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

Its a place for wild life lovers with canopy walkway, which is 350 metres (1,150 ft) long and connects seven tree tops which provides access to the forest

Although it’s not easy to get to, walking on the seven rope bridges over the rainforest canopy is well worth the trip. We rode a Tro-tro bus for an hour to and from Cape Coast over some bumpy roads to access the park. I’m sure...More

The canopy walk is one of the best experiences you can imagine. If you are able to do it make sure you do. The national park is fantastic. Make the effort to see the area.

The canopy walk was great. There are seven bridges, but also the option of completing only three if it's not for you. We walked with the treetops, so this may not be a great option for people afraid of heights. Our guide was very safe...More

Best to go by road. The lodge?? Just look for Airbnb or a hotel close by. I've never stayed overnight inside the park. Is that possible??

Yes you can. If you are 8+ months you may not want to do that.....but I didn't see any restrictions for that the last time I was there. Keep in mind you have quite a steep hill to climb to even get to the first family. Head... More
