Mole National Park Travel Guide: 62 reviews and 271 photos

Mole National Park is one of Ghana’s main tourist attraction, and quite rightly so. Although it doesn’t have the same concentration of big game as its counterparts in Kenya or Tanzania, Mole offers some very good safari viewing. The main lure here is the elephant, for which Mole is famous, but there are other animals too, including 94 species of mammals.

The park is at 4000 square kms the largest game reserve in Ghana. It is mostly relatively flat savanna, broken only by a 250m high escarpment – at the top of which lies Mole Motel.

    I always like to read fellow travellers’s stories about places I also visited. Great info about Mole NP, but the pictures of your Patas monkeys are baboons and your Green monkeys are Patas monkeys.

    The park tour must really be a different vantage point, and to see animals in habitat is adventuresome. I wonder why there are no moles there?

    An interesting page on a park I hadn't heard of. Sounds like you had a good time, and saw quite a few animals, a few different monkey's there to what I have seen!

    Great that there are viewing points for watching the comings & goings at the waterhole. It really does sound much better than watching it on TV! We went to a park like this in Swaziland once; not so rich in wildlife, but better service at the restaurant.

    wonderful Photos the story of the Mole Restaurant brings back wonderful memories as I grew up in West Africa (Sierra Leone). Good advise "Don’t get too close to the elephants!"

    Pleased you explained what a kob was, I'd never heard of them. Great pages. (I think you may have meant "lounges" in your "Things to see" tip) Cheers.
