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

Great!

Had a pretty nice experience! Very interesting stories from the tour guide. Nice that they have the option to take a shortcut while on the bridge :)

Its a very interesting, very beautiful canopy walk built deep in the rain forest of Kakum National Park in the Central Region of Ghana.

The roads leading to the place needs serious work done on them. Wasn't really fond of the fact that ticketing has various prices attached to locals or foreigners. Loves the art craft shops located on the premises. Food price expensive for what you get. The Capone walk itself is wonderful But would prefer if more was shown say a couple... More

I enjoyed this. This walk up hill to the wood and rope bridges is rough. Wear comfortable shoes that have good traction. The bridges are scary, but exhilarating. The whole trip takes a little longer than an hour. Loved it!

It's clean and very well managed. Once you can brave the terrible road network you're bound to have a good time. My first visit after about 15 years and I can say it's in excellent shape after so many years. The canopy walk is not for the faint-hearted although a must do for the adventure junkies. It's a beautiful place... More

We took a quick trip to Kakum National Park from Elmina - only spent about 1.5 hours there - but I would recommend going if you're near the coast. We did the canopy walk, pricy at 30 GHS per person, but I think it was worth it. We hiked up to the canopy with a guide, got to explore around... More

We visited Kakum as a day trip from Elmina. The price was a bit high, but the canopy walk was really cool. It wasn't life-changing, but worth it if you are in the area.

Walking on the canopy walk was a great experience. Unfortunately for someone who wants to inhale the nature, big school classes were running through the park and made a lot of noise - nothing what you would like to have in a national park. It was difficult to take the time you would need for.

The canopy walk and guide was okay to the Ghanaian standard. Services at the bar was okay, but like most places in Ghana, prices on menu's are never updated on purpose, and i guess it is to cheat customers as your final bill is never what the price list or menu card says. All in all, good services and okay... More

We were there on Saturday and it was a bit crowded and we payed 30 and the guide lift us behind. It's good to go there if you live near. But it doesn't worth traveling for it
