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

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

Was a great adventure at the kakum park,the experiance at the canopy walk is unforgetable.I advice the future visitors to use sport shoes.An amazing place.There is 2 prices,one for local and another one to the foreigners,but they made a special offer for those who are married with a local persons.I recommend a visit to this park.

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

Another MUST DO! challenge yourself - walk all 7 canopy bridges! this was one of the highlights of our trip. A real team building experience. In general I am not afraid of heights but there was something about this experience that left me feeling like I could do anything!

We enjoyed the walk through the park, the guide was not really happy to do the job, we found, but the bridges were really an experience and worth the money. Giving them an extra money , helped to see also other parts of the park.

The thrill and fear of heights is all that the Canopy walk boasts of. We didn't see any animals or wildlife despite it being a rain forest. Didn't get to see the regenerated rain forest but it appears to have the same experience has the Canopy walk. Tree house is only good if you would be doing a bird watching.... More

The Canopy Walk is it! There were seven bridges in all. After the first bridge, those who are timid can return via a detour. But once you get on the second bridge, you have no choice but to go through the rest - there are no more detours. It was fun! The third bridge was perhaps more wobbly than the... More
