Liati Wote village

The location of The Tagbo Falls Lodge in Liati Wote, Afadjato valley, Volta Region, Ghana » View on large mapLiati Wote is a rural village and a popular 'community-based' tourism destination. It has a total population of about 600 members, mostly small-scale farmers. The community is organised along the lines of traditional leadership, headed by a chief and his team of elders.

It is an ideal place to witness daily life, meet local people and soak up the friendly atmosphere. We have a long-term, personal link with the people in the village and this is where we like to take our guests to experience the real Ghana.

In our opinion, Liati Wote is a great example of a successful community-based tourism project; the way tourism is organised is pleasant, the villagers have a positive attitude towards visitors and the income generated from tourism directly benefits the community as a whole.

Our personal link with Liati Wote

We have a very personal link with Liati Wote. After many years of visiting this community with our clients, we decided to build the Tagbo Falls Lodge here in Liati Wote, to be able to offer our guests more in-depth cultural experiences and the chance to really enjoy the beauty of the nature and people of the region and at the same time involve the community with responsible tourism.

Mounting the plastic waste bins in Liati WoteWall paintings made by local artists to create awareness about littering in Liati Wote.Previously, there was no mid-range tourist accommodation in the village. The availability of comfortable accommodation makes it possible for visitors to stay longer and really explore the village and its surroundings. The lodge is also a springboard for many new initiatives.

Developing the lodge resulted in work for community members and triggered the eagerness of the villagers to engage further in the area of responsible tourism. Together with the community we initiated several eco-touristic development projects, through our NGO, the Stepping Stones for Africa foundation.

One of our projects is to help the community with tackling the plastic waste problem that come with an increasing number of tourists. Waste bins have been placed along the major hiking trails, and together with local artists, wall paintings have been made to create awareness about the importance of recycling plastic. The project also involves the Green Club, which has made environmental awareness part of the school curriculum.

Rooms and prices

The Tagbo Falls Lodge has 5 comfortable rooms, all with warm water and fan. Two rooms share a shower and toilet, and the other rooms have a their own bathrooms.

The lodge has a communal space with a kitchette where you can prepare your own tea and coffee, and various sitting and hanging areas.

Hike Mount Afadjato and surrounding hills - Enjoy the mountain trails

From Jolinaiko’s Tagbo Falls Lodge, you can follow several trails of various difficulty levels leading to Ghana’s highest peak Mount Afadjato (1.5h). The landscape offers stunning views over the lush mountains of Eastern Ghana and Western Togo. On a clear day you can even see the Volta Lake. Depending on your level of fitness you can extend the hike by combining neighbouring Bledi or venturing into the surrounding hills of Mount Aduado and the Twin Mountains. In addition to the Tagbo Falls and Mount Afadjato trails, the lush surroundings of Liati Wote offer plenty of other hiking opportunities. Whether you are after a short, leisurely stroll or an intensive full-day or multi-day hike, this is the place to go.

Walk to Tagbo Falls - Enjoy a family hike to the refreshing falls

From Jolinaiko’s Tagbo Falls Lodge, a 45 minute to 1 hour relatively easy hike will take you to the pretty Tagbo waterfalls. Enjoy a guided walk through tropical farmlands and coffee plantations to the falls. Cross the three bridges over the meandering river and refresh at the pool or enjoy a picknick at the foot of the waterfalls. The water temperature, size of the falls and the possibility to swim depends on the season. The The Tagbo River plays an important spiritual role in the community of Liati Wote; for example it is taboo to eat the fish from the river.

Swimming under the Tagbo Falls.

Biking - Explore the area

The area around Liati Wote is perfect for biking. Explore the surrounding villages, fields and farmlands together. We have sturdy bikes available at the lodge.

Explore the Liati Wote area by bike.

Village and farm walk - Daily life in rural Ghana

Meet the people of Liati Wote and witness the daily activities such as drying of cocoa, extracting palm oil, cooking and milling maize. Village life has a tranquil pace and you will find people chatting at the market stalls or playing games in the shade of the tree. To get a real feel for daily life in rural Ghana, you can join one of the local farmers to their farmlands. A variety of crops are cultivated in Liati Wote such as palm oil, cocoa, rice, maize, and a range of vegetables. You will also find palmtrees and a bamboo forest along the Tagbo River.

Cooking with Philo and Enyonam

If you wish, join in the kitchen and prepare a local meal with crops from the field. The typical meals in the community are the staple foods like akple, banku, and ofcourse fufu. The areas is also known for garden eggs (small aubergines) that are delicious in stews with yam and plantains, and local brown rice.

Palm wine and palm oil distillery

The tapping of fresh palm wine from a tree trunk and the home brewing of local gin called ‘Akpeteshi’ fascinated many of our visitors. This local gin is very popular throughout the country and the production of it is a true industry in Ghana. In a simple but innovative way, with very basic means, the brewers manage to produce large quantities of this popular drink. The jerrycans used in the distilling process can be seen everywhere and can even function as a signpost for a small bar.

Borborbor - Drumming and dancing performance - Traditional Ewe recreational music and dance

Borborbor is the most popular style of recreational music and dance of the Ewe people from the mid-Volta region. It links traditional drumming rhythms to proverbial lyrics; the drummers weave moderate beats while female dancers and singers revolve around them. A community Borborbor performance can be arranged upon request and will surely liven up your experience of Ewe culture!

This is a lovely place to stay with for so many reasons! Philo gave us a very warm welcome and helped us with everything. We all loved the food she prepared which was beautifully served in antique black pottery wares, other dishware and baskets. The textiles and fabriques used in the lodge are very nice, too.

We climbed the highest mountain, visited both of the big falls.

We will recommend this part of Ghana and the Tagbo Falls Lodge and the services of Jolinaiko to our colleagues and friends in Accra.

This place is just a very well-kept secret. So nice and quiet, we had a very relaxing time and still learnt a lot of village life - very educational for two 16-year old boys coming from Europe. The circular economy in full swing. Thank you Philo and Stella for taking good care of us. We loved your nice okro stew.

We loved this place soooo much! Didn’t want to leave! Wish I could live here! The food was excellent, so delicious! The staff were fantastic and made us feel at home. Best accommodation so far on our 5-week journey through Ghana, Togo and Benin. We loved hiking up the mountain and visiting the amazing waterfall and swimming there! This is really the gold standard of eco-tourism, which includes not only the lodge but also the village and the mountain, rainforest and waterfall. Congratulations!

P.s. Philo and the staff tended to our every need, we felt pampered!

Thank you very much for a wonderful stay. Your hospitality and the cooking have been amazing + we particularly enjoyed the variety of different Ghanian meals. We had two very good walks up Mts. Afadjato + Aduado one day, + the Twin Peaks + Tagbo Falls the next, with afternoon relaxing on the terrace, where we enjoyed the peace and quiet + bird songs. We’ll definitely recommend this to our friends.
