Travelled round the park in our own vehicle with our guide and driver. We had to take an armed guard with us. Spent time riding around and walking to find certain target birds. Whilst out saw various animals too, including elphant, waterbuck, kob, olive baboons,...More

Great spot to see elephants, birds, and big game. The guides left something to be desired in terms of knowledge, but were friendly. Large, mixed tour groups that could result in a pairing of wildlife focused people with people with a different focus or lack...More

This is no Kenya or Botswana, but Mole has its fair share of wildlife. I suggest a walking tour over driving as it isn't a wide expanse of land you can see across, instead you have to peak through trees and tall bush, very difficult...More

It is advisable to fly. It's a very pleasant 40 minute flight on AWA. Then a 2 hour drive on a first class road to Mole Park. Flights are about USD 225 return. The park is beautiful. Zaina Lodge is the place to stay!
