      The kakoom national park is located in the central region of Ghana at a vilage called Kakoomdo, about eight kilometres north of Cape Coast.It is well noted for its tourism attractions such as the walk-way canopy which was constructed with ropes hanging on a tree in a typical cool forest reserve. That was not alone; one can also see very exciting colorfull birds and wild animals such as love bids,pigeons owls, falcons, peacocs


      The excitment in feeling the environment and see the endangered species at the park will actually erase the fear and shock of walking on the ten metre long canopy walk-way. I actually enjoyed walking on the canopy while my hands hold firmly on the ropes. Initially, I a little bit was afraid but I garthered enough courage and made half of the distance on the walk-way while sighting very colourfull birds and ...

      • habitats which was very spledid and exciting, coupled with the entire vegetation cover providing a very cool atmosphere. The walk-way looks very dangerouse at the first attempt.

        Kakoomdo is not noted for its game resrve and the canopy walk-way alone. One can also witnes the exhibition of traditonal herbal medicines which normally cure many disease. The medicines are mostly bought by visitors who patronise the place for excitment. And the

        fitness centre or gym which was also being established for the aged at the place. I am not to the required age group of fifty years and above, but I really enjoyed the physical training or exercise with a very good attention given by a specialist stationed at the centre.The gym has been designed to take care of those above fifty years and help them to revitalise their energy level and feel young.
