Zaina Lodge, West Africa’s first luxury safari lodge is nestled in the heart of the Mole forest offering world-class hospitality service while preserving nature.
Etched in Northern Ghana, Zaina Lodge offers unparalleled service and luxury accommodation in Ghana’s National Parks and community wildlife destinations earning numerous accolades and recognition including the 2017 World Luxury Hotel Award, 2017 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, and 2018 Luxury for Development GEM Award.
Zaina’s 25 rooms are individual luxury tented chalets, complete with private balconies. There are indoor showers, as well as outdoor showers for those who like to bathe under the stars.
Situated on the largest game reserve in the country, Zaina looks out over seemingly endless savannah. It is quite a sight to behold elephants, waterbucks, kobs, bushbucks, hippopotamuses, warthogs, water buffalos, hyenas and baboons going about their routine.
There is a guided walking tour or vehicle safari. There’s the option to also relax at the infinity pool, outdoor bar, fire pit, or the restaurant where one can take in the intoxicating sights that only the African wild can provide.
The Mole National Park, on which the lodge sits is the most developed of Ghana’s 7 recognized National Parks and 21 protected areas. The park is approximately 4,577 square kilometers.
