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

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

So first of all, you should be prepared for a slow bumpy ride getting here. The road is in very bad shape. Kakum forest is wonderful if you love nature. There are some really great hikes. The Canopy walk way on the other hand...I will not recommend it if you are afraid of heights. I will not recommend going on... More

I did the canopy walk as a challenge to myself. As someone who is afraid of heights, I found this experience truly thrilling yet scary. The walk up to the trees was a little rocky and steep and very humid and hot. Once you reach the canopy walk, you walk in smaller groups. There are several bridges connected by stationary... More

Getting here with public transportation was a trek. It's located off a deserted road. There are two entrance fee. One to enter the park and then another to do the walk. The walks are led by a tour guide in a group. So you are not free to hang out. The entire experience last about 30 minutes, it depends on... More

This was such a fun park, and the guided nature walk teaches you about local plants, animals and traditions! The canopy walk is so unique and fun; I have a fear of heights but the high netting along the sides and the safety of it reassured me (but I had to make sure not to look straight down!). My friend...

We only did the canopy walk, but I really enjoyed it. I would suggest getting there as early as possible, as many school groups arrived right after us which forced us to rush a bit over the bridges. It's really amazing to be so far above the trees on these rickety bridges. Definitely not recommended for anyone who is afraid... More

The canopy walk at the Kakum National Park was the best thing that I experienced though was afraid of height. Can Do Land Tours Ghana knew how to do it best with their guidance. The flora and fauna of the park is spectacular from the canopy walkway.

I visited a while ago in 2011,thought it would be the same feeling but it was different..I think its always gonna be different any time you climb the walkway. You need a good 'heart'to make it through the hill leading to the walkway and then you need 'grace' to complete the walkway. Serene atmosphere,few sound of animals heard,Great to ur... More

The canopy walk was fun. You don't really see the forest floor much due to the amount of trees below the walkways. The walkways feel really solid.

Kakum National Park is beautiful and breath taking. The high-ropes bridges were so much fun, and provided for great picture taking opportunities. Take the hike afterward to see the gigantic trees and African forest. You won't be disappointed!
