Mole is known as the best park in Ghana to see animals. But Ghana is not stereotypical Africa when it comes to wildlife (or arguably life in general). The big draw is the elephants, but there are also warthogs, antelope, monkeys, baboons, hartabeests, and buffalo.

Are you doing a walking safari? These are great. There are certainly reptiles but as far as I know it is mostly lizards and such - of course I am sure there are some snakes but I don't know how likely you are to see one. I only saw one the entire month I lived in Ghana (and it was an extremely poisonous one). Maybe I was lucky!

I visited Mole National Park in September 2010, during the rainy season, and saw plenty of wildlife. Have a look at my Mole travel blog. As well as what I describe, you'll also see lizards and geckos in and around your accommodation; bats hunting the moths off the lights in the restaurant; hundreds of different bird species; dragonflies buzzing around the pool, and so on. It's a fantastic place to go.

I didn't see any snakes, but on the walking safari we crossed through a bit of a wetland which was filled with frogs (the air was shimmering with the chirping noise they make), and if we were likely to spot one it would have been there.
