The project will be marketed to Ghanaians and international eco-tourists and volunteers through effective channels. For the Ghanaian domestic tourists, Radio and radio discussions will be adopted as first level of contact with the markets.
The project will also develop a website and vigorously promote it. Besides this, the project will publish a brochure for local and international distribution, especially at international tourism fairs. Fairs listed for such a direct entry into the markets include the ITB, Berlin; the World Travel market, London and the Vakantiebeurs in Utrecht, Holland.
The project website will have essential links to the websites of eco-tourism NGOs, the Ministry of Tourism and Ghana Tourist Board, and websites of the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission.
The land belongs to Stools under the Paramountcy of Akwamu, from whom the land has been leased for 50 years with an option to renew.
The project would involve the following activities:
Reforestation through tree-planting by direct labour. Various and numerous seedlings will be planted and nurtured through direct labour to create employment. Seedlings will be purchased from the Forest Services Division of the Forestry Commission and planting will be done under expert direction. Trees to be planted include rain tree, teak, Ofram, Iroko and moringa for its medicinal use as well as exotic/colorful trees to brighten the forest. The fringes will have a fire belt, and bamboos with a high potential for crafts development will be featured and planted.
Development of nature appreciation trails that would link the interesting features of the reserve, with camping and picnic sites for tourists and local residents to enable a deeper appreciation of the benign values of the natural environment.
Massive public education for 20 communities, community and opinion leaders on nature conservation, ecotourism, visitor handling and reception, ecological restoration values and tourism enterprise development.
Development of two tourist lodges on the mountain tops for visitors desiring to have overnight stays for in-depth nature appreciation. These lodges will be strategically located for solitude and for breath-taking views of the Volta Lake and townships below.
Development of a water sports facility on the banks of the Volta River / waterfront for water-sports loving patrons and visitors
Development and placement of interpretative facilities for self-guided nature walks
