Was disappointed the first time as the only animals in sight were Antelopes. On the second day while walking we came across few elephants

The park is ok, but so much conservation needs to be done. The guides were lying to us left and right, that we would see lions if we took the more expensive night safari etc. There are no lions.

We stayed at the Zaina Lodge over the long Easter weekend. The animal viewing was fantastic. We saw so many elephants during our stay and the two safaris we took. It is a wonderful place to visit.

We had an amazing experience on the morning safari from Mole Motel. We saw many animals such as warthogs, antelope, crocodiles, monkeys, baboons and so many elephants! What an unforgettable experience!

Experience elephants, birds, antelope and warthogs. There may have been lions at another time, but this is not a park to witness big game. Loved the landscape and exploring the waterhole.

We actually did this as a day trip from Tamale. We went on the 7:00 AM safari. We were fortunate enough to get up close to a couple of elephants. There is nice overnight accommodations there too.. maybe next time..

You won't find the quantity or diversity of animals that are available in other parts of Africa, but will also not find the crowds. We had an entire hour walking alongside a herd of elephants without another person in sight. This walking safari far surpassed...More

From Accra it will take you about 12 hours to get to Tamale, which is the biggest city in the North. From there you will be approached by some drivers who will bring you straight to the park but charge way to much - DON'T GO... More

Hi, Mole is really quite far from Accra despite the good road betweeen Accra and the Northern region. I think its something like 700km probably a day's drive to get there if you have a car. If you're using public transport... More
