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

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

The canopy walk through Kakum National Park was easily one of the highlights of my experience in Ghana. It was a blast. It is important to wear good shoes, the suspended bridges do move a bit, so you need to hold on and have traction on your shoes. It rained a little while I was there and it got a... More

I can't believe I never reviewed this place many years ago. Although I have an issue with heights, I found the hike enjoyable. There is a hike of about a mile or so up hill before you get to the canopy. I got to the canopy and decided I wanted to turn around. Hahaha well, once you start walking you... More

We went here with a group, and had a great time. The views from the canopy walk were beautiful. The canopy walk itself is adventurous. They are obviously well constructed and safe, but you are so high up it makes your heart beat a little faster when you look down. I recommend this as a great place to see the... More

There are not a lot of animals to view here, but the canopy is fun to walk on. The park overall does not have a lot to offer. It's nature and it's there, but nothing added to make it even more appealing. The tour guide was good. Do NOT use your credit card or any card in their store, cash... More
