Kpando

Kpando is a very nice village close to Lake Volta and offers a whole range of scenery and activities for tourists, visitors and volunteers.

Enjoy the wonder that is Kpando!!!



How to get there?

Kpando is about 208 km north from Accra. In Accra there is daily public transport that takes you to Kpando in about 4 hours.
Try to leave Accra before 2 pm or on a sunday so that you avoid the traffic jam and you will travel by daylight and enjoy the nice scenery after Atimpoku.
  • Every day there are several tro-tro's to Kpando as well at Tudu Station or Tema Station (ask taxi driver to drop you at the station).
  • Other option is to take STC bus (if you are lucky it's a new one) that leaves in the afternoon at Tudu Station. Experience with STC is that it will take you 5 to 10 hours to reach Kpando.
  • The airco Uytong bus that leaves around 10 to 12 o'clock at Novotel park (was available in 2013, no idea if this service still exists).
  • You can also decide to charter a taxi.


Where to eat and drink in Kpando?
 
For food you can enjoy the food on the streets. But for tourists there are some limited options with Western food
  • Catering service Emo House (contact us to make arrangement)
  • Bowman City has nice restaurant
  • Restaurant Hotor Hotel  or Cedi Guesthouse (not always available)
  • Indomie or rice dishes near Akusika drinking spot
Kpando has a lot of drinking spots. Most popular ones are Maxi Spot and Akusika on the main road. Opposite the taxi station you can have a drink at the roof terras of Mary's Garden.
