There are also a number of interesting Cultural and Historical things to see in and around Peki itself. Peki is Historically very influentual. The migration of the EWE from Dahomey (modern day Benin) in the 15th Century, due in part to the tyranical rule of King Agorkoli, the settlers in Peki empowered themselves as mediators between the ruling Akwamu and other EWE states and towns. Peki was also an important town linking the trade in enslaved people from the interior to the costal Slave Markets where they were exchanged for goods including salt. There are Caves in Peki where escaped slaves hid to evade re-capture.
It It is also possible to Bike or Walk to the Volta Lake side and take a canoe trip with local fishermen. There are numerous Guided walks through Butterfly littered, shaded forest or up the slopes of the Valley, past Cocoa farms, for a Stunning Lake View.
Peki Town itself is Simply laid out and very accesible for visitors to enjoy wandering without getting lost.
Peki is a very friendly and welcoming Town.
