Dodi Princess Cruise – Ultimate Guide

by Kojo Pocu

Dodi World, Ghana’s one-of-a-kind aqua tourism destination, will provide you with the thrills and adventure of a lifetime. Are you in Ghana looking to experience cruise vacation? There isn’t much here but Dodi Princess Cruise can give you the experience you want.

Dodi Island History

MV Dodi Princess, an addition of the Volta Hotel, is located at Dodi Princess in Akosombo, Lake Volta. The Dodi Princess cruise II, a freshly built 176-capacity cruise ship, replaced its predecessor.

Despite having half the capacity of Dodi Princess I (350), the three-deck Dodi Princess II has all the intimate touches of the former, with a modern appeal provided by its nicely-set-out bar on the middle deck. Live band music entertains guests on-board on the wooden-floor upper-deck with a great view of the lake.

The Akosombo Dam, Presidential chalets, Dwarfs’ Island, the tilapia farm, and magnificent vistas of nearby mountains may all be seen when sailing on the lake.

Aside from the two-hour voyage to Dodi Island, the hotel’s Maritime Club House provides a variety of additional water-sports activities.

Watersports aficionados can rent kayaks and speedboats. For those who are afraid of water, the view of the river and surrounding mountainous terrain, as well as the fresh breeze, will undoubtedly calm you as you sip freshly-made fruit juice and eat hot-grilled tilapia from the lake’s tilapia farm.


Upon arrival at Dodi, visitors are greeted by the island’s residents who perform colourful cultural music and traditional dances; it’s a genuinely memorable experience. Around 300 people live on a part of the rocky island. The VRA owns the other half, which is where most people go.

Until now, the island had nothing notable to draw hundreds of tourists who might wish to stay overnight or spend money while they were there. That, however, has changed.

On the bare island, the VRA has built a park. There is currently an ostrich park, a bushbuck park, and two enormous bird cages with a variety of colourful native and exotic birds. The theme park’s three enormous ostriches are very friendly.
