By Private Vehicle: Driving to Mole takes about 10 hours (690 km) from Accra; about 6 hours (422 km) from Kumasi; and about 2 hours and 30 minutes (146 km) from Tamale. It takes about 3 hours (181 km) from Wa on the Wa/Kumasi road; and about 4 hours (307 km) from Bolgantanga on the Bolgatanga/Tamale/Kumasi road.
Driving from Accra: 
The Headquarters of the Park is located some 146 km south-west of Tamale, the capital of the Northern Region, and about 690 km from the national capital, Accra. There is only one main Park entrance, located 3 km from Larabanga, off the Damongo-Sawla road.
To get to Mole National Park from Accra, you must first get on the Accra-Kumasi Road. When you get to Kumasi, stay on the main Kumasi highway until you get to Anloga Junction. At Anloga Junction, turn right. Drive straight until you get to Airport Junction. Turn left at Airport Junction, and take the turning to Kumasi Magazine. This should lead to another town called Techiman. At Techiman, ask for the Tamale Road. After crossing a bridge over the White Volta, drive until you get to a small town called Fulfuso (popularly known as ‘Damongo Junction). At Fulfuso, there is a wide junction with a turn to the left. Turn onto this road, and drive for another 89 kilometres (two-and-a-half hours), passing through Damongo and Larabanga, till you get to Mole National Park.
By Bus or Coach from Accra or Kumasi: Board a bus or coach at a Tamale-bound station. If you don’t want to go all the way to Tamale, you can stop at Fulfulso, and take a tro-tro (minibus) to Damongo or Larabanga. From there, you can take a taxi, or catch a ride on a minibus, to Mole National Park.
Scheduled Transport between Tamale and the Park: There is a daily Metro Mass Transit bus service that runs between the Park and Tamale. It leaves the Park at 3:30 am each day, and arrives in Tamale at approximately 6:30 am. The bus then leaves Tamale at 1:30 pm, and heads back to Mole, arriving at approximately 5 pm.
By other Bus or Coach from Tamale: In Tamale, you can go to Sankpala Station, and from there you can board a tro-tro (minibus) straight to the Park. You can also get on board a Damongo-bound tro-tro (minibus), and at Damongo, you can either take a taxi straight to the Park, or board a tro-tro to Larabanga, and then take a taxi or hike to the Park.
Road Transport from other Major Towns: OA Travel and Tours, STC, Metro Mass Transit, VIP and VVIP buses have daily services to Tamale, from Accra, Kumasi and Bolgatanga. From Wa, Metro Mass Transit buses go to Damongo daily, and visitors on the bus can disembark at Larabanga.
By Bus or Coach to Accra or Kumasi: We recommend that you go straight to Tamale, and do not wait at Fulfuso Junction for a bus bound for Accra or Kumasi. The wait at Fulfuso can be unduly long or unfruitful, so it’s better to bear the extra thirty minutes to go to Tamale, and get on a bus from there. Accra and Kumasi-bound buses and coaches have set departures times: the morning buses leave Tamale between 6 am and 9 am, and the night buses leave between 4 pm and 7 pm.
