1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

I really really had a very great time at the lodge. The place itself is just paradise and I find it very difficult to say what I liked best about it! But as I am asked to name the most memorable part of my holiday, I would say that the Volta river tour in a small wooden boat and watching a local shaman event were the highlights of my stay.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

As Dougal and his team are great hosts, you really do not need to worry about too many things. They even offer a free ride from Accra (a hired taxi, safe driving) to Dzita and also back to central Accra or even directly to the airport. In your nicely cool room you will find a comfortable bed with a mosquito net, a lamp, some sockets, a fan, some storage for your belongings, a big towel, and some liquid soap. As Dzita is pretty small and has no cash machine, it might be a good idea to bring some cash and enough credit for your mobile phone. Except for that you only need some repellent, sunscreen, a torch (ideally a headlamp) and all your personal travel gear.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, totally! It is a place for locals AND tourists. In the common area you can mingle with locals (only the area with the dorms etc. is accessible for residents only) and you can ask them directly how they feel about tourism in their area. :-) Another guest and I also helped building a compost toilet in the village, we had a chance to talk to some fishermen, and we even helped them pulling in their nets. It is simply wonderful that as a lodger you are not just a regular tourist but part of the whole community.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I loved it! I really loved it! It was my first time on the African continent (I had travelled to developing countries in Asia and South America before though)and I will definitely come back! I have already told my family and friends about it and we are thinking about going there together next year. I am so glad that I had found out about this place through this website. Love it!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Meeting the people in Dzita village and going to the Shamanic ceremony at Mami Rasta's on a Friday.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take plenty of insect repellent.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes all three very much so.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The best holiday I've ever been on! Great for solo travellers. I was looked after the whole way from the airport to Dzita and back again. Having my own private guide was brilliant and all the activities were amazing. I experienced the real Ghana. And Hugh was an impeccable host.
