KNOW MORE ABOUT MOLE NATIONAL PARK:

Mole is rich in biodiversity and home to some 742 vascular plant species, over 90 mammal species including 5 primate species, of which species of conservation and tourist interest include Elephant, Buffalo, Kob, Western Hartebeest, Roan Antelope, Defassa Waterbuck, Oribi, Bohor Reedbuck, and Red-flanked Duiker. Rare and endangered species include the Yellow-backed Duiker, Black and White Colobus Monkey, Leopard, and Lion. The Park is also home to 334 bird species, 33 reptiles, 9 amphibian species, and some 120 butterfly species.

The Park has the most viable elephant population in Ghana, and as such, is a hotspot for elephant conservation. It is also said that the Park has a unique breed of elephants, which are not hostile, not aggressive, or insecure, compared to other elephant populations in the rest of Africa.

Mole is one of seven National Parks in Ghana. The other wildlife estates include six Resource Reserves, two wildlife sanctuaries, one Strict Nature Reserve, and five Ramsar sites, managed by the Wildlife Division of the Forestry Commission of Ghana. The Park’s mission is to sustainably manage the wildlife resources of Mole National Park, increase revenue, and generate economic activities around the Park with a view to contribute towards local socio-economic development.

Effective law enforcement and protection of the Park are ensured through the establishment of the range system, and collaboration with fringe communities. Today, Mole National Park is inscribed on UNESCO’s Tentative List of World Heritage Properties in 2000 and is working and striving to achieve World Heritage Site status soon.

Visitors can go on any of the safaris and also spend a night on the tree hide. There is a swimming pool at Mole Motel for both resident and non-resident visitors. With art and crafts being an integral part of northern culture, there is a craft shop at the Park’s Information Centre, which serves as a sales point for locally made items.

Mole Motel is situated inside Mole National Park. The Motel has 33 ensuite rooms comprising chalets, single, double, family rooms, and dormitories. Some single and double rooms have ceiling fans only, while others have air conditioners. The family rooms have three double beds with a ceiling fan and a bathroom and toilet.

The restaurant at Mole Motel operates 16 hours daily (6 am to 10 pm), offering a variety of dishes (local, ethnic and continental dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner).
