Mole National Park Northern Ghana

Mole National Park Ghana – Everything you need to know

  1. Fly to Tamale
    • You can do a day trip from Accra – fly into Tamale at 6 am on Passion Air or Africa World Airlines (it’s an hour’s flight) for $70 return then drive 3 hours to Mole in the Savvanah Region. Once you get to the park, do a 2-hour nature safari to see Elephants and Antelopes and have some breakfast before flying back to Accra on the 5 pm flight.
    • Spend a night or more in Tamale and fully enjoy Mole. This option allows you to do a longer Safari.
  2. Drive 12+ hours from Accra to Mole (this isn’t advisable because of safety).

Get Travel Insurance

I use SafetyWing whenever I travel because it is travel medical insurance created by nomads for nomads. You can buy a policy for the duration of your trip and end it when you want; it is also extremely flexible. Check out their website and get travel insurance for your next trip!

If you’re on a budget but still want to experience a Safari, Mole is where you need to go. Compared to East & Southern African Safaris this is very pocket-friendly.

  1. Zaina Lodge: this is West Africa’s first luxury safari lodge located inside Mole Mole National Park. Staying here is an experience in itself with opportunities to have close encounters with the Elephants.
  2. Mole Motel: this is Mole National Park’s very own lodge. Staying here makes it easy to see all the animals at your convenience.

This park is 100% a bucket list activity and was the perfect first safari (for budget girlies like me).
