When most people think of visiting Africa, they think of going on a safari. The wildlife is definitely not the only reason to visit Ghana, but it’s not something you should miss while you’re there, either. After all, when are you going to get another chance to see elephants, hippos and baboons in person, outside of a zoo?
With 93 species of animals, the best place to see wildlife in Ghana is Mole National Park . You’ll be able to check out elephants, hippos, warthogs, water buffalo and more, all in their natural habitat. Some of the elephants will even play games with you. According to TouringGhana.com, Onipa Nua is a bit of a ham: a wild elephant who poses for photos with tourists. Meanwhile, Action, another elephant, likes to play practical jokes on human visitors: charging cars and acting upset just to see them jump!
To visit Mole National Park, you’ll need a passport and a visa. You must apply for your Ghana visa in advance, and allow enough time to receive it before you leave the country. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 copies of the Ghana visa application form. To avoid getting writer’s cramp, you can photocopy the application, BUT each form must have your original signature on it. Be sure to sign each copy individually.
- A copy of your international yellow fever vaccine certificate. Keep the original-you will need to carry it with you to enter Ghana.
- A copy of your round-trip plane tickets or your travel itinerary.
- Your US passport, which must be valid for at least 6 more months and have a blank page in the back where the visa can be attached.
Single-Entry visas cost $50 and are valid for 3 months from the date they are issued, while multiple-entry visas cost $80.00. If you require expedited service, the Ghana Embassy charges an additional fee of $30.00.
