Rarely does a Ghanaian business receive rave reviews from people who patronized their service. And even rarer is it for the business to be praised for giving value for money from patrons on social media except for Safari Valley Resort.

Such is the prestige the Safari Eco Valley Resort enjoys. A point of admiration is their generous dishing of freshly squeezed juices served patrons throughout their stay at the facility.

But of course the minds behind Safari Valley Resort first birthed the Aqua Safari Resort in Ada, to rapturous welcome.

Samuel Afari Dartey and partner Richard Senkyire are credited as the minds behind the infusion of new verve in Ghana’s hospitality industry since 2015.

Nestled in the serene valleys of the Okere District on the Akuapem Ridge in Ghana’s Eastern Region, Safari Valley Resort flung its doors late in 2020 during the pandemic and has since conducted itself to be regarded as a best resort in Africa contender.

Patrons cannot laud enough various facets of the resorts’ operation; from the professional, creative and disciplined staff, beautiful scenery, sublime services, nutritious, tasty and fresh meals to interesting wildlife on display.
