About Mole National Park
Mole National Park is Ghana's largest wildlife refuge. The park is mostly savannah with some forest cover along the rivers and streams. Guided walks are available but you must be accompanied by an armed ranger. Mole National Park is an important study area for scientists as it is relatively undisturbed by human population compared to other parts of West Africa. Over 93 mammal species including elephant, hippos, buffalo, warthogs, monkeys, baboons and antelopes can be found along with 33 species of reptiles and 344 bird species. It is considered a primary African preserve for antelope species.
Located west of Tamale about 4km north of the turnoff in Larabanga.

Crazy baboons jumping around the pool area, a massive elephant living close to the village grounds, cool staff, loads of animals. Good place to go to see wildlife, chill out and meet other travelers of the world!
Not always easy access and the one bus to get out is at 4am... which is a bit rough when you have a few the night before!
The guides are knowledgeable and wise about nature, tipping is a good way to make sure they will continue to do their jobs well!
