The canopy was great fun. We had a large group (18) and our tour guide did a good job telling us about the park although smaller groups tend to get more from the experience such as having types of trees, etc. explained. There is a 1 cedi fee per person to enter the park and 40 cedi fee per person... More

The only thing is the park was the walk in the threes. A few minutes walking through the wood and hearing roomers of animals that have been there the last year was not so exiting. The lunch place was nice, a small souvenirshop. Its worth the tour, the walk in the three was spectacular.

One of the few places in the world with a canopy walk. This place is very crowded so don't expect to see much wildlife, but the canopy walk is a great experience you should do before you go home. The national park itself........I have my doubts.

When you are visiting the Castles on Cape Coast this little national park is worth the 1h detour to the north. Roads to get there are still ok, though a 4x4 is more comfortable. Air-condition comes in handy too as in the countryside / rainforest it's hotter than on the coast. We didn't see many animals, but some plants and... More

visited Kakum national park some years back with my family, really scary high rope bridges but my young children went across them fearlessly! Beautiful rainforest and park, nature reserve was interesting and fun for all the family. A memorable and enjoyable day, scary but fun :)

The canopy walk on the rope bridge was amazing, very scary, but a great experience and a chance for you to get breath taking pics. Our guide was great. Make sure you wear comfortable closed toe shoes.

We spent a couple of days here birding. The canopy walkway is phenomenal, and is great as you simply walk out from a raised section onto the walkway, without having to go up a ladder or steps. This made it easier to negotiate. We were travelling with our 11 year old daughter who loved the walkway. The forest in the... More
