A Rainforest Adventure: Exploring the Canopy Walkway
Are you ready for an exciting adventure into the heart of Ghana's forests? Then you need to visit Kakum National Park. You will find it in the Central Region of Ghana, about 170 kilometres from Accra.
Kakum National Park is a 357 km park of undisturbed rainforest. As one of the oldest national parks, this conservation area comprises the Kakum National Park and Assin Attandaso Resource Reserve which is just nearby. The park is famous for its impressive canopy walkway, which is one of the longest in Africa. The walkway hangs 40 metres above the ground and stretches over 330 metres through the treetops of the rainforest. Canopy is an experience you won't forget. Every single one of those breathtaking views is so worth it!
Apart from the canopy walkway, Kakum National Park is home to over 500 species of butterflies, 250 species of birds including five hornbill, the Frazer-eagle owl, and the African grey and Senegal parrots. Here you will find many other wildlife - over 100 species of mammals, reptiles and amphibians and forty species of larger mammals, elephants, leopards, antelopes, primate species including the Diana monkey. Take a guided tour, explore the park’s lush vegetation and learn more about the different animals and their habitats.
For the “next-level” adventurous ones, the park offers a night walk through the forest. This guided tour is a chance to experience the nocturnal creatures of the forest, such as the elusive bushbaby and listen to the sounds of the forest at night. It's an exhilarating experience that you don’t want to miss.
After a long day of explorations in the park, you can relax and unwind in one of the park's campsites or lodges. The lodges offer comfortable accommodation with stunning views of the park.
Kakum National Park is a must-visit place for all nature lovers and adventure seekers. The stunning canopy walkway, diverse wildlife, and exciting guided tours offer an unforgettable experience.
