“An amazing horseback experience - Ghana like you have never seen it before!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I highly recommend the Green Ranch for anyone who is looking for a wonderful and relaxing horseback experience. My friend and I left our small children with our husbands for the morning while we embarked on a 3 hour ride that took us part way around the lake. Even though we were beginners, Elodie made us feel confident with her excellent instructions, and her love of her beautiful horses was infectious! The ride took us through small fishing villages, past schools with excited children madly waving at us, through plantain orchards, down to the waters edge and even into the water, which the horses absolutely loved! Elodie's knowledge of the area, the vegetation, the people and Ghana itself provides for informative and interesting conversation as you ride. The only downside for us was that we had to be back in Accra that same day and couldn't stay for a meal, however, before we rode, we were offered some lovely homemade cold mint tea which was so refreshing on a hot day! All in all, my friend and I had an amazing experience which we would highly recommend to anyone, thank you Elodie and the Green Ranch for allowing us to experience Ghana from horseback!

“Enjoy an unforgettable rest at Elodie's Green Ranch, Lake Bosomtwe”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

If you ever have a chance to visit Elodie’s Green Ranch at Lake Bosomtwe, do not hesitate! I spent wonderful days here. One of the most unforgettable memories is a delicious vegetarian dinner (table végétable) Elodie prepared during full moon. From the terrace of the Green Ranch you have an amazing view over the lake. Attracted by the curiosity to go on horseback for the first time in my life, Elodie’s horses allowed for a great experience. The rides along the lake were very peaceful and adventurous. I’m already looking forward to my next trip to Ghana – and I’ll make sure to visit the Green Ranch again!

“fun horseback riding, comfortable accommodation and great food!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

The Green Ranch offers so much it would be a mistake to visit Lake Bosumtwi and not go! I initially went for horseback riding, which by the way was an excellent way to see the lake. After horseback riding I decided to stay for lunch which was so delicious. I hadn't had really missed home cooked delicious healthy food and the drinks are also fantastic (the cinnamon tea is something I tired to duplicate when I returned home!). I stayed the night and had another delicious meal and a nice glass of wine. I slept very well in the comfortable bed and enjoyed a fresh breakfast (and great coffee!) with a stunning view. The prices are more than reasonable and it was definitely a highlight of my trip to Ghana!
