Kaya Tours Ghana over the May Day weekend holiday embarked on a two-day experiential trip to Keta, in the Volta Region.
Patrons were drawn from Kumasi and Accra totaling 25 persons for the getaway experience. Since every good domestic tourism product must be sustainable and beneficial to the host community, Kaya Tours ensured the engagement of local indigenous people in the service delivery.
On the first night of the tour, about 30 ‘Boborbor’ cultural troupe displayed performances amidst folktales by an elderly man who narrated the history and the emergence of Anlo and Ewe people in present day Anloga, Keta, Agbozume etc. along the beach with bonfire.
It was very refreshing as the patrons were treated to local cocktail drinks and treats such as Asana, Sobolo, Lamugin, Aduule, Nkate cake etc. The night experience along the white sandy beach of Keta betwixt with massage was enchanting.
On the second day, the revellers woke up to aerobics and beach games before breakfast.
The group visited Fort Prinzenstein built by Danish traders in 1784 for defensive purposes after the Sagbadre War against the Anlo Ewe and to keep the area safe from other colonial powers.
Keta has lots of awesome tourist attractions including the Woe lighthouse also known as Cape St. Paul Lighthouse on the beach that guides sailors. The group also enjoyed the fabulous views from the oldest lighthouse in the country making climbing it an interesting and somewhat daunting adventure.
Speaking to the media, CEO of Kaya Tours, Mr. Abeiku Aggrey Santana entreated traditional authorities, government and private stakeholders in tourism to come together and work for the interest of our country.
He stated that, tourism is private sector driven and as a result government must support tourism players with incentives to promote domestic tourism.
