The Akwamu Hills Community Project is located at a regional roads confluence between the Eastern and Volta Regions of Ghana, and extends over these mountain ridges to the east of the lower reaches of the Volta Lake, the largest man-made lake in the world. The lake was created in the early 1960s when the Volta River was dammed at Akosombo for a hydro-electric dam that currently supplies most of Ghana and some West African countries with electricity.
The ridge covers an area of approximately twenty  square kilometers [20km2], and located right after Ghana's only historical bridge, the breathtaking Adomi bridge, and bounded on the east by the highway to Ho the Volta Regional capital, and on the west by the road to Akwamufie and Hohoe, and also closer to Aburi botanical garden and Akaa waterfalls.
As an ecotourism project, the project is conveniently located with very easy access from Accra and Tema with a resident population of 4.5 million people. Ho is the capital for the Volta Region with the well-known Mountains Afadzato and Amedzofe, while the Hohoe area is a centre for ecotourism activities in Ghana, especially in terms of waterfalls, mountain adventure, ethnic festivals and ancestral / historical caves. Preceding arrival at the operational area is the Shai Hills wildlife reserve. The project is therefore located in a prime ecotourism staging area.
