Our house is on top of a mountain overlooking Accra but less than 25 min drive to centre.. good place to keep away from crowds and viruses.
If you want natural beauty, an African experience, breathtaking views AND have big city on your doorstep? Then Safari Lodge is for you. Its mountaintop setting + cool climate is less than 25 mins drive from central (Accra Mall) of Accra. Very good for families.

The space
'...this place is absolutely beautiful..'

,'what an outstanding stay with such a serene view'

'... we felt welcomed and cared for at all times'..
'there are hardly any mosquitos..'.

..'I am thrilled I found this house.. if your going to Accra stay here you won't regret it'.

..'opening the balcony every morning to the breathtaking views of Aburi is just stunning'..

..' this place is a hidden gem that should not be missed'.....'

These are some of the descriptions of the place left by happy guests..

Safari lodge is a 'back to nature' type place. The most stunning feature is our wide open terraces where you can sit eating and drinking al fresco while admiring the incredible views of Accra below. At night it's almost mosquito free so for heath reasons a big plus.

The lodge is a 'Back to Nature' type of place. If you want 24 hour mod cons, and cannot cope with occasionally having to have an african bucket shower or occasional power outages which are a normal part of life in Africa and many developing countries. PLEASE DO NOT COME TO OUR HOUSE.
We welcome people who can understand that living in Africa does not mean 24 hour/mod con 1st world style amenities. We have hot water, fully fitted new IKEA kitchen with microwave and all cooking utensils BUT as in all of Africa we can have problems with water and electricity at times.

For this reason we do not have noisy pollution generators but rather solar lights for when there are power cuts and due to the high altitude of the property it is cool especially at night so there is no air-con as not really necessary. There is no aircon in the house.
Wake up early morning to birdsong and lush mountains as you peep through your curtains. After breakfast on the terrace watching the sun rise over the hills descend down the steep hills to bustling, hot and dusty Accra. By evening return to the cool tranquility of Safari lodge. You will literally feel the air freshen and cool as you once again ascend the steep slopes while watching the twinkling lights of Accra below. One advantage of this cool climate is there are very few mosquitoes at Safari Lodge. So for health reasons alone this is a real plus. As in most of Ghana water pressure is not always very high so the water does not gush out of the taps but comes through more gently. Water has to be used more carefully than in the western countries. Internet modems and are on a pay as you go basis and can be loaded up for just a few dollars. Cleaning is not included but you can negotiate him or his wife to clean your flat and wash and dry your clothes for a small fee. The apartment has two bedrooms an adjoining bathroom, kitchen, dining area and living room and an additional separate toilet. It has a large terraces where you can dine al fresco or just sit sipping your favourite drink watching the sun rise over the mountains. The apartments is completely self contained within its own gardens.

This is the BEST PLACE FOR FAMILIES as plenty of space to play around.
The gardens are full of fruit trees, papaya, tangerine, lemon, lime, guava and banana and advocate. Bed linen and towels are provided.
We are a back to nature type of place not a mod cons top notch first world outfit.. at times there are water shortages as in much of Ghana and you may have to bath in an african bucket shower.. but hey that is what travelling is all about... live like the locals.. if you feel you can't adapt to the african way...don't come to our place ....

Guest access
Safari Logde is a place of natural simplicity. We have solar lights and due to its high altitude the weather at Safari Lodge can be quite cool, especially at night so that air-conditioners are not necessary. We are proud of our green approach to life in and around the lodge.

Other things to note
Safari Lodge is great if you would like to explore the local areas and visit local Ghanaian villages. A guide will take you around pointing out local flora and fauna and you can go either on foot or mountain bike. Longer hikes and rides over several days can also be arranged. You can also take hikes to a lovely local waterfall. There are often local festivals around the area.

Location

Accra, Greater Accra, Ghana

The neighbourhood around Safari Lodge is spectacular. It has an african village environment, but is also part of Accra, being in the northern suburbs. The surrounding mountains are full of trails which can unexpectedly end up in a secluded village which seems stuck in time. Nearby is a mountian-bike hire company where you can take guided tours of the surrounding countryside on mountain bikes or just hiking. Aburi Botanical Gardens is just minutes away. Here you can find species of trees from all over the world. The immediate area has many great restaurants. Nearest is Aruba Guesthouse which has incredible dishes, Hillburi hotel and Little Acre. All restaurants are set in wonderful ground with that spectacular view over the mountains and Accra which you can only find in this area which is fast becoming known as the 'Beverley Hills of Accra'. Bob Marley's wife Rita Marley is a near neighbour and the Bob Marley Foundation carries out a lot of social projects in this area. Both Little Acre Hotel and Hillburi hotel ( both are just a few minutes walk from the lodge, have amazing swimming pools .

During your stay
There is a security man/gardener/housekeeper who lives on the premises with his wife and family. He will welcome you to the lodge and give you the key and show you around. If you have any questions he will always be there to help but he will not intrude and you will be able to live in your self-contained apartment with garden without having to interact with anyone. If you require a maid or cleaning service this can be negotiated directly with the housekeeper and his wife but payment must be made for this.
