Kakum National Park

Kakum National Park in the Central Region of Ghana.

Located in the Central Region of Ghana, about 20 kilometers north of Cape Coast and covering 360 square kilometers of Ghana’s rapidly dwindling rainforest, Kakum is considered the nation’s park. It is a must-see destination for every tourist. It has an area spanning 145 square meters of green vegetation. It is also home to many endangered species like elephants and antelopes. The highlight of this destination definitely has to be the much-talked-about canopy walkway.

The canopy walk is suspended at about a staggering 30 meters above the ground. Most first-timers to this ground have a mix of chills and thrills when trying it because it is truly a daunting but fun experience. Anyone with a sense of adventure can conquer it. Aside from your human senses being heightened, the view on top of the “bridge” is truly beautiful with all nature’s greens on display it allows you to appreciate nature’s best.

These include traditional buildings such as the Ashanti King's Palace and the Manhyia Palace Museum, as well as exhibits of traditional crafts, textiles, and artwork.

In addition to its cultural exhibits, the Kumasi Cultural Centre also features a traditional Ashanti market, offering visitors the opportunity to purchase authentic crafts and other items.
