Welcome to Kakum National Park
An easy day trip from Cape Coast, Kakum National Park is a slice of native rainforest famous for its canopy walk, a series of viewing platforms linked by a string of bouncy suspension bridges 30m above ground. The park is also home to over 300 species of bird, 600 species of butterfly and 40 mammal species, but it can be difficult to see (or hear) any of them, because tours of the walkway are conducted in large groups. It's best to come on a weekday, first thing in the morning or in the late afternoon when there are fewer visitors and you can enjoy the peace of the rainforest.
If you would like to see wildlife, you will need to venture further into the park and make special arrangements with a guide the day before.
