Mole National Park Travel Guide: 62 reviews and 271 photos

The largest of Ghana's National Parks with a size of 4840 square km.
Mole National Park is situated in the heart of the Guinea savannah woodland ecosystem.
A total of 600km of game protection and viewing roads have been developed within the park.
A basic 33-bed, no frills hotel facility, which overlooks an elephant bath, offers overnight accommodation and restaurant facilities.


Mole National Park is home to 93 mammalian species, 33 reptiles nine amphibians and an estimated 300 birds species. The mammals include some 600 elephants, 2,000 roan antelopes, 3,000 hartebeests, 4,000 waterbucks, 5,000 buffalo and some 6,000 warthogs. Uncounted lions, leopards, hyenas and various primates can also be seen in Mole.
But Mole National Park has got much much more to offer.

A wide range of accommodation is available at the motel from budget hostel style accommodation to en-suite chalets with fan overlooking the watering hole. The prices are higher than in other parts of the north, but again the motel is the only option for accommodation. Be aware that the electricity supply at the motel is only powered by generator.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Walking Safaris, excellent guides
  • Cons:Electricity till 23.00h
  • In a nutshell:The ideal place in Ghana to spot wild animals.

    Again, fabulous tips and photos. I've never visited an area that I needed to beware of wild elephants. What an adventure this must've been.

    Great set of photos and tips. I was able to plug in my surge strip, as I recall, to recharge the camera, video, and iPod batteries, though, so the power supply isn't all that bad.
