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

A day spent here is well worth it! Some of the original trees are over 300 years old, and 70 meters high. The 7 suspension bridges through the canopy walk are slightly scary, but I was very glad I did it. A further walk through the forest with a knowledgeable guide was another highlight.

You do a lot more walking on step rocky paths to get to the canopy than you do in the canopy itself. Nothing much to see. You do this just for the thrill. There is a sign on your way out that says "You have survived the canopy walk" and you can buy t-shirts to this effect. Not a great... More

It is too much fun. It is the most fun when you climb in the tree tops. It is worth the drive to get there from where ever you stay

We travelled from Osu/Accra to visit the Park and then were stopping overnight at a beachside hotel. It took 4 1/2 hours drive (should have been 3 hrs but bad road works). Nice park, clean toilets, places to buy food/drink and a few shops. Paid for the canopy walk and there are guides at regular intervals who take you through... More

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

We spent about an hour here which felt like enough. You take a short walk through the forest to the rope walk before you climb across the bridges above the tree tops. 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

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
