Canopy Walk, Ghana
Suspended high in the trees in Kakum National Park, Ghana’s Canopy Walk offers a fresh perspective of the lush green jungles of the country’s Central Region. The view from up here is spectacular, it’s true.
But that makes it no less frightening, and those courageous enough to step out onto the narrow walkway don’t tend to hang around. Given the drop, it’s perhaps best not to look down. The Canopy Walk is 1,150 feet long, with separate sections strung between seven trees.
It’s constructed, in the main, from rope, and is a simple structure. With termites working their way through the wooden planks, and the supporting ropes doing little to inspire confidence, you should do a thorough risk assessment before committing to this. Not one for the faint of heart, no-one will judge if you decide that it’s sensible not to take the chance.
