    If you decide to take a 4-wheel drive safari into Mole National Park, beware that the roads are not sealed. They can be very uneven at times, bumpy and uncomfortable, especially if you are travelling on the roof-rack of the vehicle like we did. Hold on for your life!

    Mind the elephants

    Don’t get too close to the elephants! This may be what you came to see, but don’t forget that these are wild animals, you are not in a zoo! Elephants can be dangerous if provoked! The ‘rules’ say that you should stay at least 50 metres away from any wild animal, but I will say that the ranger took us nearer than this.

    An unhappy elephant will initially make a mock charge, flap his ears a lot, stamp his feet and maybe even trumpet. Don’t be alarmed at this stage, and don’t run. Stand your ground, if you are in a group, try and stand close together to make a larger shape. Elephants do not have very good eyesight!

    Knowing all this, when we disturbed a young bull elephant and he started to mock charge us, we all ran like hell, including the ranger! That is, we all ran, apart from David, who was oblivious to the whole incident as he was busy videoing the elephant behind! Not a good idea with five ton of large, angry animal coming towards you! The elephant is the second fastest animal in the world after the cheetah, don’t ever think you can outrun it!

    Water shortages

    Buckets

    Water shortages and cuts are common and in the hotel bathroom were buckets that you were advised to fill at any opportunity you happened to have running water. Which wasn’t very often. Most of the time we had cold bucket showers, but they are very refreshing after a hot, dusty walk in the savanna.

    When you are coming from Tamale by public transport, you should keep in mind that you have to go all the way to Mole hotel and don’t get of the bus in Larabanga.
    Otherwise you have to walk the last 5 km. from the entrance till the hotel.

    It’s always possible to come across an elephant when you’re walking around the hotel grounds.
    Beware, they’re no pets.
