    Experience is not required. We are open to teach and learn from each other. We have just gotten some plots of land of our own apart from the fairly leased land we have been working on and we need help in different areas because we are at the very early stages of a large project and would love to share our excitement and experimentation with others. Our joy is to build a new sustainable future for humanity. Our passion for nature is very amazing and we cant't deny the radiant beauty of nature that induces us to fall deeply in love with the uniqueness it offers in different seasons, the nature of the fields, the beautiful landscapes, and the horizon mountains are indeed beautiful to embrace and preserve. We're here because we absolutely love what we do, and we hope to share this with you.

    Getting around Volta Region, Ghana By bus
    The Volta Region is best accessed by road. STC, the national bus network of Ghana, runs buses every day (except Sunday) from Accra to Ho. These buses are air conditioned, run on schedule and are efficient and quick. STC buses depart from their own stations where tourists can book tickets in advance so that they are assured of a seat.
    Metro-Mass buses, which can be identified by their orange colour, also run buses from Accra to Ho, Hohoe and Kapando as well as smaller localities in the Volta Region. They operate out of tro-tro stations and are cheaper than STC buses, though they charge an additional fee for luggage.

    By taxi
    Tourists can hire either shared taxis or drop taxis to reach Ho, Hohoe and Kpando. Shared taxis are less expensive. However, these taxis do not start till the drivers have taken on as many passengers as they can, so that the taxi gets a bit cramped and you may reach your destination a bit later because the taxis stop frequently to drop passengers.
    Drop taxis are a more comfortable way of getting to Volta, although they may be more expensive. Tourists are assured of a comfortable drive and a reasonable degree of punctuality. However, do negotiate and fix the fare before you start, as drivers do try to earn that extra bit, especially from tourists.

    By car
    The best way to reach the Volta Region is to hire a car from Accra. This journey takes at least four hours. Even though the roads outside Accra are, sometimes, merely dirt tracks, hiring a car does provide a certain flexibility and comfort.
    By tro-tro and mini vans
    Tourists can also reach the Volta Region by tro-tro or minivan. This also provides an opportunity to drive through local villages. The journey from Accra to Ho by minivan takes about two hours. Tro-tros are relatively cheap, the only disadvantage being that they have no fixed schedule and tend to squeeze in too many passengers.

    Getting around Volta
    Tro-tros, minivans and cars are the most preferred modes of Volta transportation for getting around the Volta Region. While there are buses that ply in this region, many tourist attractions here involve trekking and take some time. It may not always be possible to synchronize your timings with those of the bus. Tro-tros and taxis are transport in Volta found everywhere and are relatively cheap.
    Tourists can also get think of getting around Volta by ferry. There are many cruises from Akosombo and other places along the coast to Lake Volta and boat operators are only too happy to ferry tourists around for that extra tip or ‘dash’.
    The Ghana and Volta transport system is not very organised and efforts are underway to streamline transportation systems. In the meanwhile, indigenous modes of Volta transport like ferries, cruise boats and tro-tros fill in the gaps adequately.
