Mole National Park is Ghana’s largest wildlife refuge. The park is located in the northwest and is made up of grassland savannah and riparian eco-systems, the average elevation is 150 m a.s.l. with a sharp escarpment making up the southern boundary. The park is home to over 93 mammal species – including elephants, hippos, buffalos and warthogs – and is considered a primary African reserve for antelope species such as kobs, Defassa waterbucks, roan, hartebeests, oribi, bushbucks, red duikers and yellow-backed duikers. Sightings of hyenas, lions and leopards are unusual but possible. Olive baboons, black-and-white colobus, green vervets and pata monkeys are resident species. Among the 33 known species of reptiles recorded, it is worth mentioning the slender-snouted and dwarf crocodile. 344 the listed bird species, with very good chances to spot: martial eagles, white-headed and palm-nut vultures, saddle-billed storks, herons, egrets, Abyssinian rollers, violet turacos and red-throated bee-eaters. We enjoy two guided safaris, early in the morning and late in the afternoon when animals are more active.
