GHANA ~ Kakum National Park ~

... Fantastic African National Park to add to my collection♥...  when visiting Cape Coast, one of the major tourist attractions is Kakum National Park and doing the Canopy Walkway... a truly unforgettable experience... this is one of only two canopy walkways in all of Africa... this walkway connects at 40m height seven tree tops with a bridge that is 350 meters long made from cables, ropes and aluminum ladders... the uniqueness of this park lies in the fact that it was established at the initiative of the local people and not by the State Department of wildlife who are responsible for wildlife preservation in Ghana... Thanks a million Evgenia!!【ツ】
