Mole National Park
With its swathes of saffron-coloured savannah, Mole National Park offers what must surely be the cheapest safaris in Africa. There are at least 300 species of bird and 94 species of mammal, including African elephants, kob antelopes, buffaloes, baboons and warthogs. Sightings of buffaloes are common from May to September, and you’re guaranteed to see other mammals year-round.
Larabanga Mosque
A 13th century mosque, believed to be first built by Moorish traders, it is one of the holiest site and the oldest Mosque in Ghana and West Africa. Its distinctive façade has been widely photographed. This Mosque is just 5 km into the Mole National Park.
Mognori Eco-Village
Sitting right on the edge of Mole National Park (about 10 km east of the park’s visitor centre), the village of Mognori has become a flourishing ecotourism venture. Villagers here offer various activities: canoe safaris on the river, where you’ll see monkeys, birds and crocodiles; village tours, on which you’ll learn about shea butter production and traditional medicine; and drumming and dancing performances.
Mole Motel
Build in 1961 on a cliff overlooking 2 watering holes, this idyllically situated hotel is an amazing place to wake up-as likely as not to the sounds of baboons clattering over the roof-and it often offers great in-house game viewing. More happily, the swimming pool at the edge of the escarpment is generally very clean and inviting, and a great spot to cool down after a walk in the park. Booking a room ahead of your visit is advisable, especially during the week ends. Visa cards are accepted.
Zaina Lodge
