Zaina Lodge: West Africa's Luxury Safari Lodge In Ghana
Zaina Lodge is said to be West Africa’s first luxury safari lodge. The mission is to preserve the environment and culture of Northern Ghana, while protecting the natural surroundings of the area.
The lodge has been recognized over the years winning awards such as the 2017 World Luxury Hotel Award, 2017 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, and 2018 Luxury for Development GEM Award.
Each of the luxury tented chalets come with private balconies, indoor and outdoor showers, and hand-carved beds made by local craftsmen and regional artisans.
Located within Mole National Park, it is the largest reserve in the country. Animals like elephants, water bucks, hippopotamuses, warthogs, water buffalo, hyenas, and baboons all visit the waterhole throughout the day.
There are a few options for viewing the animals in their natural habitat: a guided tour, a vehicle safari or even while relaxing by the pool. The safari is the only place where guests see elephants regularly. It’s also a great destination for international birdwatchers.
