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

Not for those scared of heights thats for sure but really fun. I just wish i had spent more time looking at the beautiful canopy but was too busy gripping the ropes and concentrating on getting across. There is a pretty steep climb before the...More

The main feature of this is a rope bridge walk around the forest canopy - it has great views, but we were unfortunate in having a bunch of brain-dead kids from a school overcrowding it and jumping up and down on the bridge, which made...More

Awful drive to Kakum, the walk is spectacular. A must see when in Ghana. The walk is nice and the guide was friendly, a minus was the extra money he asked when you want to do the walk after the bridges. That is a turndown.

The Kakum National Park is at the end of a long and very bad dirt road from Elmina Castle on the Cape Coast, but it's well worth the drive. There is a short but steep walk up from the visitors' centre to the canopy walkway....More

Its a place for wild life lovers with canopy walkway, which is 350 metres (1,150 ft) long and connects seven tree tops which provides access to the forest

Although it’s not easy to get to, walking on the seven rope bridges over the rainforest canopy is well worth the trip. We rode a Tro-tro bus for an hour to and from Cape Coast over some bumpy roads to access the park. I’m sure...More

We visited Kakum National Park to take a walk on the canopy walk way only to discover that there was so much more to experience. We started with the canopy walk which requires a lot of bravery if you are one with a fear of...More

The canopy walk was beautiful. We did not see any animals, or at least not big ones. But we did have an amazing view over the rainforest. And you may choose to either walk over three of these walkways or six. The organisation there is...More

Best to go by road. The lodge?? Just look for Airbnb or a hotel close by. I've never stayed overnight inside the park. Is that possible??

Yes you can. If you are 8+ months you may not want to do that.....but I didn't see any restrictions for that the last time I was there. Keep in mind you have quite a steep hill to climb to even get to the first family. Head... More
