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

About an hour north if Cape Coast, this rainforest Park, gives a day tripper zero chances to actually see any wildlife. Once you buy your 50 cedi ticket, you wait for your 'guide' to lead you up a ten minute hike. Then you start crossing the seven legs of the elevated plank way. Unfortunately, as you'll be 100 feet above... More

The views are fantastic and it really is a cool feeling to be that high up in the rainforest. You feel safe and secure at all times. The... More

We also did the one houre walk through the forrest with Samuel who knew a lot about the animals and plantes around! All in all a nice daytrip... More

I started off my journey in Accra and somehow unter estimated the travel time to Katum National Park- overall it took 4 hours to get there. The canopy walk is amazing, the views of the rain forest are stunning. It's a great fun to walk over the bridges but you should not be afraid of heights or a shaking walkway... More

Ben our guide was knowledgeable about the local plant life and described several of the local tree varieties with interesting details. The canopy walk itself is a series of seven interconnected rope bridges suspended about 40m above the forest floor. Not for those afraid of heights. It afforded some nice views of the canopy, and I imagine on a day... More

Having been to a canopy walkway elsewhere I was a bit dubious but it was really fun and great views. Only takes a short time to complete the tour itself and there seem to be set, although regular, times for this. Don't expect to see wildlife but go for a bit of fun.

I have been here a countless times and yet always great to go on the canopy walkway. The road though needs fixing. Nevertheless the drive is worth the experience.

We were paying 50 Cedis per head for a tour of mostly 1.5 hours and over few bridges. When you just get the right feeling for the height the tour is already over. But it is still quite beautiful and one of the must see´s in the region. Don´t expect to see animals there but a lot of people

We had a great time hiking the rain forest and crossing the bridge. It was a bit scary at times, but well worth it. The tour was well done.

The information desk promised us a group discount. We paid the full foreigners premium price & got a 20% cash rebate of which half was immediately taken by our ticket facilitator. Welcome to tourism Ghana! It is quite a hike (uphill all the way) to the canopy rope walk. There is a choice of 3 or 7 bridges but the... More
