My visit there was really great, the experience was lovely. The tour guide was very nice and gave good information about the place. The washrooms weren't the best though.

Kakum National Park is an excellent walking tours which include the famous canopy walkway, the forest also provides the perfect opportunity to see much of Ghana's indigenous plant life, as well as rare butterflies,birds and species of mammals, reptiles and amphibians.

The canopy walk was a great experience once I plucked up the courage to do it and faced my fear of heights! There was not much to see in the way of wildlife but it is still worth doing just for the experience of having done it. The views are lovely from the platforms once you stop hugging the tree... More

The canopy walk was a lot of fun! It was a good hike to get to it, which was nice because we got a chance to see the forest from ground level and then from above in the canopy. It was shorter than I expected but definitely very worthwhile. Note that you should not expect to see animals like monkeys... More

The Canopy Walk is really great, and at +30m above the floor it is not for those who are afraid of heights. There is a guided forest tour from the facilities and shops at the entrance, which gives an insight into some of the plants and trees and their use. Not much in terms of ‘wildlife” although you will hear... More

We loved the canopy walk at this well visited Ghanian tourist site. Entry rates start at the car entrance, 1 cedi per person. Entry into the park from the main entrance site is for the park and second for the canopy walk. We paid 60 cedis for two for both fees. (one a student) You must take the ranger/escort throughout....

Terrific walkway one the longest we have experienced. We were very fortunate to be the only people on the whole walkway for most of the time. An African man came onto the walkway after us took about five steps onto it and then turned around and got off!! Not for the faint hearted. My wife who loves canopy walks had... More

the Canopy Walk is really an eye opener. It is situated about minimum 60meters off the ground and well maintained. View from the canopy itself is awesome and you can see almost everything. The cost for foreigners is 40 cedis and students at 20 cedis. You will have to wait for their local guide to bring you up to the... More
