Kakum Nature Reserve



Elephant, leopard, buffalo, warthog and a variety of monkey and antelope species are among the somewhat elusive mammalian residents of this 230 sq mi/600 sq km of protected rain forest. Although park facilities are limited, there is a good restaurant at the entrance—a 45-minute drive inland of Cape Coast. An aerial walkway has been built through the rain-forest canopy, offering treetop views. (Be aware that this is the park's star attraction and that it can get crowded.) Guided walking tours set out in early morning and late afternoon. May-October is probably the best time to see animals in the park. The reserve is located 75 mi/120 km west of Accra.
