Fodor's Expert Review Kakum National Park
Get up into the rain forest canopy and see how the monkeys live at this park about 90 minutes northwest of Tarkoradi. Six treetop platforms and a canopy walkway, all reaching 30 meters (98 feet) above the ground, provide an unparalleled view of the rainforest ecosystem. The jungle-like habitat is home to seven primate species, more than 500 butterfly species, and about 250 bird species. Don’t forget to look down, too—you might see elephants foraging for fallen fruit.
