"Kakum National Park, high in the jungle" Kakumdu by Pieter11

Kakumdu Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 7 photos

Kakum National Park is the most popular one the Ghana, and probably the whole of West Africa. It is situated very close to the city of Cape Coast, in the Central Region of Ghana.

The park includes a large area of rainforest, with tall trees, wild animals and a lot of interesting smaller vegetation in the forests ground. All this natural beauty is spreaded out over hills and valley, creating a beautiful park that is easily accessible.

The major attraction in Kakum is the Canopy Walk: a track of suspension bridges between some of the highest trees in the park. The maximum height in Kakum is 43 metres above the ground!

    At first I thought you were standing in front of a large rock... then I realised it was the base of the Kapok tree... how big is it??
