A major concern of the Ghana Mountaineers is to introduce children to nature, hiking and outdoor activities. To achieve this, we organize regular activities and hikes specifically tailored for the capabilities and needs of children.
Finally, we want to raise the awareness for the necessity to respect and to protect nature and the environment in Ghana.
Ghana Mountaineers are active in Ghana since the early 1990s. We started off as a small group of expats, mainly from Switzerland and Germany, used to an active outdoor lifestyle and suddenly confronted with big city life in Accra and very limited possibilities to be active in nature.
But not for long.
We discovered the beautiful landscapes and nature that Ghana offers and we were happy to explore. Since then we have hiked and climbed, we swam and rowed, we sweated and suffered, we explored trails and non-trails all over Ghana and have learned to appreciate the possibilities this country offers for active, adventurous people. We also have learned that - like everywhere - nature can be quite unforgiving and learned our lessons.
The size and membership of the group has changed over the years and the interest in our activities grew steadily. Finally the core members of the group decided to take this to the next level and we are now happy to offer our services as a professional and registered tour company in Ghana.
And as in the early 1990s, our strong believe is that it is not the summit that counts, but the group and the hike.
Don't be betrayed by destinations. The Beauty is in the Walking.
