We Believe You Should Fly!
Have you never flown? That's a complete disaster! And we are the true remedy for that unforgiveable blunder.
To us at BraveHearts Expeditions, a weekend or holiday is a chance to take a different route for a while, push ourselves in a new direction before continuing on our school, university or work routines.
We run different length expeditions and challenges throughout the year to fit your study or work patterns. But be warned - our expeditions are no holidays. We like to think of them as a battle against self, and a battle against the elements of nature!
We believe a BraveHearts Expeditions programme should be open to absolutely anyone who's looking for an adventure. If you want to push your survival skills to the highest limits sign on to one of our weekend or holiday expeditions where you'll have the chance to hike on the highest mountain peaks and explore the deep recesses of the Ghanaian jungle. You could also be abseiling on the Kwahu Mountains and canoeing down the vast expanse of the Volta Lake.
Whatever your desire, we have just the right mix of survival expeditions for you to prove yourself among the few, the brave and the proud - those brave men and women who make no apologies whatsoever for Greatness.
Dream the Impossible.
Seek the Unknown.

BraveHearts Expeditions starts its international volunteers and interns expedition programme in January 2015.

Our volunteering expeditions are 3-and-a-half week to 12 months' volunteering and internship adventures in Ghana where our International Adventurers will be working in a cycle of community-based, environmental-and-conservation-based, and adventure-based projects. Our International Expeditions start January 5, 2015. International volunteers and would-be Adventurers can can find out more here.
Our International Interns work in our Office of Corporate Relations on the LEEP Project, the first of its kind in Africa to aim at offering outdoor leadership and experiential learning courses to Ghana's teeming corporate executives and business leaders. International Interns will apply their marketing, business development management, public relations, graphic designing and other skills to building and expanding new and follow-on products and services to the firm. More information is available here.
Our Abseiling Expeditions start in December!
December 2014 will witness yet another historic first. BraveHearts Expeditions will launch the first commercial abseil event in Accra by an indigenous company. The abseil event will put Ghana on the world map as the first country in West to Central Africa to begin commercial abseil or rappelling sports activities, and is expected to attract participants from across the globe. The abseil component of BraveHearts Expeditions'outdoor programmes is made possible by a 25-Thousand Dollar Grant provided by the United States Africa Development Fund (USADF).
The fund was accessed by our Expedition Leader, JayJay D. Segbefia, who is currently in the United States as a Mandela Washington Fellow of the Young African Leaders Initiative. He was one of three young Ghanaian entrepreneurs to successfully apply for and receive the Grant.
Commercial Abseil or Rappelling Sports will be BraveHearts Expeditions'third Adventure Sport and Outdoor Experiential Learning activity since the firm started its operations a few years ago. It will also be the first sport to be introduced to the urban jungle. People from all walks of Ghanaian life will now be able to step over the edges of Accra's increasing high-rise buildings and conquer the fears of heights and depths in a way that will make absolutely no apologies for Greatness.
Meet Our First German Rangers!
From the first, when they signed up for the Olympus Biodiversity Expedition, Charlotte, Malaika and Sarah showed signs that they were going to make African survival history. These three international explorers have faced the highest of Ghana’s and Togo’s highest mountains, the most treacherous of Lake Volta’s unfriendly shoreline, and the hottest of Kwahu’s unforgiving wilderness. And now, they remain the first and the only Europeans to achieve the Rank of Expedition Rangers on mountaineering, wilderness survival and jungle survival expeditions in Ghana and Africa.
The entire Expedition Family welcomes Charlotte, Malaika and Sarah to BraveHearts Expeditions’ unapologetic RANGER CORPS.
