Ghana: Mole NP – Game Drives

Mole National Park is a large track of savanna in northern Ghana that offers a chance of safari-style game drives in Western Africa to observe wildlife. There are elephants here, half a dozen species of antelopes, numerous birds, and supposedly hyena and leopard. This is perhaps the cheapest place to have safari in Africa. But, like with many things in life, you get what you pay for – wildlife is skittish and not approachable (except for elephants), you don’t get to see much on game drives except distant silhouettes of common antelopes that are dime a dozen in the eastern and southern African parks. The night drives are slightly better – multiple sightings of mongooses, genet cats, and bush babies.
