Awesome birding !
Nov 2020
When you visit the park, you're always accompanied (mandatory) by an armed guide. You can only visit the extreme southeast of the park - the rest is rather inaccessible.
I didn't see any large mammals though, except antelopes and monkeys, as they were deep inside the park for the mating season,. I was there for birdwatching and wasn't disappointed at all ! So so many bee-eaters, hornbills, parrots, songbirds,... I spent 2 full days in the park and I wouldn't have minded to stay another 2.

We visited Mole Park in Sept 2019. Overall it was a great experience to see the animals and nature at its best! But be warned of the many HIDDEN CHARGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you breathe the air, they charge you! The people are NOT allergy-aware because nuts is high on their diet! Someone in the team had a near-fatal allergic reaction. Much aggravation before they admitted the ingredients. Solution is just to bring your own food if you have food allergies. The price of the food for a very very rural area is simply extortion, and believe me, the food is not great, so don’t have any great expectations.
The Mole Motel is a separate entity. Hidden charges again. No running water at night so get ready to flush the toilet with the bucket, or even to bathe at whatever time of the day. This doesn’t reflect the price they charge to stay in the motel.
I will visit this interesting place again but next time, we will stay in a hotel in another village eg Kimpala or Larabanga where the prices are far more realistic and the hotels are equipped with the basics and are far more accommodating, and then drive up to Mole on a separate day, visiting the mud hut villages on the way; so interesting.
Best way of transport from Accra is to drive there with your own Ghanaian tour guide because the flights are very expensive and there is no guarantee when you get to the North, to catch a bus or taxi there because the journey by plane is not as straight forward as advertised. That in itself is a near 3 hour journey. So basically, after the flight you have to catch a bus (if available) and or a taxi (hidden charges again). Long story short- this is not not a one day journey!

West Africa's top park!
Jan 2020
We recently spent 4 days at Mole National Park in northern Ghana as part of a 2 week birdwatching trip through this amazing country. Mole is simply put, a must-visit destination for any nature lover travelling in this part of the world.
Although we stayed in the much cheaper and very basic Mole Motel, there is a very expensive and luxurious option available too. To be honest, the basic nature of the accommodations wasn't offputting, as we were out in the bush most of the time anyway!
We undertook morning and afternoon game drives with local guides into the park, from where we would walk in the beautiful surroundings, looking for interesting fauna and flora.
People that have been to East Africa's famous game reserves will probably be disappointed with Mole, as it doesn't have the sheer numbers of animals and diversity of species that the parks in the East have, but it's still a very special place.
We counted more than 100 species of birds (including such gems as Standard-winged Nightjar, Bearded Barbet, Forbes's Plover, Lavender Waxbill, Oriole Warbler and Yellow-crowned Gonolek) and 20 species of mammal, including African Elephants, Kob, Roan Antelope and many more.
Mole is an absolutely unmissable destination on any trip to the Gold Coast country of Ghana.

A Beautiful Experience in Nature
Jan 2020
January was a great time to visit the park. Five out of the six days we were there, we saw wild animals. The only animal we did not observe, was the Cape buffalo. We had the fortune of seeing elephants every day, both on driving safaris and walking safaris. The landscape is beautiful and rugged.
Our guides were professional and deeply cared about the park. Their knowledge was like google when it came to identify birds, insects and animals. They possessed a broad knowledge of the wildlife, their habits, behaviour etc.
Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed their experience at the park and we will definitely plan on returning again soon!

Amazing!
Jan 2020
My hubz and I stayed at the Zaina Eco Lodge and had an early morning safari an an afternoon safari. It was amazing. We saw elephants. ❤If you love luxury, Zaina Lodge is the place. The infinity pool was absolutely amazing. You can spot elephants there drinking water and feeding. So amazing.

Visited at the end of January 2019, drive up with a hire car from Tamale where we were visiting friends. Had booked a package at the lodge which included accommodation, meals and one safari. Had been just for the day the year before. Staff very welcoming, shown to our individual “tents” on arrival, beautifully set out room with tent like structure inside, air conditioning and fan, patio overlooking waterhole, elephants arriving to drink as we checked it. Beautifully clean pool, attentive staff. Lunch good, but only two choices of main course, I had groundnut soup, very good. Afternoon by pool, about 10. Elephants around the waterhole, baboons, deer, too. Dinner good, a self service buffet with good choice. Drinks extra and expensive!! Surprisingly cold in the early morning, good buffet breakfast, then safari with only one other couple sharing, six in total, with driver and guide. Not too many animals, lots of elephants though and funny little warthogs with their young. Half way through stopped off at a waterhole for coffee, cold drinks and shortbread, a nice touch. Would go again, package approximately £220 per person.

Untiring experience
Dec 2018
Went to have my internship there in 2016. Visited again with a student group tour for 2 nights in 2017 and later went to worked there for a period of time from 2018 to 2019. I never get tired of the wildlife, nature and the safari. Being awakened by the sound of the birds, waking up to be greeted by your "wildlife neighbor"(the elephant and the warthogs). I never get tired of the place.
