Adomi Bridge

The Eastern Region of Ghana blends dramatic landscapes, historic relics and traditional cultures. Located in Atimpoku, the iconic Adomi Bridge, originally called the Volta Bridge, is the first permanent bridge to span Volta River, which drains southwards into the Gulf of Guinea, linking the Eastern, Oti and the Volta Regions. In 1957, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president, commissioned the crescent-shaped arch bridge, which is 334 m long. Today, it remains Ghana’s longest suspension bridge which sits atop of the Lake Volta, the third largest man-made reservoir in the world.

Enjoy scenic views of the river, mountain ranges and local street food from the indigenes. If you are looking for a little more adventure, experience riverine island adventures and kayak along the river, paddle in crafted wooden canoes or enjoy the thrill of the breeze with speed boat rides.

Akosombo Dam

When Dr. Kwame Nkrumah dreamed of Ghana’s independence in 1957, the modernisation of the nation through industrialisation and infrastructural investments played a central role. Through the Volta River Project, originally designed in the 1920s and reshaped by the country’s founding leader, the Akosombo Dam came to fruition. This dam produces hydroelectric power for Ghana and other West African countries, including Togo and Benin.

Embark on this historic journey in the east that led to the creation of the 400 m long Lake Volta, the largest man-made lake in the world by surface area covering 8,502 sq m, and the world’s third largest man-made lake by volume and discover the great mind of Ghana’s first president.
