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

This is a good experience but not for those scared of heights or not into long walks with plenty of stairs. We didn't see any animals but the adventure of being so high up through a jungle is worth it.

This treetop walk is well constructed and quite an experience for someone who is not fond of heights. The incredible scenery was completely destroyed by a large group of young men who stopped endlessly to photograph one another, hassled endlessly to photograph me and my friends and spent a long time jumping up and down on the walk which terrified...

If You are in Accra it is quite a drive (over 3 hours), but worth it. The drive itself is interesting as you pass towns and see local life Once you get there it is pretty organised We got there late so only walked for 45 minutes on the hanging bridges Great experience If you are not good with heights...

On our way out we noticed there's an Irish cafe just outside?! Damn, next time I'll have to check it out. I'm from limerick in Ireland, and really didn't expect to see that cafe doing Irish Coffees... Also the amount of Guinness around Ghana in general was impressive :p When you're on the top of the canopy you feel like... More

The whole park is nice. However, it rained too hard to do the walk, so we just hung out and enjoyed ourselves

Kakum National Park extends into neighboring Ivory Coast and is home to a wide array of endemic flora fauna that call this primary forest home. Local tour guides will guide you through the well-established paths through the beautiful forest to walk through the canopy on well-made suspension bridges, take a look at the "Tree House" and learn more about this...

I enjoyed traversing the suspension bridges so much! There were many scaredy cats in our group, but everyone made it across all 7 bridges. The scenary is beautiful and the visitors center has a lovely museum telling the history of the park. The museum could use an update though, there are pieces of the displays that are missing or have... More

If you do not have trouble with heights, the high line tour here is a lot of fun and can be combine with a tour of one of the slave castles for an interesting day out of Accra
