This forested parkland makes for a great day hike with fantastic views, especially from the wooden suspension bridges that soar a hundred feet overhead.

Been to Ghana several times and only recently visited this great park. Just go, and don't forget to take your camera!

Jade and Lyon will tell you that it's one of the most simple but amazing facilities to experience! The sound of the wild will keep you in suspense all night and then you wake up when you finally sleep for a morning hike through the forest! Leopards, Colobus Monkeys, duikers, pangolins, etc. will just keep you 'excited'.

Try the canopy walk if you dare. its safe but scary for many. You can also try the hike if you are up to it and catch a meal on your way out

Get there as early as possible and hire one of the locals to guide you, they will be available at the ticket office. Oddly enough it's more expensive if you tell them you are "birding" as opposed to just visiting. Not sure what the difference is!

I loved the natural views and peacefulness of the parks and loved the suspense bridges. Well worth it.

I had the pleasure of visiting Kakum National park in March 2015. At first the bridge seemed like the scariest thing ever, but after a while you get used to it. I went with family and it was enjoyable. I like to mention there is a bit of hiking involved so I would dress appropriately (something I failed to do).... More

The Kanope walk is a very nice experience, and everyone should try this at least once in their life!

This is one of those tourist attraction that you're surely lad you did. This is a family outing yet my 23yr old daughter cried and thought her life was ending. Try not to look down, but the walkway is very safe, and gives you a very good view as to what a rain Forrest is like. You can't visit Central... More

Living and working in Ghana for some time now and eventually got around to visiting Kakum. Road to Kakum isn't great so be prepared for a few bumps. If you miss any potholes on the way there, you'll find them on the way back! First impression is that the place is well managed and clean. Good parking and spotless toilets.... More
