world and the source of 60% of Ghana's energy needs. After touring nationwide, most volunteers say Volta is the most beautiful region in Ghana.
The adventure continues in the Eastern Region of Ghana.Ghana was once a world leading exporter of cocoa and still ranks second in the world today. It is a mouth watering experience to see the cocoa tree and how it has developed over the years in an effort to improve the flavour, quality and usages. All this can be learnt at the Cocoa Research Institute at Akropong. A continuation of the learning process extents into herbal development and treatments of diseases at the Mampong Center for Scientific Research into plant Medicine. The volunteer's exploration ventures him into some of the remarkable waterfalls in Ghana. This is the Akaa falls where the river disappears into the rocks and emerges out with a splendid split of three falls from above the rocks. It is a beautiful sight to watch.
Now we go up north to the Northern region of Ghana where the visitor visits the Paga crocodile pond. This is a legend foretold of the inhabitants of Paga.
