Dodi Princess at Akosombo, Lake Volta is home to MV Dodi Princess – An extension of the Volta Hotel. The newly-built 176-capacity cruise boat, the Dodi Princess II replaced its predecessor.
The three-deck Dodi Princess II, though half the capacity of Dodi Princess I (350), has all the intimate details of the latter, with a modern appeal presented by its nicely-set-out bar on the middle deck. The wooden-floor upper-deck with a beautiful view of the lake is dedicated for live band music entertain guests on-board.
Sailing on the lake, one can see the Akosombo Dam, the Presidential chalets, Dwarfs’ Island, the tilapia farm and scenic views of surrounding mountains.
Aside from the two-hour cruise to the Dodi Island, the Maritime Club House operated by the hotel offers water-sports lovers a host of other activities.
There are kayaks and speed-boats for water-sports enthusiasts. For those with aquaphobia, the view of the river and surrounding mountainous landscape, as well as the fresh breeze, will surely soothe you as you sip on freshly-made fruit juice and treat your fingers to some hot-grilled tilapia harvested from the tilapia farm on the lake.
Upon arrival at Dodi, one is welcomed by the inhabitants of the island with lively cultural music and traditional dances; it’s truly a lovely experience. A section of the rocky island is inhabited by some 300 people. The other half, where people usually visit, belongs to the VRA.
The island hitherto had nothing noteworthy to attract hundreds of visitors who might want to sleep over or spend some money when they visit. However, that has changed.
The VRA has created a park on the unadorned island. There is now an ostrich park, a bush-buck park, and two large bird-cages with assorted colourful local and foreign birds. The three large ostriches at the theme park are also friendly.
