Mole National Park

Ghana may not feature on too many people’s safari destinations lists. But located just six hours from London via plane perhaps it’s time it should. And Mole National Park is one of the best safari secrets worth discovering.

The park is a hideaway in the country’s north. You can access it via four hours of travel on a rib-rattling dirt road. Indeed,  Ghana’s largest national park certainly has all the appeal of a well-kept secret. Mole National Park is no rival to the game parks of East or Southern Africa. Nevertheless, it is one of the few places around where we can guarantee that you will have a close encounter with elephants. And on what must be the most affordable guided foot safaris in Africa.

Ideal for the more adventurous safari goer

On a recent visit, our game viewing began before we even left the campsite. We stumbled across three elephants roaming around the park’s staff quarters. Despite the park’s lack of infrastructure and quality accommodation, it offers much for adventurous travellers. Here, they can savour the fact that for now there still remains one safari destination that is yet to be discovered by the land roving herds.
