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

There are only 2 things you can do in Kakum: a guided walk through the forest where you get info about the plants (you don't see any animals) or a guided walk on the hanging bridges. The second is the most popular, and it's quite cool to walk on the bridges over the forest. You get some good views and... More

After being informed CHUCK NORRIS filmed a scene for one of his action packed blockbusters, I HAD to visit the high flying but somewhat serene canopy walks in Kakum. The hike through the jungle, occasional appearance on native fauna. Definitely a must for any outdoor enthusiasts.

Definitely worth a visit! The park is well organized and provides stunning views of the forest and canopy. The seven hanging bridges are not for those scares of height, though seem completely safe and well designed. A stunning tribute to the environment!

7 narrow bridges to cross, but before you get to these bridges you have to walk up rocky little hills..( sad faces)..not that great, so suitable shoes are recommended and water. The journey to the first bridge is about 10mins depending on how long it takes you to walk up, but overall experience was good, but would not do it... More

In the beginning I was really scared. But it was really fun, unfortunately I thought we might see some animals but I think the season wasn't the right one to see animals. But all in all it was a good trip.

We went there over the Christmas period so the place was rather crowded but it was great fun.We thoroughly enjoyed the canopy walk and I would certainly recommend a visit here .The walk through the forest was also made interesting by the local guide.

You can bring your non-resident card if you live in Ghana and get the local resident rate. Done it 2 times, now. Great guides. The hill is a BIT of a climb..my mother at 75 did it after hip surgery and kids from 3 and up can probably go with help. Steep but not too hard. The rope walk is... More

It is a very exciting hike through the nature. If you never done this before - this is totally worth the visit. Very green and breathtaking. You can also drink/eat a fresh coconut or a cacao fruit just from 0.25 cents! It is totally worth it! My only problem was that the hike is a little short. There are only... More

This is an absolutely beautiful forest with the tallest trees I have ever seen. The canopy walkway is a really special experience for the mildly adventurous - although very high up in places, it has rope sides which make one feel secure - it would really be difficult to fall out of the walkway. It is not strenuous at all,... More
