This is situated about 5minuites drive form CFWO. The Volta river stretches through the Senchi Ferry where the first ever ferry arrived in the country and was used to transfer vehicles, goods and people. Now ,it has become a commercial place where two new ferries have been built to carry vehicles, people and goods across to the other side since the Adome bridge that is usually used to cross the river through to the Volta part of the country would be closed for maintenance for two years.
